Everyone seems to like pizza, whether we eat it out at a restaurant or make it at home with family and friends.
Italian in origin, the taste of that bread-like crust covered with a seasoned tomato sauce, cheese and other toppings is irresistible to most of us.
Early forms of pizza were most likely what we call “focaccia” today, since tomatoes didn’t become part of the Italian landscape until the 16th century. No tomato sauce, no pizza pie. The addition of mozzarella cheese didn’t come about until the late 19th century.
