Capes in the Kitchen: Margherita Pizza with Homemade Sauce

I'm not sure if I've shared my obsession with a little tv gadget you call "The Magic Bullet," yet, have I? (I did post once about my affinity for As Seen On TV items...)

Anyway, The Magic Bullet blender is quite possibly my favorite kitchen friend (along with my Kitchen Aid Mixer) but solidifying this love for my Magic Bullet Blender is the recipe book that it came with and the recipe for homemade sauce that came inside of that.

I'm in love with this sauce and I don't care who knows!

It goes on top of my own homemade Margherita Pizza that everyone loves so much and if we were to have a pizza competition, I'm pretty sure I'd win. We've tossed around the idea of a pizza bake-off contest here between me and my dad because he makes a pretty good pizza too.

But mine is fresh and it is very good for you and it's delicious, so I will share it with you.

Ingredients:
1 premade whole wheat crust
1 8 oz. ball of Sorrento Fresh Mozzerella (my personal fave)
2 sprigs of fresh basil, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
Garlic powder

Homemade Sauce:
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 regular sized tomato (quartered and I use the tomatoes on the vine, so yummy)
1/4 of a regular sized onion (or about 1/4 cup onion) chopped
2 tbsp tomoto paste
2 tsp garlic
2 sprigs of fresh basil
pinch of Italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Directions for sauce: Add all the ingredients to blender in order and blend. (Easy enough.)

Directions for pizza: Preheat oven to 400. Brush olive oil over the whole crust. Sprinkle garlic seasoning all over the crust, paying special attention to the edges (yum!) Spread the sauce all around the pizza starting from the middle and working your way outward, leaving one inch sauceless around the edges. Slice fresh mozzerrella and put around the pie (as pictured or however you want, really.) Sprinkle chopped basil around the top of the cheese.

Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and the crust is a light brown.

That is all.

Deliciousness.

No I don't have calorie count for this one because it depends on your crust but it's yummy and pretty healthy for you except if you eat the whole entire pie and then it's not so healthy. We served it with a spinach salad that the kids actually loved and I took pictures of the kids eating spinach because it made my heart sing.
