Margarita Pizza Recipe

My husband grew-up working in a popular local Orange County pizza place, so fresh homemade pizza is always easy to get around our house. Tonight I was busy working, so my husband made his famous pizza. He got a little creative tonight, and made a Margarita pizza. It was out of this world delicious!!


  • 1 lb. of pizza dough
  • 1 large ripe tomato
  • 1/2 cup of chopped basil
  • 2 Tbl of garlic
  • 2 Tbl of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese

Chop fresh basil, and slice tomato

Roll out the dough, and if you are a master like my husband - toss it into the air! (My advice is to always do this outside, otherwise flour will go all over your kitchen!)

Next brush on the olive oil, and then top with garlic

Next add the basil, and cheese

Top with tomato, and add a little more cheese

Cook in the oven at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes! Enjoy!!


  1. I just ate Eggos and now I am craving this pizza! Maybe I should make today "only eat round food" day. I can have a bagel for lunch, this pizza for dinner, and finish it off with a donut. My poor arteries hate me.

    1. I love the idea of an "eat round day" how cute!!

    2. Don't foget MM's for snack!

  2. OMG that sounds (and looks) so good! Glad for that very important step of the olive oil & garlic, which I would've missed if I had attempted this on my own before reading this post. I think I will have to try this!!!

    1. Enjoy!! We love garlic in our house - maybe a little too much. :)

  3. Honestly, this couldn't look any better! Yum! It seems pretty easy too. I always have a problem with the dough, but your pictures help a lot.

    1. You can get pre-made dough at Trader Joe's. It is not as good as homemade, but it still does the trick.

  4. Looks fantastic! I'm hoping to grow basil this year, so this might have to be the first thing I try!

  5. I've had pizza almost every day this week- and believe-it-or-not this made me want it again!

  6. The finished product looks heavenly!!!
    I'm dying to know which pizza place he worked at!!

  7. That pizza looks so fresh and perfect. I love to cook but have never actually made pizza before. That last picture may be what finally convinces me to do it!

  8. this looks soooo delicious!!! I need to learn to make dough!

  9. Wow that looks awesome...I LOVE pizza....esp. Margarita. I don't think I've ever tossed the dough/crust up in the sky but I'll remember that about the flour. LOL!

  10. Many Thanks for the shared this informative and interesting post with me.
