The legend has it that after Italy unified in 1861 King Umberto I and Queen Margherita traveled Italy to take an inspection tour of her Italian Kingdom.

Rafaelle decided to make a special pizza for the Queen; he topped the pizza with the colors of the Italian flag, soft white cheese, red tomatoes, and green basil (Turim, p.2).
