Pizza Margherita

Servings 2 pizzas


  • 300 g pizza dough
  • 200 g mozzarella
  • 250 g tomatoes peeled and squeezed
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 0.5 tsp oregano
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • basil


  • Make the pizza dough well in advance, see recipe.
  • Preheat the oven to 250°C, preferably with a pizza stone in it. Otherwise, on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Place the tomatoes, salt, oregano and olive oil in a bowl and mix slightly. Not too much, the tomatoes should still be recognizable.
  • Sprinkle some flour on your work surface and roll out the dough into a round thin sheet.
  • Place the dough on a baking tray. Then top with the tomato sauce, stay slightly away from the edge. Bake for 6 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and place the mozzarella on top of the tomato sauce and bake for another 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle over some basil leaves.
  • With an oven stone, put everything in the oven at the same time, including the mozzarella. Then bake for 4 minutes, which is shorter, because the stone gives a lot of heat from below. When the pizza is out of the oven, sprinkle some basil leaves over it.
