Pizza holds a special place in the hearts (and stomachs) of people worldwide, ranking as one of the favourite foods for many. But did you know that there’s a dedicated day to celebrate this beloved culinary delight? National Pizza Day falls on February 9th, marking a time to indulge in cheesy goodness and honour the rich history of this iconic dish.

While flatbreads with various toppings have been enjoyed by ancient civilizations like the Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks, the modern pizza as we know it today finds its origins in the Campania region of southwestern Italy, particularly in Naples. Legend has it that on June 11, 1889, pizza maker Raffaele Esposito crafted the now-famous “Pizza Margherita” to honour Queen Margherita of Italy. This pizza, adorned with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, mirrored the colours of the Italian flag and has since become a symbol of Italy’s culinary heritage.
