It’s All About The Pizza

I have been a pizza lover ever since I was a little girl and learned to appreciate all the different types and styles at a young age. Thick crust, thin crust, round, square, cheese, no cheese…there are so many ways to make a pizza! I have gone through many phases of favorites in my life and these days I feel like you can’t go wrong with a good margherita. Sometimes I jazz mine up with raw garlic and or black olives but the same 3 classic toppings always remain the same. Cheese, sauce and basil. The secret is to only use the best ingredients you can find like Rustic Crust Ready-Made Crust (they have 9 delicious crusts to choose from including a Gluten Free and my favorite Crispy Thin Crust) and their Pizza Sauce that is all natural. Its a great base to start with and then you can get as creative as you want with the toppings. I recently whipped up this margherita and it was dee-lish!
