In 1861, the king of Italy was Victor Emmanuel. The king's daughter-in-law, Queen Margherita of Savoy, must have been a lovely young lady. When Queen Margherita came to visit Naples, a special pizza was created in her honor.. The Queen Margherita Pizza is quite special due to it being made up of the the colors of the Italian flag which happen to be green, red, and white. The Queen Margherita Pizza looks like it would taste really good, and it also appears to be quite easy to make at home. Mozzarella cheese, provolone cheese, tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, salt, and fresh basil, along with pizza dough will result in a Queen Margherita Pizza. The fellow in the video makes a Queen Margherita Pizza that looks absolutely marvelous. Photo: vintagenewsdaily

@just4him If I use Sargento Cheese, it will be a true vegetarian pizza. Cannot use other cheese brands, but thank goodness for Sargento.

As it so happens, we are waiting for a pizza delivery right this minute and it’s 8:15PM. That pizza is looking pretty delicious to me right now. I had one in Italy and it was delicious!

@DianneN I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian. I will eat a piece of cake or a cookie that uses milk or egg as an ingredient. Darn cheese contains rennet, an animal product, so thank goodness Sargento makes cheeses that do not contain rennet.

Oh so that’s where its name came from. The downside is this pizza has no meat. But it’s still tasty!

Yes, no meat on this pizza. Perfect for vegetarian-me.

Interesting! The first vegetarian pizza?

Yes, does seem to be the first. The cheese used, which contains the animal product rennet, is a problem. I will make it at home using Sargento cheese which does not contain rennet.

@Nakitakona I will have to buy the ingredients. Due to being a vegetarian, I would have to use rennet-free cheese. Sargento makes cheeses that are rennet-free so will have to buy that.

Pizza Margherita has always been my favorite, the one in the photo is not a correct one, you never put slices of tomatoes on a real "Margherita", only tomato sauce and UNDER the mozzarella. and NO GARLIC!!!

I would like the one in the photo and one with just the tomato sauce. Here, a hot dog is not a Chicago hotdog if it has ketchup added to it. Only mustard can be on a Chicago hotdog.

@Corbin5 In Italy there is a sort of "official rule" for pizza called "disciplinare della pizza". A pizza to be a real one must respect the rules and you cannot call Pizza Margherita a thing with garlic ant sliced Roma tomatoes on the top. This is the photo of a Pizza Margherita out of the oven of one of the most famous Pizzeria in Napoli. As you can see the mozzarella is "just nelted", still keeping its shape. Not a melted liquid mess.

@LadyDuck Oh, what a lovely pizza that is. I bet it tastes marvelous!! A Chicago hot dog must be topped with yellow mustard, chopped white onions, bright green sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices or wedges, pickled sport peppers and a dash of celery salt. The complete assembly of a Chicago hot dog is said to be "dragged through the garden" due to the many toppings. I have never eaten any hot dog with ketchup due to that tasting so wrong.

Wow. I had heard of the Margherita pizza before, but didn't know it was named after a real person. I admit it doesn't appeal to me, since I don't like "big chunks" of things lol...
