The Greeks lay claim to it. Africans and Chinese have maintained that it’s theirs.. There are even Americans who believe it was invented in the US. The French have nothing to say since it was an Italian chef who baked the classic Margherita for the queen of Savoy, which today is under the French domain.. He used the Italian flag as a model, where the red tomato sauce represented the blood of the heroes, the white mozzarella the Snow of the Alps and the beautifully green sage leaves symbolized the green meadows of the valleys.. Sourdough or regular yeast are a matter of taste just like the topping.. What remains now is to make one thing clear… who discovered America?
