While the original Pizza Margherita is known for its thin crust and traditional Italian ingredients, our Bavarian-style version incorporates elements of Bavarian cuisine. We have added a touch of Bavarian cheese and substituted the traditional tomato sauce with a tangy Bavarian mustard sauce. These changes give the pizza a distinct Bavarian flavor profile. We alse have the original recipe for Pizza Margherita, so you can check it out.

    Remove from the oven and garnish with fresh basil leaves.

    Slice and serve hot.

Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Bavarian cheese — Use a mild and creamy Bavarian cheese, such as Bavarian Bergkäse or Bavarian Emmental, for the best flavor and melting properties.
  • Bavarian mustard — Opt for a medium-spicy Bavarian mustard to add a tangy kick to the pizza.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a crispier crust, preheat a pizza stone in the oven and bake the pizzas directly on the stone.
  • Experiment with different types of Bavarian cheese to find your favorite flavor combination.
  • Add thinly sliced Bavarian sausages or sauerkraut as additional toppings for a heartier Bavarian twist.
  • Serve the pizza with a side of Bavarian sweet mustard for dipping.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, sprinkle some crushed red pepper flakes on top before baking.

Serving advice

Serve the Bavarian-style Pizza Margherita hot, straight from the oven. Cut it into slices and enjoy it as a main course or as a delightful appetizer for a Bavarian-themed gathering.

Presentation advice

To enhance the Bavarian theme, garnish the pizza with fresh basil leaves arranged in the shape of a pretzel or a traditional Bavarian hat. This adds a touch of elegance and visual appeal to the dish.
