Margharita Pizza

{pizza pizza}
I've always been so curious about margharita pizza, since it's obviously not made out of the alcoholic drink, it baffled my mind for the longest time. I also have to admit, I've never had fresh mozzarella before until I made this pizza. It was like heaven! I love cheese, but this was cheese x5! The combination of mozzarella, basil, and tomato sauce is genius. Pepperoni and pineapple has a run for it's money. Anyways, the recipe is farly simple. But lets always remember the rule with pizza... you can make it however you want. This is a great idea if you are wanting to switch things up for dinner tonight!
Fresh mozzarella
Fresh basil leaves, whole
Your favorite pizza sauce
Pizza dough (you can make your own, or use store bought)
Italian seasoning

Preheat your oven to the dough's specifications. Like all pizza, roll your dough out to desired thickness and size, and place on baking sheet or pizza brick. Spread with a thin layer of sauce... then add some more sauce, and spread it around. Slice up your fresh mozzarella, as thin as possible, but thick wont hurt either I suppose. Place cheese slices around on top of the pizza. If you like your pizza super cheesy you can place them closer together. Next, lay basil leaves on top of cheese, again you can use as much or as little as you'd like. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

Bake for time specified with your dough, and enjoy!
