Pizza Alla Marinara (Marinara)

Pizza Alla Marinara (Marinara)

The name of the dish immediately evokes an association with the sea and its inhabitants. But this food, meaning «sea» in translation, does not have in its filling any seafood in classical performance. The reason for this discrepancy lies in the origin of the pizza.

Sea cooks began experimenting with tomato-based seasoning after breeders created these vegetables. These legendary chefs received a delicious sauce by mixing fresh grated tomatoes, garlic, aromatic herbs, and olive oil. The pizza that was made with this sauce was called Marinara. Today, marinara sauce is considered a traditional Italian food that is added to other national dishes such as pasta and risotto.

Pizza Alla Marinara is prepared with stuffing, which includes capers, onions, anchovies, olives, basil. The dough contains only hard wheat flour. If this flour does not exist in your kitchen, you must use crude grinding flour. The dough is prepared using yeast. It must grow within one hour. You have to stretch the dough on the side of the pan and stick it with a fork to get the thinner pan. Then the surface of the dough is greased with marinara sauce. You put olives, garlic sliced with plates, a mixture of herbs, and olive oil on top of that. Put the dough in the oven, and then sprinkle the food with leaves of fresh basil.
