"This is a historic pizza created in 1889 for Queen Margarita of Italy. She wanted to try the "worker's food" and requested a pizza. The baker designed it in the colors of the Italian flag and she loved it. Pizza became much more popular at that point. This recipe is very simple and quick, it is very good but not for the purist because of the store bought crust."
