Margherita Pizza.

This DIY Margherita Pizza would be great for a date night in! I do have to give credit to my mother for this one. She made this recipe for us last week and it’s a keeper! We used Bobby Flay’s pizza dough recipe which can be found by clicking on the link below. Also, this recipe makes 2 pizzas! The great thing about making your own pizza is you can even make it gluten-free with a gluten-free dough!

Bobby Flay’s Pizza Dough Recipe

For a crispy crust use bread flour. If you prefer a more chewy crust you can substitute the bread flour for all-purpose flour. Also, flour your pizza stone to prevent the crust from sticking.
