Best Margherita Pizza Recipe Directions

For preparing pizza dough you need only five ingredients and some water:

In a large bowl, mix the yeast with the warm water and the sugar. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place about 15 minutes.

In a separate bowl add a sift flour, salt, the mixture with yeast, olive oil and stir until a soft dough forms, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let your dough rise in warm place about 1 hour.

Start preparing the filling:

Fill a frying pan with a mixture of light olive oil. Add chopped onion, garlic, tomato paste, some water, dry basil and stir until cooked.

Turn the dough out onto a well-floured work surface and knead, adding flour as necessary until a silky, but soft dough forms.

Bake in the preheated oven up to 390F degrees (200C) on the center rack for 7 minutes.

Slice tomatoes and grate hard cheese.

Brush all overcooked pizza dough with olive oil, add the mixture with tomato paste and sprinkle with grated hard cheese.

Put the chopped tomatoes and mozzarella on your pizza and bake for 20 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is bubbling. Decorate with fresh basil leaves.
