The Origin of Pizza

The origin of Pizza

Pizza is the most famous food in the world. 
American people are the first consumers, with 350 slices of pizza per second.
But did you know that Pizza was not invented in the US?

The word Pizza comes from Latin “pinsere – pinsa” which was a pressed white bread that already existed during the Ancient Romans time. The Pizza as we know it today was made for the first time in Naples in honor of Queen Margherita. It was simply made of white mozzarella, red tomato sauce and green basil following the colors of the Italian flag. 
At that time, pizza was famous only in Southern Italy. Pizza became very famous only after the Italian signor Lombardi moved to New York and opened a pizzeria.
Today Napolitan pizza is listed UNESCO world heritage product. Italian Pizza is different from region to region. Pizza in Naples is thick whereas in Rome it is thin and crunchy.
