An Italian pizza that historically could only be made in a wood burning oven using flatbread with only three ingredients; buffalo mozzarella cheese, red tomatoes, and green basil. Originating in Naples (Napoli), Italy, the Margherita Pizza was created as a tribute to the visiting Queen Margherita when she arrived in Naples. The main ingredients for the Pizza were chosen as a way to duplicate the colors of the Italian national flag which are green (basil), white (mozzarella cheese) and red (tomatoes). Today the same three ingredients are still used for Margherita Pizza however, additional ingredients that are desired by the chef are often used to create different versions of this pizza.
