Pizza Puttanesca

Pizza Puttanesca

From: Albana – uncomplicatedchef

This type of pizza is inspired by a classic pasta Puttanesca sauce originated in Napoli.
Quite simple pizza, with ingredients that most people have on their pantry, and perfect for busy weeknight.

Made with Sauce for Pizza Napoli

Mutti® Sauces for Pizza are inspired by celebrated recipes from the cities of Positano, Napoli, and Parma.  While each city has its own distinct culinary style, an appreciation for simple, high quality ingredients is a common thread.  Inspired by the pizza of Napoli, this Sauce for Pizza celebrates the Pizza Margherita with a tantalizing blend of 100% Italian sun-ripened finely chopped tomatoes and aromatic basil.
