Margherita Pizza Recipe

outdoor pizza ideas

The Margherita is a classic Neapolitan-style pizza with simple tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, and extra virgin olive oil. It's a more flavorful version of an American cheese pizza, with style and class as it brings in hints of fresh herbs placed directly on top instead of mixed within the sauce.

The Margherita is a classic Neapolitan-style pizza with simple tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil leaves, and extra virgin olive oil.

Ingredients

  • 1 24 oz Whole Tomatoes, drained
  • A pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 prepared dough ball
  • 00 Italian flour
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh mozzarella ball
  • Fresh basil leaves

Instructions

    1. Make the sauce by adding the tomatoes and salt to a food processor. Process until just combined.
    2. Prepare your dough onto a flat floured surface, then spread a few tablespoons of the sauce into the middle of the dough. Work your way out moving the sauce to the edges, leaving only about 1/4 of an inch.
    3. Drain fresh mozzarella from its water and place it on a paper towel for 30 minutes to continue draining the excess water.
    4. Add the mozzarella to the pizza, then top it with fresh basil leaves and drizzled olive oil.
    5. Place in your Ooni Pizza Oven and enjoy!
