JAN 17, 2021

UNESCO declared 17th Jan as the day to celebrate the art of Neapolitan "Pizzaiuolo". Today, the Consul General of Italy- my gorgeous friend Stefania Costanza- has sent out pizzas from Gustoso. On my annual trips to Rome, I've been lucky to visit Naples ( Pompeii/ Capri/ Amalfi coast) and to MargAntica Pizzeria Brandi , where in 1889 Chef Raffaele Esposito’s pizza creation so pleased Queen Margherita's nobel palate that he was immediately knighted. Yes , thats where the Pizza Margherita was born ❤
