History of Pepperoni Pizza*
According to legend, Raffaele Esposito created the first pizza in June of 1889 in honor of the Queen of Italy, Margherita of Savoy. He created the Pizza Margherita, a pizza topped with tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, which represented the colors of the Italian flag. While pizza has evolved since that time to include a multitude of toppings from anchovies and pineapple to sausage and bacon, pepperoni remains the most popular.
Italian-Americans developed the ever-popular topping through time-honored sausage making techniques. The seasoned pork and beef sausage is smoked and cured until the resulting product is ready to be sliced and placed on a delicious pie.
