I Cooked: Margherita Pizza

Tonight’s dinner is a vegetarian dinner – Margherita Pizza.  My recipe is a conglomeration of several found on the internet that were adapted to fit my needs and what’s in my kitchen.  Unfortunately this means that I don’t have exact measurements, but pizza is pretty easy to “wing”.  Serve with a green salad and you’ll have a pretty filling meal.


  • Pizza dough (I used canned from the refrigerator section at the grocer)
  • Tomato paste, about half a can
  • 2-3 tomatoes seeded and chopped or sliced
  • Minced garlic (I used a couple spoonfuls from the jar)
  • Olive oil, 1-2 tbsp
  • Mozzarella cheese (I used pre-shredded from the bag)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh basil chopped


  1. In a bowl, mix the tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.  Let sit for a few minutes.
  2. Follow the directions on the can/box for your pizza dough.  Mine said to pre-bake at 400* for about 5 minutes, then add the toppings, then bake for another 6-10 minutes.  Others are different.
  3. Spread the tomato paste on the pizza dough first.
  4. Add a little mozzarella.
  5. Sprinkle the tomato mixture next.
  6. Add the basil.
  7. Bake your pizza, cut it, serve it, eat it.
