Summary In 1889 Napoli, Italy, Raffaele Esposito prepares a special pizza for the queen. Based on a true story. Includes a recipe. Raffaele makes the best pizza in all of Napoli. It is so good that even Queen Margherita herself has requested a taste. Raffaele scurries around town to collect the finest ingredients for his pizza, but what will he do when a sneaky cat eats his anchovies? Inspired by the colors of the Italian flag, Raffaele creates a new kind of pizza that delights not only the queen but generations of pizza lovers to come. Nancy Castaldo tells the story of the first pizza Margherita with beautiful acrylic paintings by Melisande Potter. Also included is a recipe for a delizioso pizza.
