Going back to the beginning of world’s obsession with pizza takes us back to Naples in 600 B.C. At this time, Naples was a Greek settlement. Pizza was developed as a simple and cheap way to feed a large number of working class and poor villagers. Pizza was a food that could be made inexpensively with any ingredients that they had at the time. Flat-breads were readily available so with the addition of toppings, pizza was created. It was also portable so villagers could eat on the move.

In 1861 Naples became part of Italy. In 1889 King Umberto and Queen Margherita visited Naples. Legend has it that they ordered a large number of pizzas to increase their palates and the Queen fell in love with the mozzarella, basil, and tomato sauce pizza. Her name was then adopted for that of the pizza.  Pizza would later become a hit in America before it was widespread throughout the rest of Italy.
