It's great to be King. . . I imagine.
This is my son, Shane, and he makes really great pizza. By the way, he is a "self-proclaimed" king. . .In his defense, his Pizza Marguerita is really delicious and my favorite - which in my book qualifies him to be king.
In one version, King Ferdinand was said to dress up as a commoner to enjoy a delicious slice of this Neopolitan delight-banned by his queen.
In another version, a baker created the pizza in celebration of Queen Margherita's visit to Naples.
Thankfully, the popularity of this pizza has spread through-out Italy and is available in just about every pizzaria.
