Margarita Pizza Recipe | Homemade | Pizza Party | Budget Friendly Dinner Party Idea


Margarita Pizza

There is something so good about a fresh margarita pizza.  Maybe the simplicity.  Maybe the cheese.  Probably the cheese and the fact that there is nothing competing with it for attention.

Veggie Packed Salad

I like to serve this classic, simple margarita pizza with veggie packed salad - tomatoes, red pepper, cucumber and red onion.  It makes me feel better about non existent nutritional value that the pizza provides.

Homemade Margarita Pizza

Pre-Made Pizza Dough*
*I bought this dough at Whole Foods, you can also go to any pizza place and ask for a round of dough.  It typically costs about $2 for a large piece.
1 - 14.5 oz. can of crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/2 tablespoon of dried italian herbs (you can use any brand with oregano & basil)
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of sugar
fresh mozzarella
fresh basil
parmesan cheese, grated

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.



For the Pizza Sauce :

In a saucepan, saute the garlic on medium heat for 30 seconds to 1 minute.  Add dried herbs.  Add in crushed tomatoes, salt and sugar.  Cook over medium heat for 10-20 minutes.

For the Pizza : 

On a floured board, shape dough into a round disk.
You may need to stretch and pull it.  Transfer to a baking sheet.


Top the dough with the tomato sauce.

 You can put as much as you like - I like a lot of sauce...
Add mozzarella cheese.  Again, you can put as little or as much as you'd like.  I tried to slice the fresh mozzarella thinly to make it melt easily.
Sprinkle a pinch of dried herbs over the cheese and sauce.

Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes (for 8 inch pizza).  You may need to cook longer for larger pizza or thicker sauce.



























Top with fresh basil and grated parmesan cheese.

  2. Thanks for sharing this recipe it's definitely a really good reward for my brother who got his Alcohol Server Certification last week. But still work on the dough first. I'm not really the cook-type but I'd like to do something special for him.

  3. Hey, great pizza. It would be great if you linked it in to Food on Friday Series which is all about pizza this week.
