pizza margherita with cherry tomatoes (Pizza Margarita con tomatitos cherry)

How about a delicious Margarita pizza for the weekend or one of these days.
I am trying not to be so serious with everything we are experiencing.
But we have to continue living and we have to cook and eat and everything else.
We made this pizza recently with my daughter, this  is a vegetarian pizza but if someone prefer can add  ham or other.

What I love about this pizza is the dough: delicious.
I hope you try it and enjoy it and I am sure you will love it
Hugs to all and be safe!
