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), sprinkle generously with garlic powder and dried basil, then top with fresh sliced tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, 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. 

Bake pizza at 450 degrees until crust is done and cheese is bubbly (about 15 mintues) and 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.
