Pizza Margherita Recipe
Pizza Margherita Recipe:Thick and chewy no rise homemade pizza brushed with garlic and topped with gooey cheese. Easy to make and faster than delivery!
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!
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.
