Original recipe for Pizza Marinita™ with mozzarella, garlic, chilli and basil. The best of Marinara meets Margherita. The Marinita is basically a Marinara with mozzarella and chili or a Margherita with garlic and chilli. The vegetarian Marinita combines the fine taste of the two classic Neapolitan pizzas. Only the finest buffalo mozzarella and sun-ripened San Marzano tomatoes are used. As a contrast in taste the Pizza Marinita is topped with fresh basil leaves and a pinch of Italian herbs after baking. The Marinita was - like some other new pizza creations - invented by Alexander Herder in the 21st century.

Brush with San Marzano tomato sauce. Add hot chili and Italian herbs to taste.



If no fresh chillies are available, dried chilies can also be used. Ideally, it should be spicy chilies from Calabria.

Peel the garlic and chop it into small pieces with a sharp knife.

Tear the buffalo mozzarella into pieces and spread it on the Marinita.


Bake in oven preheated to 600 degrees Fahrenheit (320 Grad Celisus) on a pizza stone for 3 to 5 minutes. The baking time depends on the maximum temperature of your oven. A detailed guide is here: Baking the perfect pizza at home.
