What Ingredients are Most Commonly Used in Italian Recipes?
Wondering what ingredients you need in stock when making Italian dishes? We’ve included some of the most important below, from cupboard essentials to fresh herbs.

  • Olive Oil: olive oil is used a lot in Italian cooking, whether it’s to fry ingredients, drizzle over salads and pastas or to serve with bread. We recommend investing in a good quality olive oil if you’re looking to get into cooking Italian dishes.
  • Tomatoes: Tomatoes are super important when it comes to Italian cooking and are also a very versatile component. They can be used for everything from rich marinara sauces to indulgent pizza bases.
  • Cheese: You can’t have pizza without cheese! If you’re looking to make Italian food, we recommend you stock up on the mozzarella.
  • Garlic: Garlic is so important in Italian cuisine. From pasta sauces and pizza bases to rich risottos - garlic is definitely a must have.
  • Basil: Basil is extremely versatile in Italian cooking. It can be used to add flavour to a range of dishes, or popped on top of pizza and pasta for a tasty garnish.
