How Did the Margarita Pizza Get It’s Name? ​​​​​​​

Reception and Year 1 girls went to Pizza Express and had great fun making their own pizzas! The girls were given the pizza base which they had to make a crust for and then to put the margarita toppings on.

Making Pizza at Pizza ExpressThe pizzaiolo then showed them how he makes the base by throwing it in the air (a skill the girls still need to perfect!). Not only did they learn how to make pizza but they also found out how the well known margarita pizza got its name; after the Queen of Italy, Margherita of Savoy.

Did you know the colours of the Italian flag are represented in the pizza? Red tomato sauce, white cheese and green basil!
