Chili’s Wannabe Margherita Pizza Recipe

Ok, so today we were trying to figure out lunch. Cyndi wanted pizza, and she loves the Margherita pizza from Chili’s. I decided to see what I could throw together to get close, and I must say, this was a darned good pizza.

Printable recipe card below, or click HERE.


Naan (or some other flatbread)

Basil, oregano, lemon thyme (to taste)

2 heatless jalapeno peppers.

1 tomato

a couple of cherry tomatoes

sun dried tomatoes (home made, in freezer from last summer)

I banana pepper

Ranch dressing

Mayonnaise (shh don’t tell her it is in there)

1/4 onion, sauteed

garlic powder (or fresh garlic if you have it)

cajun seasoning

olive oil

Cheese (to taste, we used a Mexican blend)



Preheat the oven to 375. Mix the Mayo and Ranch. You want about 3:1 ranch to mayo.  Add the cajun seasoning and garlic powder to this. Spread the mix on the flatbread, somewhat thin. Sprinkle a bit of cheese over the spread. Slice the veggies and herbs to your desired thickness, and spread them over the cheese. Sprinkle a bit more cheese on top, to hold everything in place. Mix in a bit of olive oil into the rest of the mayo/ranch mix to make it easy to drizzle. Drizzle the mix over the top of the pizza.  Bake for 10 minutes.

Slice it, and enjoy.

This is a great recipe, we had all of the veggies in the garden. I love getting to cook from the garden because I know there are no pesticides or chemicals involved. This one is a definite keeper. Next time I am going to add a regular jalapeno to mine, as I like a little spice.
