Primo Video Recipe: Margherita Pizza

Inspired by Old World Royalty.

In 1889, King Umberto I and Queen Margherita visited Naples, Italy. Legend has it that the traveling pair became bored with their steady diet of French cuisine and asked for an assortment of pizzas from the city’s Pizzeria Brandi, the successor to Da Pietro pizzeria, founded in 1760. The variety the queen enjoyed most was called pizza mozzarella, a pie topped with the soft white cheese, red tomatoes and green basil. (Perhaps it was no coincidence that her favorite pie featured the colors of the Italian flag.) From then on, the story goes, that particular topping combination was dubbed pizza Margherita. (Source: The History Channel)

At any rate, it's a pretty delicious pizza and more so when baked on a Primo.
