Italians out there may cringe at this recipe mash up, and even though I'm a Jersey girl, I actually don't have Italian blood in my veins. So I shall feel free to Americanize and misinterpret Italian food culture today! This dish brings together Northern and Southern Italian traditions. Polenta is a cooked cornmeal native to Northern Italy, France, Austria and Switzerland. The Margarita pizza was created in South Italy, Naples to be exact, when in 1889, rumor has it, the city's pizzaiolo was commissioned to invent new pizzas for Queen Margarita's visit. She preferred the one with the colors of the Italian flag: green (basil), red (tomato sauce), and white (mozzarella). I was just trying to create a protein and fiber-packed, heartier recipe for dinner or brunch...ti prego, perdonami!
