Margherita Pizza Tips:
- 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.
- An actual tomato sauce can be added. This can be made by pureeing canned tomatoes and then adding a dash of minced garlic, a touch of olive oil, salt and pepper. The layer of sauce should be very thin; this will ensure a crisp crust.
