Try it: Piatti’s Margherita Pizza

2508

Legend has it that the archetypal pizza, pizza margherita, was invented in 1889 when the Royal Palace of Capodimonte commissioned the Neapolitan pizza maker Raffaele Esposito to create a pizza in honor of the visiting Queen Margherita of Savoy. The outcome was a pie swathed in colors of the Italian flag: red (tomato), white (mozzarella) and green (basil). With hand pulled mozzarella, fresh crushed tomatoes and torn basil on a thin crust, Piatti’s take on this traditional pizza is one that Queen Margherita would be proud of. ($13.00)
