Yes, the style of pizza we eat today is much-recognized as an Italian invention. But it had a history even before the poor in Naples, Italy combined flatbread with various toppings for an easy and inexpensive meal. The Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians ate flat bread cooked in mud ovens and topped with olive oil and spices (a dish known as focaccia). The famous explorer Marco Polo first introduced the concept of a pizza when he returned from China. Once tomatoes were introduced to Europe in 1522, Italians started to experiment with the tasty fruit, and not long after we started to see pizza as the modern treat it is.
You are what you eat, they say. While this doesn’t always ring true, the things you eat do say a lot about your personality. If you eat tons of junk food and drink pop all day, you tend to look a little disheveled or frumpy. If you’re a sushi nut, chances are you have an alternative look or attitude. Today’s fast-paced world requires us to eat on the go, and one of the most popular on-the-go foods is pizza. One look on Yelp will tell you that we live in a pizza world.
