Pizza is an Italian specialty loved by people all over the world. So, who was brilliant enough to think up such a delicious dish?

According to history.com, pizza was first created in Naples as a quick and convenient meal for the poor community that populated the area. Pizza began as flatbreads covered with various toppings and was often sold by street vendors as a quick meal.

Legend says that the Margherita pizza (which features mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil) got its name when Queen Margherita visited Naples in 1889 and fell in love with this style of pizza.

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Neapolitan immigrants made their way to the United States, bringing their tasty Italian dish with them. From there on, the popularity of pizza spread among Italians and Americans alike and is still a favorite to this day.
