Americans owe a great deal to Naples for inventing the pizza. You would have to look very hard to find an American that does not like a hot slice. The pizza was invented in Naples in 1889 for Queen Margarita of Savoy. This pizza invention honored the nation. The colors of the Italian flag are represented by the ingredients. The mozzarella cheese is white, the tomato sauce is the red and basil is the green. Subsequently, the pizza eventually came over to America with the immigrants on the ships to Ellis Island.
