With my latest two posts about making tomato sauce and pizza dough, I’m sure you can predict my next post will be the finished pizza. With Jamie Oliver’s quickest tomato sauce and his easy pizza dough recipe, I made Pizza Margherita. It’s a simple pizza but so delicious.
My very first pizza I made from scratch. Super proud!
Let’s make pizza!
Before baking. Now what’s good about making pizza is that you don’t need exact measured ingredients. Don’t you agree with me?
The baked pizza base is soft and the tomato sauce is just perfect. I love everything about this pizza.
