Welcome back everyone to our blog at the restaurant Rossini in Plaza Real! Today we bring you a small article dedicated to one of our most popular Italian specialties that we serve daily at our Italian restaurant: Rossini's Italian pizzas.
Currently the pizzas became a popular international dish in Barcelona, that is usually consumed in groups to accompany special occasions such as birthdays and parties. But what many "pizza lovers" do not know about this delicious contemporary Italian dish, is that originally the pizzas were a dish that only poor people from some regions of Italy used to eat, such as Naples. This was a simple dish cooked from a basic flatbread covered with various ingredients.
Did you know that? Well, there is more!
The Italian pizzas became popular because of the italian nobility liking, specifically of Queen Margarita Teresa de Saboya. In court, Queen Margarita was terribly bored of French palace food, for this reason she decided to call an Italian chef to try 3 different varieties of this dish. The chef instead, presented a single pizza with mozzarella, tomato and basil (aesthetically they were the colors of the Italian flag). Its taste and form amazed him so much that he made a tribute by naming it “Pizza Margherita”, the most classic version of this food.
Now that you know the origin of what you are going to eat, it’s time to know:
