Margherita Pizza

by Meghann on July 8, 2009

Man, these afternoon showers are really putting a damper on mine and Abbie’s afternoon walks. We tried twice this evening to get a good walk in and both times it started drizzling less then 5 minutes into it. I can already tell Abbie is ready for summer to be over. lol

When I purchased the Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil on Monday my head was full of ideas on how to incorporate the fresh ingredients into tasty dishes. Last night I made a Caprese Salad and tonight I went with a fresh Margherita Pizza.

I prepared the crust the night before using Jenna’s recipe for The Best Pizza Dough. This afternoon I split the dough in half, put one half in the freezer for another day then rolled the other until I got a nice thin crust that I topped with fresh tomato, mozzarella and basil.

The pizza came out great!!!! I usually love my pizza piled high with veggies, but sometimes the simplicity of tomato, mozzarella and basil is all you need.

With my pizza I enjoyed the other half of my peach from breakfast, a red plum and some cherries.

Love all that red fruit! :)

I tried something for dessert that has bee my head since I received the package of Vitalicous Tops last week.

That’s right! 30 seconds in the microwave then a small scoop of Coconut Ice Cream on top. Complete perfection! I ate it slowly as I could but at the end my tounge took over and I licked that plate clean!

This afternoon I did have a wonderful snack of homemade trail mix.

In the tiny cup I had

  • Raw Cashews
  • Dried Mango
  • Dried Pineapple
  • Dark Chocolate Covered Edamame
  • Awesome Almonds
  • Peanuts

I love throwing random items together in the morning for quick and tasty trail mixes.
