Pizza Margherita

Easiest Italian pizza recipe with only a couple ingredients but same delicious flavor

In case you missed my pizza recipes, well, I’m back. This time I went back to the classics, Pizza Margherita. Delicious in it’s simplicity, with only three ingredients, tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, lore says it was created in honor of Queen Margherita and ingredients are specifically chosen to match those of the Italian flag, but who knows. Personally, I was a bit reluctant of trying this recipe because I like my pizzas to be a bit more richer in ingredients but, it was actually very good and pretty light too. I forgot to add the garlic but there’s nothing to it, though it adds amazing flavor to the whole thing. Everything you need is down in my instructions.
