Although I lived in Barcelona for a few years, I was born in Rome and, as you can imagine, I occasionally miss Italian food; So when I have some nostalgia, I prepare some typical dish. In fact, I have already published several of my recipes inspired by Italian traditional dishes, such as Rice Cake, Ragu Pasta, Salty Pie, but today Pizza! Clearly, my version is super healthy.
Although it is one of the most popular dishes in the world, it is not known the exact moment of its origin; and in the Middle Ages it was largely consumed by the people; As often happens it came to the tables of the nobles and was much appreciated. The most famous anecdote about pizza is this: in 1889, cook Raffaele Esposito prepared a pizza with tomato, mozzarella, and basil as the colors of the Italian flag, in honor of Queen Margherita di Savoia; That day was born the most famous pizza in the world.
