Pizza Margherita

Ready in 45 minutes

Use dough from KD's Pizza Dough Recipe. Makes medium (12 inch) pizza. This recipe was submitted by Kim

"Tastes so much better than frozen or takeaway. Try using finely grated parmesan just as you take it out of the oven so the cheese melts straight away. I find it goes well with a good salad as a starter and ice cream for dessert for a perfect meal in for two."

This is so delicious! I have made it twice in the past two months. I can definitely tell the difference in flavor when the ingredients are fresh. Thank you so much!

Toppings seem to be enough for two pizzas. Simple. Classic. Delicious.
