What is the difference between a margarita pizza and a cheese pizza?
Cheese pizza, while just as delicious, doesn’t follow any of the strict guidelines that make a true pizza Margherita. Fresh mozzarella can be used, but often that’s reserved for the fancier artisanal pizza places—and regular packaged, grated mozzarella still makes for a delicious dinner.
What makes a Margherita Pizza?
Pizza Margherita (more commonly known in English as Margherita pizza, literally “daisy pizza”) is a typical Neapolitan pizza, made with San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, salt and extra-virgin olive oil.
What is real Italian pizza?
Authentic Italian pizzas are based with nonna’s special fresh tomato sauce (which doesn’t get cooked at all!). This rich sauce must be prepared with peeled Italian tomatoes, preferably with San Marzano peeled tomatoes, and then blanched with salt, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil to get an original taste.

What is special about Italian pizza?
With real italian pizza, you will find homemade sauce made from freshly peeled tomatoes and a blend of savory, complimenting herbs. You will also notice that authentic Italian pizza doesn’t combine the toppings and sauce to be cooked together. They simply layer the sauce along the crust.
What is the difference between Italian and Greek pizza?
While a traditional Italian pizza is rolled out and placed on a flat pizza pan or stone, a Greek pizza is laid in a shallow pizza dish that’s been generously covered in oil. This results in a pizza that features a much puffier crust as opposed to the thinner, crunchier crust of an Italian pizza.
Is Greek the same as Italian?
Italians are Greek by DNA. There was a time where there were more Greeks in Italy than in Greece. The Italian Etrurians also came from Anatolia and were Lydians. Kurds, Greeks and Italians from central and south Italy are very much related by blood.
