Best Pizzas on Koh Samui

22 Mar 2021

Of course, Thai food is delicious, but you might not want to eat it all the time.
Maybe you're missing home comforts or just want to spoil yourself; after all, everybody loves pizza!
You can enjoy it at home with friends, in a lovely Italian restaurant with a glass of wine, or let it soak up all the bottles of Leo beer and shots of tequila you had earlier in the night at the bar.

Brief History

For the first time, tomatoes were shipped from South America to Italy in 1522. To begin with, tomatoes were believed to be poisonous. Fortunately, in the 17th century, the area's poorer peasants gradually overcame their concerns about tomatoes and began incorporating them into bread dough, resulting in the first pizzas.

The popularity of mozzarella cheese grew steadily as the tomato's popularity grew. Mozzarella became available in Italy only after water buffalo were imported from India in the 7th century (mozzarella was first made with water buffalo milk). Its popularity grew steadily until the second half of the 18th century, and cheese and tomatoes were not mixed on a pizza until 1889. An Italian tavern owner named Don Raffaele Esposito invented a pizza with mozzarella cheese and basil, ingredients bearing the colours of the Italian flag, in 1889. Margherita Pizza was named after Margherita Teresa Giovanni, Queen of Italy. As a result, modern tomato-and-cheese pizza was developed.
