The pizza marinara has ancient origins, even more than the pizza margherita. His name is misleading many people who imagine a pizza with seafood, but is not so.
The ingredients with which it is prepared today, have remained the same with which was prepared many years ago. Tomato, garlic, oil, a pinch of salt, oregano and a few leaves of fresh basil.
