Pizza Margherita, is a kind of Neapolitan pizza invented in 1889. It happens to be my favorite. I love the dough thick. The dough is to be a thin crust, I prefer a thicker pizza. You make it the way you love it. The authentic way is thin originally and the edges around the pizza are high.
Pizza was brought to the United States with Italian immigrants in the late nineteenth century, and first appeared in areas where Italian immigrants concentrated.
The country's first pizzeria, Lombardi's, opened in 1905. The term pizza was first recorded in the 10th century, in a Latin manuscript from the Southern Italy town of Gaeta in Lazio. This was on the border with Campania.
Today's pizza was invented in Naples, and the dish and many versions have since become popular and common all over the world.
