We had a presentation at my kids’ school for my daughter’s second-grade class so I needed to make a quick dinner that we could gobble up and run out the door. I used store-bought dough and sauce because it was quick and easy, I threw on some sliced tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and seasoned it with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. I topped the baked pizza with fresh basil. It was absolutely delicious and the entire family enjoyed it. If you need a fast and simple meal… this recipe is for you.

How to Make a Margherita Pizza
Remove the dough from the bag onto a floured surface. Let it sit for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spread dough on a pizza sheet that has been coated with cooking spray and a sprinkle of cornmeal.
Spoon the sauce on the dough and spread evenly. Top the sauce with slices of mozzarella and tomato slices then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.
