How to make your classic margherita pizza
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.
