Traditional Italian Vegan Pizza – History Of The Naturally Cheeseless Pizza
‘As to his food, this is more easy to describe; for, although the lazzarone belongs to the species omnivora, he, generally, eats but two things: the pizza and the cocomero or watermelon. […] the cocomero in summer, the pizza in winter. The pizza is a sort of a bun; it is round, and made of the same dough as bread. It is of different sizes according to the price.’ (Sketches Of Naples, 1845) -> picture of a pizzaiolo (pizza baker) from 1830
The precursors of pizza – flatbreads, like piadina, pinsa, foccaccia and schiacciata, with sweet or savory toppings – were often vegan, unless the flatbread was made with lard instead of vegetable oil. One of the two “true” Italian (Neapolitan) pizzas – marinara and margherita – is naturally cheeseless (and vegan) too! Pizza margherita is topped with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella but pizza marinara – the older of the two dating back to the 18th century – is just topped with tomatoes, basil or oregano, and garlic – no cheese! So if you want a naturally cheeseless Italian pizza, you can order pizza marinara or make the following homemade pizza from scratch in 30 minutes which is inspired by pizza marinara!
