Pizza marinara

Pizza marinara is a style of Neapolitan pizza in Italian cuisine prepared with plain marinara sauce and seasoned with oregano and garlic.[1][2][3] It is very similar to a Pizza Margherita, however it lacks the typical Mozzarella or other cheeses.[4]


It has been stated the pizza marinara was introduced around the year 1735, and was prepared using olive oil, cherry tomatoes, basil, oregano and garlic at that time.[5] Historically, it was known to be ordered commonly by poor sailors, and made on their ships due to it being made from easily preservable ingredients.[6]
