Pizza pugliese [ˈpittsa puʎˈʎeːze] is a style of pizza in Italian cuisine prepared with tomato, onion, and mozzarella.[1] It's named after the region of Apulia (called in Italian Puglia).


Variations exist, in which different cheeses and ingredients may be added. Some versions may also use oregano,[2] olives and capers as ingredients,[3] and some may omit the use of pizza sauce and substitute half of the mozzarella with Provolone cheese that is sliced or grated.[4] Some versions may use pecorino cheese.[5]
