As the end of his pregnancy draws near, I find myself lacking the energy I once had to cook dinner (shocking I know!). This margarita pizza is so easy and so delicious it is begging to be made for the whole family – the perfect thing to make for dinner tonight! We have an abundance of tomatoes from the garden that we used, but of course store bought or farmers market tomatoes are just fine too. And if you want to get crazy and make your own crust, it just makes this scrumptious meal that much better! Serve with a salad and you’re ready to go.
One store bought pizza crust
1/4 cup pizza sauce
One round ball of fresh mozzarella-sliced
2-3 garden tomatoes-sliced in thin rounds
10 or so basil leaves-you can leave whole or chop up-whatever your preference
1-2 garlic cloves minced
Salt and Pepper
1.) Preheat oven to temperature on pizza crust package.
2.) Spread sauce on crust. If you like a lot of sauce, feel free to add as much or as little as you’d like.
4.) Next place tomato slices on top of crust, and add mozzarella slices on top of tomatoes. Sprinkle desired amount of minced garlic on very top.
5.) Cook in oven for about 8-10 mins (follow instructions on pizza crust).
6.) Remove pizza and drizzle a small amount of olive oil over the top if you so desire, and then sprinkle on basil. Salt and pepper if you’d like. Or for a little kick add red pepper flakes!
Such an easy weeknight dinner for the whole family – enjoy! xo, Kara
