Prepare the pizza dough for the Pizza Margherita according to the basic recipe. Roll out the dough balls thinly to the desired size and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Press the edge of the dough between your thumb and forefinger to form a bead.

Briefly scald and peel tomatoes as needed and cut into small cubes. Cut mozzarella into slivers. Spread pizza with tomato sauce, top with tomato slices and lightly salt. Sprinkle mozzarella, drizzle with a little olive oil and season with oregano.

Brush the edge of the dough of the Pizza Margherita with olive oil to taste and bake the pizza in a preheated oven at 220 °C for about 12-15 minutes.

Preparation Tip:

A refreshing flavor note is given to this pizza classic if you put some arugula together with the tomatoes, but they should both be well covered with mozzarella or oil so that they do not dry out during baking.
