Margherita Pizza

Mike’s favorite pizza restaurant is a place in Washington D.C. called Two Amy’s.  I have to admit, their pizza is amazing!  My favorite pizza there is the Margherita pizza, with buffalo mozzarella.  It costs a few more dollars to add the buffalo mozzarella to the pizza, but it is well worth it.  This cheese tastes so much creamier and richer than regular mozzarella.

Luckily, buffalo mozzarella is available from Costco.  I can make my own Margherita pizza at home!
