Apparently, the first pizza was made for the Royal Palace of Capodimonte in 1889 (which used to be where the kings and queens of Naples and Sicily resided and is now a museum/national gallery). And the rest, my friends, is history.

We all call our inner Kevin McCallister from "Home Alone" when the fumes rise from the box. That beautiful pie stares back at you. All you can do is reply, "A lovely cheese pizza, just for me."

This installment of Tasty Tuesday, let's take a look at Lake County Restaurant Rally Pizza Places. Snap some grams of your 'za and utilize the #LCRestaurantRally from July 31-August 9.
