Easy Margarita Pizza

7 Aug

Never have I ever made anything with yeast….until now! At first I was afraid that it would take forever, but this pizza crust was so easy and so yummy that I am now a yeast believer. Will I move on to breads?? Hmmmmm, we shall see.

I am in love with pizza, Napoli pizza more than pizza hut pizza. But I had never made it. I stumbled across a few different crust and sauce recipes and decided to combine them. Who knew pizza making was SO easy?! And so yummy! Enjoy this pizza on a family night – the crust is versatile enough to make 4 mini pizzas, each can be different. Or trow a gourmet pizza party! When we move, this is sure to be apart of a housewarming party! YUM.
