Margherita Pizza

For those of you who don't know, we love us some homemade pizzas in the Stephens Casa.
Brad, makes his family's dough recipe and I come up with the ideas for toppings and such.
It generally ends well.
When on our ski trip we saw someone make a margherita pizza and I knew we had to try it at home.
The one main thing they did that I had not seen before was put mozzarella slices on top of the dough and sauce BEFORE putting any toppings on.
I think this makes a HUGE difference.
Fresh basil and tomatoes.
And, a little bit more shredded mozzarella cheese.
Bake and you get..
OMG! Totally delicious!!
One thing I didn't mention is that you should put your dough crust into the oven at 400-degrees for 5-minutes BEFORE you put anything on it, then put your toppings on and bake for 10-minutes.
We also made a white pizza again.
They were all delish!
Homemade pizza nights are our favorite!!
