A classic margherita pizza is one of the simplest pizzas you can make. But with this simplicity comes years of tradition and history related to a peasant dish that the entire world fell in love with.

So if you are looking for a quick eat while watching a movie at home, then you can never go wrong with this one.

Your Ingredients:


1 tbsp of olive oil1/2 pizza crust

2 cloves of finely chopped, roasted garlic

1/4 cup of pizza or tomato sauce

8 ounces of mozzarella cheese, sliced into 1/2 inch thick pieces

2 sliced plum tomatoes

A handful of fresh basil

Fresh ground pepper

How to make your classic margherita pizza

Preheat your oven to 475°F.

Now get a small dish and mix your chopped garlic with olive oil.

Set aside and allow the garlic to absorb the oil. Best is to wait for around 15 minutes.

Once done, spread the garlic and olive mixture on your pizza crust.

Now spread your pizza sauce over your pizza crust, add in the mozzarella slices and your tomatoes.

Throw the crust into the oven for 16 minutes until the crust becomes brown and the cheese starts to bubble.

Slice and serve hot.

I really love this recipe! every friday night my family and i have what we call pizza night and we usually just eat frozen pizzas. this was extremely easy and inexpensive to make and was a really delicious and out of the box idea for my families friday night dinner! thank you for this recipe!

That looks better than little cesars pizza, honestly this deserves a lot of attention.

Margherita is absolutely one of my favorite types of pizzas! I love caprese, and this is basically caprese on a pizza! I also prefer thin crust so this is the perfect pizza for me!

You wouldn’t expect thick slices of mozzarella to melt all over the pizza, but it does!

Looks and is delicious! I love pizza, but never have the time to make it. This recipe certainly inspired me to start cooking it. You are a great cook! Thank you!

Delicious recipe! Very flavourful and it is quite healthy as well. I will definitely be cooking this recipe again and again. It was surprisingly easy. This is actually the first pizza I have ever made and I am very proud. The basil was my favourite part. This pizza preserves really well too and I would say is even better the day after.

One of the pizza places here in Edmonton is run by an Italian family that makes authentic Italian pizza. It’s some of the best I’ve ever tasted, in fact. I order the Margherita pizza there sometimes, and I’ve often wanted to make the same recipe at home. This appears to be really similar to the recipe they use. I can’t wait to try it out next time I’m cooking pizza! For the crust, would you recommend 00 flour?

This is one of my favorite, easy recipes to make at home. Although I am curious as to the dough used when making this recipe. I read that you used a pizza dough crust, but do you buy that from the store or do you make your own. This was the only thing I was unclear about, thank you.

i tried it and my company thought I had it delivered, it turned out just like the picture! It was so easy! I`m definitely keeping this one in my recipe book! I love how it required no special ingredients, all stuff I usually keep stocked at home. :)

Lee Galooch#12

I love the idea of spreading the olive oil and garlic on the pizza. I have attempted to make home-made pizza before. May I ask a question? What is the secret to rolling out the dough properly? Also in this recipe, which I can’t wait to try, can you clarify that we are using 1/2 of pizza dough? Thanks.

Jessi#13

My partner loves margherita pizza, however I find it very boring. After reading your writing about it I am excited to cook this for him!

Todd#14

Hmm Hmm Hmm Gota love a simple but delicious pizza. Its funny how something so simple can be done so wrong, but this is a classic recipe. I really like the use of Plum tomatoes. I usually go with Romas but now I have to try the plum tomatoes

Sarah T.#15

What people are saying about us:

  • "The shears arrived on time and in perfect condition. The moment I picked them up I knew these were quality shears. The very first thing I used them for was to cut a chicken in half. I cut through the breast, right down the middle and then through the spine. For a moment I thought something was not right with that chicken because I cut through it with such ease. I was amazed! They are extremely sharp and have a very nice weight to them. I feel tempted to buy another pair just because."

    By DRW

  • "Very fast delivery, very well packed, friendly, professional, courteous & very knowledgeable service. I'm a line cook so I go through 2-3 thermometers a month. This thermometer is very well built & very sturdy. It lights up which helps a lot. It's very quick on the readings which you greatly need when you have 15-25 things you need to check an hour. The probe is approximately 6-7 inches & at first I thought that was quite long but the more I've used it I like the longer probe. What more can I say about this? It's a great deal for the money & with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. I'll be buying a second & maybe a third for home on the barbeque grill."

    By deb

  • "At last, I can open the jars and bottles without asking for help. We were using some gizmo with a rubber strap that I could never understand how it was supposed to work let alone manipulate it correctly. Chef Remi’s jar opener is very simple to use and it really works on the first attempt with little to no pressure or stress on my arthritic hands. I am so glad I ran across this item and it is well worth the price (which is very good). I can use this tool not only in the kitchen but anywhere there's a jar, bottle or similar container to be opened."

    By grace jones

  • "I saw a commercial for these grill mats on TV, it almost seemed too good to be true.....so I bought them to try them out. Everything in the TV commercial was true and more! You can grill ANYTHING on these mats, keeps flavor in foods, you can add cheese & sauces to your food and there's no mess to clean up! Your grill stays clean, your food tastes amazing, and you simply rinse the mats with warm soapy water! I love these grill mats so much I bought another set for my dad, he grills all year round. My dad loved the grill mats also and is now telling his friends about them. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!"

    By Aly's Max

  • "My new favorite kitchen scissors. I love to cook but do everything I can to not have to touch chicken and these are perfect. Nothing worse than a pair of scissors that leave you half way through a cut and then doesn't come through, these are not those. I can't wait to try them out when making jerky next weekend. I will try to remember to post an update after but sure my review will remain the same. These feel very sturdy and like they will last forever. I have ordered several Chef Remi items and love them all. Wish they would make more stuff I could use as I have almost everything available on Amazon from them."
