Pizza Margherita is a timeless Italian classic, a symbol of Italian culinary expertise. Originating from Naples, it features the iconic Napoli style dough, which is known for its light, airy texture and slightly crispy crust. Topped with the simplest yet most flavorful ingredients – sweet San Marzano tomatoes, creamy mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and a drizzle of olive oil – Pizza Margherita is a tribute to the colors of the Italian flag. Each bite of this pizza offers a perfect balance of flavors, from the tanginess of the tomatoes to the richness of the cheese, all brought together on a classic Napoli style base. It's not just a dish; it's an experience that embodies the heart and soul of traditional Italian pizza.

Wine Pairing Suggestion

A classic Chianti or a Sangiovese wine pairs beautifully with Pizza Margherita.

The light tannins and herbal notes of these wines also go well with the fresh basil, making for a harmonious and delightful pairing.
