Springy and Easy: Tomato-Basil and Four-Cheese Pizza


Okay, when I say this pizza is good, I mean it! Words can’t describe how delicious, easy and springy it is. It’s also so simple to prepare and can be prepared in under 30 minutes. I used Mama Marys for the pizza crust, but feel free to use your favorite crusts. The combination of fresh plum tomatoes, parsley and basil along with fresh mozzarella, fontina, Parmesan and feta create awesome flavors and textures. All I can say is delish!
