Kate’s Kitchen with Teens: Pizza Margherita
Welcome to Kate’s Kitchen with Teens.
A homemade pizza is healthier, quicker and less expensive than delivery or frozen pizza!
What you need:
1 pre-made pizza dough (whole wheat or white)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic
¼ tsp. oregano
1 ½ cups of whole tomatoes (1-15 ounce can)
⅓ cup of packed fresh basil leaves (torn)
3 ounces of fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven to 450 F. Roll out the dough into a round circle to fit the pizza stone. Spray the pizza stone with cooking spray. Place the dough on the pizza stone and let it rest. Heat the olive oil in a small to medium size skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and oregano and saute for 1 minute (do not burn the garlic!); add the tomatoes, crushing them as you go and let them simmer for 5 minutes, until thickened. Spread the sauce over the dough. Add the fresh basil and mozzarella slices on top. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until crust is browned on the edges and the cheese is melted.
