Margarita Pizza

This is a simple, classic recipe with only 3 toppings which give it a delicate but rich taste. It’s a good idea to use a fine quality sauce (preferably home made) and real Parmesan, as well as buffalo milk mozzarella cheese on this because it makes all the difference when it comes to flavor.
I don’t have a pizza peel so I use this wooden board instead, slightly dusted with semolina.  I topped the pizza with sauce, freshly grated Parmesan and torn bits of buffalo milk mozzarella.
