Easy Five-ish Ingredient Pizza Margherita

Ingredients

  • 1 pack Essential Baking Co. Organic Artisan Thin Crust Pizza Crust
  • ¼ – ½  cup Sonoma Foods Pizza Sauce
  • 1 16-oz pack BelGioioso Fresh Mozzarella
  • 1 medium heirloom tomato, sliced
  • 1 handful fresh basil   

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450℉. Remove crusts from packaging and place them onto a cookie sheet.
  2. Add an even layer of pizza sauce to the crusts. Arrange mozzarella and tomato slices over sauce. Pop the pizza in the oven, 
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 425℉. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
  4. Remove your Easy Pizza Margherita from the oven and let cool for a minute (if you can wait) before cutting and serving. Add fresh basil to your finished pizza and enjoy.

Recipe Notes and Variations

  • The basil is best added at the end, once the pizza is out of the oven. 
  • For a delicious pizza that takes a little more time to make, try our Seasonal Squash and Bacon Pizza. Yum.

    I would love if on the bottom of these recipes pages, you had a tab to click that says ” add these items to my order”. Since the idea is just a few ingredients, that would be great. Having to print out the recipes, wait to shop, find that list and add those items.. seems like these recipes are going to waste. Would be pretty cool too if there was a tab where it saved those recipes as well to reference after the food comes in. 🙂 Just a thought that I know I would appreciate.
