Agreed. I thought basil (basilico) was required for a genuine Neapolitan Margherita pizza.

Also, how much is a "spoon of oil?"

I understand you Benedotta, with the best mozzarella and ripe sweet tomatoes, that's all you need BUT you have to remember, you have these fresh and sweet two things at your hands and some folks don't. I adore basil but in this case, Simple is everything. We had this for lunch today with a green salad as it happens. We are lucky to live where we do aren't we?

Aha, thank you. So, Menumaker, how do you do it/ Maybe with a little bit more details. That recipe reminds of my mom's recipe, there are only couple of hints rather than the whole recipe.

Menumaker, you might think we're uncivilized barbarians over here but, believe me, we have access to most of the same fresh ingredients you do. Mozzarella di Bufala can be difficult to come by (although I know two stores that sell it) but all other ingredients are readily available.

The traditional Margherita Pizza is strictly defined in the Disciplinare di Produzione della Specialità Tradizionale Garantita "Pizza Napoletana" and was designed to reflect the colors of the Italian flag: red, white, and green. The green is represented by basil, so it's an important part of the recipe.

Now it would also be nice to know the rest of the recipe. Ingredients are one thing, but it's helpful to understand the method as well.

No wood fired oven, no success. +1 on the fresh basil.

Yeah, that's true. In Naples it's restaurant and street food. The typical Italian family doesn't own a wood fired oven, either.
