Fresh Mozzarella Margherita Pizza Tips:

  • Spice it up! Add some garlic clove to spice up the dish and add some extra flavor.
  • For the best Margherita pizza ensure a thin crust. The edges can be slightly thicker; however the center of the dough should allow some light through. This will ensure a crisp crunch.
