    Waffled Margherita Pizza

    This fun and casual margherita pizza recipe is made in a waffle iron, with an extra-crisp ridged crust and little wells for sauce and cheese to run into. For a Latin pizza, top with chorizo and queso fresco and plenty of fresh cilantro. 


    Ingredients
    1/3
    cup
    canned pureed tomatoes
    1
    tablespoon
    extra virgin olive oil (plus more for brushing)
    1
    pinch
    kosher salt
    3
    leaves
    basil (plus more for garnish)
    1
    clove
    garlic, thinly sliced
    1
    8-ounce ball of pizza dough, halved and at room temperature
    *
    all-purpose flour (for dusting)
    1/2
    cup
    shredded mozzarella cheese
    *
    parmesan cheese (for sprinkling)
    Directions
    Stir together the tomatoes, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, basil and garlic. Let sit at room temperature to give the flavors time to meld, about 1 hour.
    Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high. Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour and roll out half of the pizza dough into a 6-inch round (or to the maximum size your waffle iron can fit).
    Brush one side with olive oil and place oiled-side down on the waffle iron, then brush the other side with oil. Close the iron (don't push down) and cook until golden and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Repeat with the remaining dough.
    Meanwhile, heat the tomato sauce in a microwave until hot. Spread each pizza with half of the sauce and half of the mozzarella. Place one pizza back on the waffle iron and hold the top of the iron just over the cheese until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and garnish with basil leaves, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan. Repeat with the second pizza.
    Cut the pizzas into slices with a large knife or pizza cutter and serve.
