This aint no Hallmark holiday, this is actually a real thing based in history. Today marks the 124th anniversary of the naming of the Pizza Margherita!
This little writeup is from Scott’s Pizza Tours, a man who has spread the gospel of pizza in NYC. The pizza margherita is a classic pie that can do no wrong. While it was created so long ago from ingredients that happened to be in season, there has not yet been a pizza that can top this.
It’s a naturally occurring pizza phenomenon that pizza science will never catch up with. The simplicity is made up one delicious harmony of basil, cheese, and light sauce.
I’ll post some photos of margherita pizzas later today to commemorate the occasion. Get hyped and eat some pizza!
