Our Elizabeth D. posted a link on her tumblr blog (tumblog? I'm not sure how to spell that . . .) to this Quick Pizza Margherita recipe. I was happy to see it, because I love a good margherita pizza, but have never made it myself! And the word "quick" is always good. Thank you, Elizabeth.
I almost always order a margherita pizza if I'm at a restaurant that offers it. It's interesting to see how different places can make such a simple formula really triumphant, or just okay, or truly awful.
So I made it on Friday night and it turned out yummy and we all three loved it. Hooray! :)
Also, the only ingredients I didn't have on hand already were the tomatoes and the crust, so that was nice. It was economical. I just served it with a salad.
The only thing I will do differently next time is use different dough. I used the refrigerated Pillsbury pizza dough that comes in a tube, and you know, I think it's the same as their biscuit dough. The crust tasted exactly like Grands biscuits. So next time I'll get Trader Joe's pizza dough, which does not taste like biscuits. :D
I guess you could also make your own dough ahead of time and freeze it. Do any of you make pizza dough regularly? Do you freeze it?
