Pizza Mom!

My mother made pizza for us on a Friday during her visit. The crust was a simple, basic pizza dough crust from a book that she had many years ago. The sauce was essentially tomato paste, tomato sauce, garlic powder, basil, oregano and who knows what else. Whenever I make sauce like that it NEVER comes out like my mother's. For toppings we had whole-milk shredded mozzarella, some fresh mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, and basil. Yum-diddy yum yum yum. Thanks Mom!
PS Fresh basil was nearly impossible to find the weeks after Christmas. I ended up buying a whole plant. It died the next day, but we got what we needed.

Nice! Was your mom Italian? That's a perfect Pizza Margherita:) My favorite toppings are ricotta cheese, fresh minced garlic and sun dried tomatoes.
