The Margheritan: a Traditional Tomato, Basil, and Cheese Pizza

Mozzarella, Italian food.

Today’s modern pizza of tomato sauce and cheese can be traced back to an Italian pizzario, Raffaele Esposito of Naples, owner of a tavern called Pizzeria di Pietro e Basta Cosi. In 1889, he created a pizza for the visiting Italian King Umberto I and Queen Margherita. He used tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella cheese to represent the Italian flag’s colors of red, green, and white. The queen asked Raffaele what the dish was called and the smart chef replied, “The Margherita, after you, my Queen.” This recipe calls for two types of mozzarella: One is sold shredded in plastic pouches, available in any supermarket; the other is fresh, a soft, white ball that melts into milky pillows. I usually buy an 8-ounce (225g) ball called fior de latte, or “flowers of milk.” Fresh mozzarella has a shelf life of about two weeks.

Ingredients:

Directions:

1. Brush the grilled side of the pizza crust with the Herbed Grill Oil. Dust with the Parmesan and sprinkle with the mozzarella. Drop spoonfuls of the Chunky Tomato Basil Sauce onto the pizza. Tear the fresh mozzarella into chunks and distribute across the pizza, filling in the holes between the sauce.
2. Grill. Garnish with the basil leaves before serving.

Betty’s English Muffin Party Pizzas Recipe

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Super Bowl English Muffin Pizzas. This is a great party food, because you can provide the toppings and let your guests make their own miniature pizzas!

Ingredients:

English muffins, split in halves
bottled Italian sauce (or pizza sauce)
meat suggestions: browned Italian sausage, browned pork sausage, pepperoni, partially cooked bacon, cooked ham, browned hamburger, cooked chicken, or others (I used only browned Italian sausage.)
vegetable/fruit suggestions: chopped onion, chopped green bell pepper, chopped red bell pepper, chopped mushroom, chopped green olives, chopped ripe olives, chopped pickled jalapeno peppers, chopped pineapple, or others (I used only chopped onion, chopped green pepper, and chopped mushrooms.)
shredded mozzarella cheese
other topping suggestions: shredded Cheddar cheese, shredded Parmesan cheese, shredded Romano cheese, shredded provolone cheese, chopped anchovies, or others

Place English muffin-halves in a toaster or in the oven under the broiler unit until lightly toasted. Place the toasted muffin-halves on a shallow nonstick baking pan or a pan that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Spread each toasted muffin-half with Italian sauce, until the top is covered, but not enough to make the finished pizza soggy. Place toppings, one at a time, on top of Italian sauce, with the last topping being a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese. Place pan in oven that has been set to broil. Broil (with the oven door closed) until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown. The English muffin-half should be nice and crispy and tan. Remove pan from oven, and quickly remove finished Super Bowl English Muffin Pizzas to a large serving platter, and repeat the process for another batch. You can have more than one batch going at the same time, if you have a lot of people to feed, but serve pizzas while they are hot. These are scrumptious, but also hearty and filling, finger-friendly, and just delightful for a Super Bowl Party! I hope you enjoy these! Happy Super Bowl to you and yours! Love, Betty ♥
