simple tomato margherita pizza


Well, goodbye 2013. You were really great. And delicious. And very filled with carbs. Which is what made you so delicious.


We figured the only way to truly close out the year on Food and the City would be one last, final pizza post. Pizza is so dear to us, and if you've been following along for a bit you know its also so very dear to Food and the City. Some of our most popular posts have been pizza related, so it only seems right!


This pizza is light, delicious, and everything a classic pie should be. Plus its perfect for starting off the new year on the right foot! Which is with a lot of cheese.

Happy New Year!
