Margarita Pizza is a pizza classic. This style of pizza was originally made for Queen Margherita, the Queen of Italy by a man named Esposito in Naples in 1889. Italy, Queen Margherita. The ingredients you find in Margarita pizza are typically fresh basil, tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese. During the summer I grow container gardens of herbs, basil is one that I love. This summer I have had fresh salad caprese, and homemade pesto, and I have enjoyed every minute of growing my own herbs. Margarita pizza is a wonderful way to use your fresh basil.
