To prepare the perfect Italian meal, you must have the essential ingredients – olive oil, garlic, basil and tomatoes provide the base for most dishes. The typical Italian meal is often divided into two parts – with a delicious dessert to top things off! It wouldn’t be Italian food without pizza, so it’s no surprise that one of our go-to dishes is a classic recipe. Invented in Naples in honor of the first queen of Italy and with the colors of the Italian flag, Margherita pizza has become an Italian staple.
