The Margheritan… Again!

Sometimes the simplicity of just really fresh and flavourful ingredients make the best pizzas. Don’t get me wrong, I love to make some very creative and unique artisan pizzas, but sometimes, you just want classic yumminess. 😉

I will admit, I have eaten many a margheritan pizza in a wide range of restaurants throughout my life. Most of the time, I come to the same conclusion.. unfortunately.. a lot: they can be very bland. Why? Well, that’s because of the ingredients. And probably most importantly, it’s the tomatoes! If you don’t use fresh, luscious, flavourful tomatoes, your pizza will be flat. I am amazed at how many restaurants probably end up using a hothouse tomato instead of a vine-ripen tomato. It honestly makes all of the difference. That, combined with the fresh garlic and basil gives you what is probably one of the simplest, yet most delicious combinations! 🙂

Yummy!
