Also, while this is healthier than most frozen pizzas, it’s pretty high in sodium; to cut back, reduce the amount of cheese.The Pizza Tricolore is no ordinary pizza. The dense green rocket is added last and so avoids the oven, the fresh red cherry tomatoes are lightly blanched, and the milky white mozzarella completes the three colours of the Italian flag. The Pizza Tricolore is also a way for Italy to affirm its historical, cultural and culinary identity and inventiveness at table. Do you know when this pizza was invented?The first pizza chef to become famous was Domenico Testa, who in Naples served a pizza for the Queen of the then Kingdom of the two Sicilies towards the mid-19th century.
