Pizza Margherita


On Friday night, are you a homebody or someone who wants to go out on the town? Personally, I'm more of a stay at home girl.


I'd much rather watch a movie at home, than fight the crowds at the theater.


Craving more than popcorn with your movie? Try my delicious Pizza Margherita Recipe. It's seasoned crust and melty cheese is perfect for dinner on the couch! So yummy and it comes together quicker than delivery!


Pizza Margherita

I made mine with Stella cheese. Their Mozzarella is perfect for this Pizza Margherita because it melts really well while remaining stretchy. I love that their cheeses have been made the old fashioned way since 1923.

  1. Something wrong with the amount of water. Says 2/3 cup water in ingredients, and then in the directions says 1 cup water initially and then the rest alternating with the flour. What is it really? Please let me know what the correction is. Thanks
