Classic Montanara Pizza Recipe

Indulge in a delicious pizza this weekend which is super simple to whip-up, and will even please the pickiest of eaters.

The traditional Italian recipe features canned tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and a hint of basil for an authentic taste. Create your own dough, or use a frozen variety from the supermarket if you’re strapped for time.

Ingredients

Canned San Marzano tomatoes

Fresh basil leaves

1/2 cup fresh mozzarella

1/2 cup grana padano

Pinch of salt

Method

  1. Strain the canned tomatoes and concentrate them on the inside of your pizza. If you don’t like a thick consistency, use just half of the can.
  2. Place the fresh mozzarella into the centre and follow with the grana padano. Using two cheeses gives it a unique taste (if you’re watching your weight, stick to just one).
  3. Throw on a few basil leaves for that fresh flavour and a pinch of salt over the top.
  4. While the traditional recipe is then fried, we recommend baking it in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. This type of pizza is beautiful when paired with a sangiovese since it corresponds with the tomatoes.
