Our Story

Toronto’s Queen

Queen Margherita Pizza started like every great recipe: with passion. A passion for Neapolitan pizza and dishes made with only the best, ethically sourced ingredients. From Italy and our own backyard. A passion for the city we live in and the places we eat. And a passion we’re happy to share with you. From Toronto, with love.

Our Name

Queen Margherita

Queen Margherita Pizza is named for Margherita Maria Teresa Giovanna, the Queen consort of Italy during the reign of King Umberto I. As the story goes, for a royal visit to the city of Naples in 1889, local pizzamaker Raffaele Esposito made three different pizzas. The Queen’s favourite was one representing the Italian flag with green basil leaves, white mozzarella cheese and red tomato sauce. From then on, it was known as Pizza Margherita.
