Legend has it that when King Umberto I of Italy and Queen Margherita of Savoy were on business in Naples in 1889, she became sick of eating stuffy meals, so she requested to dine on something that the common Italian would eat. According to Food & Wine, renowned Napoli pizza chef Raffaele Esposito was summoned to supply the royals with a pie fit for a king—and a queen, of course. He and his wife went above and beyond, making three different pies, including one with stripes of white mozzarella, green basil, and red tomatoes, resembling a rather delectable Italian flag.

Of course, Queen Margherita and King Umberto wouldn’t possibly deign to visit Esposito’s pizzeria, so the chef took the piping hot pizzas to the couple himself. As far as we know, it’s the first pizza delivery in recorded history.
