    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What is margherita pizza sauce?

    Margherita pizza sauce is a bright and tangy tomato sauce that originated in Naples, Italy. Simply defined as a pizza that includes fresh basil, tomato and mozzarella cheese. This pizza sauce should not be overpowered with spices. Why? Because Margherita Pizza is an iconic pizza pie made simply with a high-quality tomato sauce (often made with crushed San Marzano Tomatoes), fresh basil leaves and creamy slices of fresh mozzarella cheese. Margherita Pizza Sauce should be light and refreshing and made with the best Italian tomatoes.

    What is margherita pizza sauce made of?

    Margherita Pizza Sauce is a simple but delicious tomato sauce made with the best ingredients: high-quality Italian tomatoes, fresh basil, an optional kiss of garlic and spices. Homemade Margherita pizza sauce can be made with crushed tomatoes and a few simple seasonings like fresh basil and garlic. DeLallo Margherita Pizza Sauce is a fabulous blend of Italian plum tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, garlic and spices.

    What does margherita pizza sauce taste like?

    Margherita Pizza Sauce is bright-flavored tomato sauce that isn’t loaded up with a bunch of overpowering herbs and spices. It captures a fresh tomato flavor. In our DeLallo Margherita Pizza Sauce, we use a kiss of garlic and fresh basil to enhance the dynamic flavors of red-ripe Italian plum tomatoes.

    Is margherita pizza sauce the same as marinara sauce?

    No, marinara sauce is a pasta sauce and not the same as Margherita Pizza Sauce. Generally speaking, marinara sauce is chunkier with a richer flavor, while Margherita Pizza Sauce is smooth with a sweet, bright tomato flavor.

    What is the difference between margherita pizza sauce and regular pizza sauce?

    Margherita Pizza Sauce is a lighter flavored sauce where the brilliant tomato flavor shines through. This type of pizza sauce is not overpowered by a ton of garlic or spices. A true Margherita Pizza is usually made simply with crushed tomatoes. Regular Pizza Sauce is often thicker with a more rich and robust flavor profile to stand up to such hearty pizza toppings like pepperoni.

    How does this product differ from DeLallo’s other pizza sauces?

    The biggest difference between our Margherita Pizza Sauce and our other tasty pizza sauces is the type of tomatoes used and the resulting flavor profiles. Our Margherita Pizza Sauce is made in Italy with Italian plum tomatoes, where our Pizzeria-Style Pizza Sauce is a domestic tomato sauce featuring vine-ripened Californian Roma tomatoes. The latter sauce has a richer flavor and a thicker consistency. Our Cherry Tomato Pizza Sauce is made with red-ripe cherry tomatoes for a brighter, sweeter flavor. Both our Cherry Tomato Pizza Sauce and our Margherita Pizza Sauce boast a brilliant tomato flavor perfect for the fresh-tasting Margherita Pizza.
