Margherita Pizza

Please forgive this awful, horrible, no good picture. It’s an old one. But, I promise this Margherita Pizza is delicious!!!

Still have roma tomatoes and feta cheese left over from the greek salad? No problem!! Make Four Cheese Margarita Pizza!!

The dough is a Neopolitan crust which means super thin. We prefer thin, but if you like more crust probably dont use this recipe or use two quarters of dough instead of one for each crust.

*If you love tomatoes try slicing them. I am learning to like them so I chop them into smaller bites.

Does Margherita Pizza Contain Alcohol?

A margherita pizza is made with fresh tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella cheese.

The alcoholic beverage has nothing to do with the pizza.

How Do You Reheat Pizza?

The very best way to reheat pizza is on a stove top.

Heat a heavy skillet to medium and add a drop of oil.

Place the pizza in the skillet, and cook for 2 minutes, until the bottom is crisp.

Turn the heat to low and add 2 drops of water along the edge of the skillet, not next to the pizza.

Cover with a lid for 1 minute, until the cheese is melted.

Are Tomatoes Good For Your Heart?

Tomatoes have two key nutrients that have a big impact on heart health.

Those nutrients are lycopene and potassium.

They may help lower LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, and keep blood from clotting, which lowers stroke risk.
