Pizza Marinara is a traditional Neapolitan-style pizza. In its simplest form, it's prepared with salted tomato sauce and served with freshly-cracked black pepper.

Pizza stone or baking steel
Pizza peel or thin cutting board
peeled plum tomatoes
flake sea salt
Crush the tomatoes by hand, season them with two generous pinches of salt—mixing with your fingers to dissolve the salt.
On a working surface that you've dusted lightly with cornmeal, shape the pie. Make a dough ball and press down on it, using your fingertips to push the air out to the crust.
Top with a generous amount of chunky Marinara sauce, making sure there's more near the crust and less in the center of the pie.
Bake in your oven preheated to a minimum temperature of 527°F (275°C) for at least 30 minutes. Ideally, bake on a pizza stone, pizza steel, or with a thick skillet.
Take out the oven in 5-6 minutes, or when the pie has puffed up, leopard black spots appear on the crust, and the tomato sauce has cooked slightly.
Season with a generous cracking of black peppercorn. Drizzle a bit of extra virgin olive oil on top. Slice and serve.
