In the grand scheme of things it is difficult to think of a more iconic Italian dish other than pizza. A famous tale of origins of pizza holds that on June 11, 1889 in honor of Queen of Italy, Margherita of Savoy. A Neapolitan pizza maker Raffaele Esposito created the pizza margherita which consist of tomatoes, mozzarella and Basil each representing the colors on the Italian flag. Thus as they say, the modern pizza was born. It's no wonder that this culinary invention is enjoyed by people from all over the world. Actor Kevin James once said "there is no better feeling than a warm pizza box in your lap."

A great rendition of a well known classic. It's the breathtaking Prosciutto & Funghi pizza at Al Borgo. The surface of the pizza is beaming with Italian dry-cured ham and juicy mushrooms. The combination of the two gives a stark contrast in taste and texture which works perfectly together. The saltiness of the Italian ham mixes nicely with the juicy sweetness of the mushrooms, all marrying fantastically with the delicate tomato sauce.
