Its origins and its UNESCO recognition
Pizza is a food spread all over the world, whose origins are difficult to trace back. Evidence of its varieties date back to ancient Egypt (they were more of a focaccia bread), but the very first “official pizza” was baked in 1889 in honour of Queen Margherita of Savoy by the Napolitan chef Raffaele Esposito. The ingredients used to season it were just three: tomato, mozzarella and basil. It was a tasty tribute to the Queen and the Italian tricolour flag!
Pizza Margherita has then become a symbol of Italian culinary tradition, exported all over the world and recognised as UNESCO World Heritage in 2007.
