The first Margherita pizza
In June 1889, the Queen of Italy Margherita di Savoia visiting Naples, expressly asked to eat a pizza. The pizza maker Raffaele Esposito together with his wife Maria Giovanna Brandi was summoned to the Royal Palace of Capodimonte, the summer residence of the royal family, and experimented with 3 different flavours, one of these the "Pizza Margherita", topped with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, to represent the colors green, white and red of the Italian flag. The margherita pizza was immediately a huge success, so much so that it became the best known and most requested taste in the world.
