I just assume this type of attitude is a New York Thang.
But I am curious about one thing, what is a margherita?
I have never heard of this. I assume it is a super sophisticated New York drink or dessert..

That kinds of pizza is tomato, basil, cheese, IIRC.

It’s decent enough if made right. I’ve had it several times in the Midwest.

A margherita is crushed tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. And it’s delicious.

When I was in London, daughter and I ordered a pizza by phone for “carry-out” rather than take-out.

When I showed up the guy asked me, “So, you want a margherita?”

“No,” I said. “I want a pizza.”

Wife back home thought I was nuts. But I’d always thought they were two different things.

No, it's Italian. Named after Margherita of Savoy, Queen of Italy at the turn of the last century. The tomato, basil, and cheese, resembled the Italian flag.
