Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Thoroughly pat mozzarella cheese pearls dry to prevent crust from getting soggy.
  • tip 2
    Seek out smaller basil leaves for this margherita pizza. If your basil leaves are larger, chop or thinly slice them before placing on pizza.
  • tip 3
    For a margherita pizza with extra flavor and a beautiful garnish, drizzle with more olive oil and freshly ground black pepper.
