Legend has it that the savory magic of the Pizza was first created in Naples, Italy in 1889. Chef Raffaele Esposito was tasked with creating a special dish to honor an official visit from Margherita, Italy’s Queen Consort. His inspired combination of creamy mozzarella, rich tomato sauce and fresh basil was inspired by the red, white and green colors of the Italian flag. The delicious result proved irresistible to the young queen, and the “Margherita Pizza” was born. It immediately became a popular staple on plates across the country.
In the century-plus since, Pizza has grown to be one of the most popular foods in the world. Endless varieties, topping combinations and regional styles mean that there’s a Pizza for everyone’s taste.
