When Queen Margherita makes a special request after tasting one of his famous pizzas, Raffaele of Napoli beams with pride and goes about town to get just the right ingredients, but when a sneaky cat with a taste for anchovies puts an unexpected twist on his plans, Raffaele must think quickly in order to make an entirely new creation what will be just as good. Based on the true story of the invention of the Margarita Pizza.
