Is everyone ready for Halloween and all the treats that will be making it into your house? After all that candy is devoured, you'll need some real food to get back on track. How about some pizza? Made with fresh ingredients, pizza can be quite nutritious. And this Margherita pizza is perfect! Did you know that Margherita pizza was named for Queen Margherita of Italy in the late 1800's? There you go...random fact of the day. A traditional Margherita pizza only has basil, white cheese like mozzarella and red sauce on a thin crust to emulate the colors of the Italian flag. But because the SFFS house is a house of meat eaters, I added sausage. You can totally leave it off though, if you're a purist. This great pizza starts with a yummy thin crust from Mama Mary's. Then sliced mozzarella and basil and some Roma tomatoes....oh yeah! Marinating the tomatoes is one of the keys to making this extra yummy and the ease of prep because of Mama Mary's pizza crust is the best of all!
