RECIPE: Margarita Pizza With Mozzarella-Stuffed Crust

Margarita Pizza With Mozzarella-Stuffed Crust

Summer really hasn't started for us until we've had the first slice of Margarita pizza (named after Queen Margarita of Spain). This year I tried something new by making it with a mozzarella-stuffed crust. A Margarita pizza is really easy to make. Simply make your crust (see recipe below) and top with fresh sliced or cubed tomatoes, fresh basil (I cut mine into thin strips with scissors), and slices of provolone cheese. To make the mozzarella-stuffed crust, just take two cheese sticks and tear into quarters and roll up in the edges of the crust. Enjoy!

Pizza Crust
 
2 1/2 teaspoons or 1 package yeast
1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 1/2 cups unbleached or whole wheat flour
Mix well. Then flatten out in pizza pan that has been drizzled with olive oil. Brush top of crust with olive oil.
