Who created pizza?
In 1889, King Umberto I and Queen Margherita visited a newly unified Italy and came through Naples. Legend has it that they grew bored of a constant diet of French haute cuisine and the Queen asked for varieties of pizza to try.
A baker named Raffaele Esposito of Da Pietro Pizzeria invented a pizza with red tomato sauce, white mozzarella, and green basil. He created it using these ingredients to reflect the colors of Italy’s flag. Apparently Queen Margherita approved of this pizza and as a result, it became known as ‘pizza margherita’.
Though the Queen gave her royal blessing to the pizza, pizza did not become well known outside of Naples until the late 1800s. Which is when Italians began migrating to the Americas and carrying their tastes and recipes with them.
