Freshness is an influential part of Italian cooking style and it goes a long way towards producing that classic taste of authentic Mediterranean cuisine. The flavor that stays with you after consuming an outstanding Italian dish comes from the skillful blend of simple, uncorrupted ingredients harmonizing together in a mouth-watering combination. Here we will look at some of the key fresh ingredients in Italian cooking that bring all sorts of nutritional benefits to a dish, as well as unbeatable flavor.
The reason for the RED color on the Italian flag, the beating heart of Italy, the start and finish of every great pizza or spaghetti dish: Italian cooking wouldn’t be Italian without tomatoes!
Italian cuisine and use of TOMATOES
Tomatoes are a staple part of the Italian diet and you can find them in everything from passata to bruschetta and/or Caprese. Fresh tomatoes contain high levels of antioxidants, vitamins C and K, potassium and folate. This means that they can help to reduce the risk of heart disease and could have anti-carcinogenic properties. Italy produces a vast array of different tomato varieties.
The important use of Garlic
Garlic is often hailed as the ultimate superfood, boasting antibacterial healing properties, high levels of vitamins and minerals, and the ability to reduce cholesterol. The presence of this strong-tasting bulb shines in the creation of sauces and simple dishes like spaghetti or vegan pizzas.
The important use of Basil
The basil plant is an essential part of Italian cuisine, most notably in export: pesto. Whether mixed into a pesto sauce or served fresh on top of a finished dish, this little leaf packs a powerful punch. It’s full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Some claim that it combats stress, supports cardiovascular health, and can even fight depression.
Depending on the type of pizza that you would like to prepare, you have a wide variety of meat options. The meat should be cooked or cured before placing it on this vegan pizza. Several types of meat that you can use on this quick vegan pizza: sausage, grilled chicken, corned beef, pastrami, spicy Italian salami, bacon, chorizo, smoked oysters, butterflied prawns, sardines, or shrimps. But why not choose one of my special homemade pizza recipes?
Actually, the best cheese for pizza is mozzarella. It is well known what a great combination makes tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. So if you want to turn this vegan pizza into a vegetarian one, you can definitely use mozzarella or parmesan and you will have guaranteed success.
- Making pizza is a year-round activity for me, whether it’s a No-knead, no-stretch pan pizza in the winter, a grilled pizza party in the summer or a Neapolitan pie baked.
- Pizza can be as simple or as difficult as you’d like it to be.
- No time to make the fresh dough? You can buy it.
- We’ve all been there. You’re craving fresh pizza, but you just don’t have the time or inclination to make your own dough. Don’t worry, most store-bought pizza dough does just fine.
- Whether you’re making a cooked sauce or simply using hand-crushed tomatoes straight out of the can, you should be using a good brand.
