Enjoy Fresh Flavors with Russo's on National Margherita Pizza Day!

May 28, 2024

Summer is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the warm weather than with a slice of pure, delicious simplicity? June 11th marks National Margherita Pizza Day, and here at Russo's New York Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen, we're ready to help you honor this classic pie in style.

The Margherita pizza boasts a rich history, dating back to 1889 when it was created for Queen Margherita of Italy. The pizzaiolo, Raffaele Esposito, presented the queen with a pizza adorned with the colors of the Italian flag: vibrant red tomato sauce, fresh green basil leaves, and creamy white mozzarella cheese. Queen Margherita was reportedly so impressed that the pizza was named after her, and the rest, as they say, is history.

At Russo's, we stay true to the Margherita's essence while using the finest ingredients to create a truly unforgettable pizza experience. Our Margherita starts with a base of vine-ripened Roma tomatoes, known for their sweetness and vibrant acidity. We then layer on a generous portion of fresh mozzarella cheese, sourced directly from Wisconsin for its unparalleled creaminess and stretch.

But the magic doesn't stop there. We take things a step further by incorporating fresh garlic for a subtle hint of warmth and fragrant Sicilian extra-virgin olive oil for a touch of richness and a burst of peppery goodness. Finally, the pizza is crowned with beautiful fresh basil leaves, adding not only a pop of color but also a delightful herbaceous aroma that will have your mouth watering before it even hits the table.

So, this National Margherita Pizza Day, ditch the complicated toppings and celebrate the beauty of simplicity. Head down to a Russo's location near you and savor a slice (or two!) of our mouthwatering Margherita pizza. Made with love and the freshest ingredients, it's the perfect way to experience the timeless taste of Italy.

We can't wait to celebrate with you!
