Recipe: Pizza Margherita

Features, Recipe

It’s the weekend and you didn’t remember to buy your frozen pizza from the store? Then, it’s time to “get your hands dirty” and cook an amazing pizza in the real Italian style!

This is a very simple and basic recipe for all the pizza lovers. But don’t limit yourself, add as many toppings as you like!


For the dough: 250 gr flour, 1 teaspoons of dried yeast, 1 pinch of salt, 150 ml water

Toppings: Tomato sauce, Mozzarella, Basil

Put the flour and the salt in a bowl and mix them. Warm up the water but be careful to not make it hot or the dough will not rise! Add the yeast to the water and mix it until it’s dissolved. Then, add it in the bowl and mix everything together with a fork. Use your hands and some extra flour to mix the ingredients together until the dough will not be wet anymore, but just a little sticky to the touch. Put the dough in a bowl, cover it with a kitchen towel and let it sit for at least a couple of hours.

When the dough has risen, we are ready to add the toppings! Make the dough flat, spread tomato sauce, sprinkle with mozzarella and put it in the oven 200° for 10-15 minutes. Add fresh basil and your Pizza Margherita is ready to eat!

Buon appetito!
