Classic Margherita Mozzarella Pizza

The fresh mozzarella shines in this classic pizza. Don’t be fooled it’s simplicity, the quality ingredients come together and yield a tasty pizza with depth of flavor. You won’t want to buy another pizza pie again.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min




  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 15oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 ball Natural & Kosher fresh mozzarella, shredded
  • basil leaves
  • 1 pizza dough recipe, divided


In a large skillet, heat the olive oil on medium and cook the onion until translucent. Add the garlic and stir. Pour the tomato sauce and season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, stir and reduce to a simmer. Cook until thickened, about 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 450F. On a well floured surface, roll out the pizza dough and smear a generous amount of tomato sauce. Bake for 7 minutes, then add the mozzarella pieces and bake for another 5 minutes. The pizza is ready when the edges are slightly charred and the cheese is bubbling. Add the basil leaves immediately and serve hot.

    I am a 13 year old girl who loves to cook ( not usually with a recipe) but this looks great and I may try it to make dinner for my family tonight.

  5. Don’t see strawberries or balsamic in the ingredient list. They are mentioned in the last paragraph of the directions.
    Presents a bit of confusion for me! Thank you for clarifying.
