This is a fantastic version of an Italian classic. The feta cheese adds a rich flavor that brings this dish to life. Incredibly easy and incredibly delicious!

This was great - even if I just used the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. Don't make the same mistake I did, though, only brush the oil on the crust - I added the leftover on top later and it was too oily after baking. If you have leftover oil, just throw it out... Read More

Good but not great. Between the salt in my crust salt in the olive oil and in all of the cheese's it was a little overwhelming. Like all the cheese combos but won't follow this recipe next time I want a margherita pizza. Read More

Fabulous! This was just delicious. My pantry isn't very fancy so I didn't use fontina/feta and roma tomatoes, I used cheddar/mozzarella/parmesan and reg big red tomatoes. Turned out just like I hoped it would. Reminds me of the Margherita pizza at Wolfgang Puck's. Used with Jay's Signature Pizza Crust recipe from this site and made one huge yummy 16" instead of two. Thanks for this delicious recipe! Read More

Loved it! I marinated my tomatoes for at least an hour wanted to make sure they had a great garlicky taste. Added pepper on top of them too. Used Mozz Italian five cheese blend some grated parm and the feta. I think my oil blend had great flavor since I let is sit for a while brushed in all over a bobali crust. Smelled great tasted even better. This hands down will continue to be a pizza I make... Thanks for passing it along!! Read More

I love this pizza! The first time I ever made it I followed the recipe exactly now I tweak it to my liking & even make mini-ones. Generally I saute some garlic and fresh spinach in olive oil then I brush that over my crust add fresh basil (if I have it or dried if I don't) then I add the tomatoes (I have used cherry in a pinch) shredded chicken (if I am craving it) then sprinkle it with feta & mozzarella!! Sooooo good! Everyone loves it and it is really easy to prepare... Read More

This pizza is delicious. I've made it several times. I don't use fontina cheese however. I like to use store bought PESTO and olive oil as the base (very flavorful). I also recommend trying jarred sundried tomatoes (in olive oil & spices) instead of roma. And after baking for 10 minutes I broil on high for a few minutes to make it bubbley. Tastes like the expensive brick oven pizza place but at home! Read More

This was amazing! We couldn't stop eating it! I added marinated cooked chicken and used a boboli pizza crust. I also added a little zesty italian seasoning and an extra tablespoon of garlic ( we love garlic) to the tomato mixture. Cooked on a pizza stone with fresh mozerella...yummy! We will eat this as often as my waistline will allow! Read More

I thought this pizza was fantastic - about as close to a "perfect" pizza as you can get. (Definately the best I've ever made.) I used a Boboli crust and regular salt instead of sea salt because I didn't have any on hand. The cheese combination is absolutely delicious. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe; I'm positive I'll make this one again. Read More

Yummy! This is so good. I use Boboli thin crust and added pepperoni to one pizza to please my family. I didn't want to spend the money on the different cheeses so I found a shredded mix of Italian cheeses at the store then I did add the feta. This pizza is really good warmed up as a leftover also!!
