Pizza Marinara

Pizza Marinara

Wake up and smell the garlic being used in your sauce.

The three most important pivots of a good pizza:

Number 1: The Base

  1. 1 1/4 cups All-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 tsp Instant yeast
  3. 1/2 tsp Salt
  4. 1/2 tsp Sugar
  5. 1/2 cup water

How to make the pizza dough?

  1. To make this recipe you first need to activate the yeast. Take a bowl with warm water and add the yeast and sugar so it can feed the yeast.
  2. Put the bowl aside and let it stand for about 5 minutes. You will see foam appear on top. (This is a good test to see if your dough is going to rise. So always perform this step first before adding it to the flour.)
  3. Mix the flour and salt.
  4. Add the yeast mixture to the flour and salt mix and roughly knead it till it comes together to create a ball.
  5. Put this ball in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean cloth. (preferably muslin/cheese cloth)
  6. Set the dough aside inside an unheated oven or a warm dry place away from draft and allow the dough to rise for another 30 minutes.
  7. Once the dough is roughly twice the size, take it out and gently knead it again to ensure there are no lumps.
  8. Stretch the dough into an 8-9 inch circle. (try using your hands)
  9. Make sure it is flat in the centre and becomes thicker going outside. (Quick Tip: Keep adding flour while rolling it to make sure it's not sticky and stretch with your hands instead of a rolling pin.)


How to make the pizza?


  1. Preheat your oven for 30 minutes at 190°C
  2. Get yourself Bella Cucina's Marinara sauce. Stir well before use.
  3. Spread 2-3 spoonfuls (tablespoons) of the Marinara sauce onto the base on the flat part.
  4. Add toppings of your choice like sliced bell peppers, mushrooms or corn if required. (But don't add too many cause it may take the pizza longer to bake.)
  5. Get some Premium pizza mozzarella cheese from The Spotted Cow Fromagerie. (You can buy it on our website: www.bella-cucina.in)
  6. Cut the pizza cheese into slices and spread over your pizza as you like it.
  7. Put your pizza on a baking tray with a baking sheet under it and bake for 15-20 minutes at 200°C
  8. Pull your pizza out once the crust looks ccoked and the cheese is fully melted.
  9. Cut the pizza into triangles and eat.
  10. You can add some oregano or chilli flakes on top if you like. (Quick Tip: You can top it with some fresh basil, fried garlic and/or Bella Cucina's chilli oil)
