Pizza..and a bit of Yummy History….

Editor Shantae Taylor

Are there any Pizza lovers out there?  “I like pizza, if I could eat anything, I would take pasta carbonara, I would put it inside the pizza, and then I would eat it like a sub”, says Patrick Downey Jr. Well did you know that the word “pizza”, meaning “pie” was once considered a peasant meal in Italy for Centuries? Pizzas were sold cheap on the streets and markets of Naples. They were not topped with anything but people enjoyed eating them plain. By the end of the 18th century, the residents of Naples began to top the bread with tomatoes which is how we like our pizza today. Street vendors sold pizza in Naples before opening the World’s first Pizzeria, Antica Pizzeria, in 1830. Pizza then came to the United States in the late 19th century and was mostly sold in Italian neighborhoods in cities such as Philadelphia, Chicago, and New York City. Pizza is currently a $30 billion industry in the United States and is available in café’s, grocery stores as well as chain restaurants such as Pizza Hut, Dominos, Papa John’s and Little Caesar’s. There are plenty of pizza styles but some of the most popular ones are: Neapolitan which features a thin crust, with basil and mozzarella underneath the cheese, New York style pizza has a thin crust with sweet tomato sauce with a layer of cheese, and Greek style pizza has an oily crust topped with spinach, feta cheese, and olives.  Now that you’ve heard about the history of pizza and some of the different styles, check out these 10 Great Steps to Pizza and create your own. You can find these steps under the articles/recipe tab.
