The Ultimate Margherita Brunch Pizza

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Red Gold Tomatoes. All thoughts, opinions and recipes are my own.

Growing up in New York, pizza was my favorite food. Not much has changed now that I’m an old(er) lady with a well-defined palate. One of my favorite pizzas is just your traditional, basic Margherita pizza with tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella. There’s something about the simplicity of this pizza that just comforts me.

Pizza Is For Sharing!

Whether store-bought or homemade, pizza is the perfect dish to share. It’s great on its own as the star of the show but goes great with salads as well. My favorite thing? Depending on how adventurous you are, pizza can be a breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner meal. For this recipe, I thought it would be fun to give the Margherita a makeover that is ideal for a summer brunch!

The Toppings

While the toppings for Margherita pizza are pretty standard–tomato, basil, mozzarella–I decided I wanted to switch things up and make it easier. While I love having really fresh and delicious food, my reality is that as a mom who’s balancing a lot at once, sometimes those fresh ingredients go bad. This is the very reason why I always keep canned tomatoes in my pantry. I recommend using Red Gold Tomatoes diced tomatoes for this recipe.

The Red Gold Difference

Last year I can’t tell you how many fresh fruits and veggies I ended up tossing because I never got around to using them. This year I’ve been intentional about buying my veggies both frozen and canned. One of the things that I’m never without are Red Gold Tomato products. After watching how they can their products at their facility, I can confidently feed my family their foods knowing they were canned at peak freshness. You can not only see the difference, but you can taste it too.

For more than 75 years, providing the best quality tomatoes has been their family mission. Their tomatoes are grown by local family farms here in the USA and are steam packed fresh.

In order to make this brunch-friendly, I’m adding scrambled eggs in between the layers of sauce, cheese, and the tomatoes. True-story: I thought that eggs and tomatoes were gross until I finally tried them my senior year in college. Now, I look for any excuse to eat the combination!
