homemade bruschetta pizza

 

A charming pizzeria around the corner from our home, San’s Pizzeria, serves up some of  the best pizza I have eaten.

On our last visit there, we ordered a white margarita pizza with a base of cheese, fresh cut roma tomatoes and basil. When the pizza arrived I was a bit worried that it may be too bland for my Indian taste buds, but boy was I wrong…

Nestled in that cheese was the slightest hint of fresh, grated garlic. This was – garlic bread meets cheese pizza – and the chemistry was instantaneous. So, of course I had to try and recreate this at home for my cheese-loving sweethearts. This pizza is well served with a light salad and a glass of wine for the perfect summer supper!
