Margherita Pizza Recipe

Margherita Pizza

Total Time: 20 to 30 minutes

Serves: 2

Legend has it that the first Margherita pizza was invented in 1889 by the hands of chef Raffaele Esposito at Pizzeria Brandi in Naples, Italy. Allegedly created in honor of Italy's unification, the three Margherita toppings—basil, mozzarella, and tomato—respectively represent the green, white, and red of the Italian flag.

Chef’s note:

  • Fresh mozzarella retains at least 52 percent water, so it’s best to cut it and set aside the slices on a paper or tea towel to remove the excess moisture; let it sit for at least 15 minutes before putting them on your pizza.
  • Once the pizza is out of the oven, cut it into even slices and serve with a side of Boombay’s 100% natural Dill Seeds + Herbs Dip & Spread.


  • 3 tablespoons of Boombay’s Dill Seeds + Herbs Dip & Spread
  • 2 Pizza Bases

  • 5 to 7 pieces of Fresh Cheese like mozzarella
