Step by step

Stone the olives and chop them up with the capers

Before filling the tomatoes but after they have been scooped out, leave them for about ten minutes (or even half an hour) upside down in a colander or on a double layer of absorbent paper. This will help them lose some excess liquid and stay more compact during cooking.
The tomato arrived in Europe only after the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus in 1492. At first, it was cultivated only as an ornamental plant. Only later was it discovered that its fruits were excellent to eat. From that point Italian cuisine underwent a revolution, finding its peak, sometime later, in the invention of the pizza margherita.
