Beyond the Marguerite Pizza

The combination of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and pesto just happens to be my daughter Marina’s favorite pizza. So simple and tasty; always one of the pizzas I serve on pizza night. Oh I should explain pizza night, shouldn’t I? Well at least once a month I make a batch of pizza dough or two, depending on how many friends the kids have invited over. Then I make a number of different pizzas, one or two at a time for everyone to share. With just minimal prep work and a bit of organization you can have a veritable feast and a pizza party at the same time! Trust me on this; everyone looks forward to finding out what flavor will arrive next!

From the original site: The home made pizza is a very distant cousin from the frozen, take out or home delivery version. The flavors are much fresher and lighter; no thick salty tomato sauce made with too much tomato paste and no overly processed pre grated cheeses.

I am a passionate home cook with more years experience than I care to admit. From the time I was a child making up pancake recipes with nothing more than flour and water, my favorite times, other than being with my husband and kids, are always in the kitchen. I’ve live many places; from Tacoma, Washington to Malibu, California, on to the south of France for 11 years and now Nokomis Florida. Each place offered its own kind of food and local specialties and I made it my business to become intimate with them all! While living in the south of France, we were only 45 minutes from Italy. Grocery shopping excursions to San Remo, Italy were a monthly occurrence. Not all that long ago, the southern part of France was actually part of what is now Italy so the regional cuisine has influences from both cultures. What a treat it was to explore all the traditional dishes from both countries! My goal is to share my passion for cooking with seasonal fresh ingredients; to explore with you all of nature’s bounty and travel together on a path of sharing great food at your family table!
