Join us this February 9 as we honor National Pizza Day! The wonderful pie grew to become a symbol of designed craft everywhere it is found. Let’s hear it for pizza!
Why not celebrate the origin of pizza with a wonderful glass of wine at a place that makes pizza just like they did for Queen Margherita 130 years ago!
Though flatbreads with toppings were enjoyed by ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians, Pizza as we know it originated in Naples, Italy.
Legend says that in 1889 when King Umberto I visited Queen Margherita, the couple became bored with their steady diet of French food and asked their local Pizzeria Brandi for an array of pizzas. The variety Margherita loved the most was called pizza mozzarella, a sort of pie made with delicious white cheese.
Pizza didn’t become so incredibly delicious until the 40s, when Italian immigrants introduced Pizza to New Yorkers, making it an iconic culinary statement.
