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.
