Soft, airy focaccia is the perfect backdrop for this classic flavor combination. It’s so quick and delicious, you might give up on making actual pizza.
Margherita Pizza on Focaccia
- Cooking and Prep: 30 m
- Serves: 4
For the Sandwiches
To assemble, smear marinara sauce on half the pieces of focaccia, then top with basil and mozzarella. Smear the pesto on the other pieces and assemble the sandwiches.
Heat a large skillet over a medium-high flame. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in the preheated skillet. Once melted, place 1 or 2 sandwiches in the pan (depending on space) and fry on both sides until the cheese melts, about 4 to 6 minutes on each side. (If the bread begins to burn before the cheese melts, reduce the heat and cover the skillet.) Add 1 tablespoon butter in between every sandwich. Serve hot.
