  • Pizza was a peasant bread sold on the streets of Naples. Pizza became popular when a pizzaiolo (pizza maker) made a pizza for the queen, Margherita of Savoy. The tomatoes, buffalo cheese and basil on this special pizza represented the colors of the new Italian flag (red, white, green) and later became known as a Margherita pizza.

  • Follow the 30 minute pizza recipe

  • Add precut toppings (preferably from the school garden, home garden or farmers market)

  • Bake in brick oven or conventional oven or quick freeze to take home to bake
