A Delicious History of Your Favourite Classic Margherita Pizza

Posted by Domino's India I December 4th, 2019

Margherita pizza

Not a day goes by when we do not thank the creator of the simplest yet tastiest pizza in the whole wide world.

Yes, you guessed it right! We are talking about the ever-delicious margherita pizza. True, several toppings came and tantalized our taste buds. But there is something about these classic slices that cannot be replaced with anything.

Plus, it has royal connections.

The story behind it…

Did you know that present Italy came into existence in 1860? Before that, it was just a peninsula clustered with several states and kingdoms. Mere 29 years later, King Umberto I and his wife Queen Margherita of Savoy came to visit Naples. It is believed that her majesty quickly grew tired of the royal French cuisine and took a fancy to the flatbread that local peasants used to eat. She summoned the famous Neapolitan chef of that era Raffaele Esposito and ordered him to prepare her a pizza.

The chef then baked a special version with toppings true to the colour of unified Italy’s flag: red tomatoes, white mozzarella cheese and fresh green basil. Queen approved of it. The chef afterwards named this creation after the queen. Thus, the margherita pizza became famous.


The above story cannot be strictly called the origin story of our favourite pizza. A similar recipe has been traced back to an 1866’s book “Customs & Traditions of Naples”. However, it was only after Esposito presenting it to the Queen Margherita that made it famous. The world got to know about this terrific pizza with Italian immigration.

Honestly, now we cannot think of human existence without it. Celebrate this story with a double cheese margherita pizza now. Order your cheese pizza from our app or call Domino’s customer care number:1860-210-0000.

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  7. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you
    could be giving us something informative to read?
