Today is NATIONAL PIZZA DAY!!!!!
Let’s celebrate with us @dolcesalatofla ❤️🤍💚
A bit of history…
“In 1861, Italy finally unified, and King Umberto I and Queen Margherita visited Naples in 1889. Legend says that the traveling pair became bored with their steady diet of French cuisine and asked for an assortment of pizzas from the city’s Pizzeria Brandi, founded in 1760. The variety the queen enjoyed the most was called pizza mozzarella, a pie topped with the soft white cheese, red tomatoes, and green basil… The name became “Pizza Margherita”.
However, even with the Queen’s love for the dish, pizza would remain little known in Italy beyond Naples’ borders until the 1940s. Across the sea, immigrants to the United States from Naples were replicating their flatbreads in New York and other American cities.
Relatively quickly, the flavors and aromas of pizza began to intrigue non-Neapolitans and non-Italians alike.”
