Margherita-Style Pizza

Margherita-Style Pizza

There are very few ingredients for this pizza, yet it is extremely flavoursome, even more so when you use fresh herbs from the garden.


  • Pizza sauce 
  • Fresh mozzarella
  • Thyme 
  • Basil
  • Oregano  
  • Pizza Dough 

You can find the pizza dough recipe I use here (this amount makes about 4 circular pizzas so half the recipe if you want less. If you want to make super quick pizza dough (without the need to wait for rising, use this recipe

Margherita-Style Pizza


  1. Make the pizza dough
  2. Roll out the dough and then pull it a little further with your hands
  3. Lay the dough over a pizza or baking tray. Trim the dough from the sides. I usually just fold the edge over just slightly at the ends to make a crust. Sometimes I place a little grated cheese along the edge before folding it over to make a cheese crust. Kids love it.
  4. Spread pizza sauce or tomato paste over the base.
  5. Pull off the leaves from the thyme and dice the oregano and sprinkle over the base.
  6. Slice fresh mozzarella and place on the pizza.
  7. Bake in a preheated hot oven (220 °C) for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden.
  8. Remove from oven and lay basil leaves over the top of the pizza.
