- The first time researchers have found the word “pizza” anywhere was way back in Italy (Gaeta), just before the turn of the millenium in 997 C.E. The precursors to modern-day pizza were flatbreads, known as focaccias, which were more like breadsticks with toppings than anything else. Though the earliest pizzas are thought to be sweet dishes rather than savory, others maintain that the first pizzas were made for those who heralded from lower classes, rather than being a delicacy.
- Around the 18th century, Naples finally got ahold of things and decided to create a style of pizza many of us would deem delicious to this day. Though it isn’t New YORK-style pizza, which as we all know is the greatest kind of pizza in the world, Neapolitan-style pizza comes pretty darn close. They added tomatoes to their flatbread, and shortly thereafter the modern day notion of pizza with tomatoes and cheese was born!
- Fast-forwarding to the present day, and it’s safe to say that we Americans have sufficiently fallen in love with pizza. Any given day, one out of every eight Americans will eat pizza, and over a quarter of boys between six and nineteen will eat pizza every day.
