    THE BEGINNINGS OF PIZZA..

    The Greek historian Herodotus handed down several Babylonian recipes that were similar to 'pizza'. The ancient Greeks demonstrated knowledge of a wide range of foods, very popular and quite widespread, that can be considered as the archetypal versions of pizza. From the numerous

    RIGHT FROM HISTORY

    historical testimonies given by Greek writers, it was understood that these kinds of pizzas were called ' maza '. In ancient Rome, ' placenta ' and ' offa ', the terms used to describe pizza prepared with water and barley, were used as the main cereal. At the beginning of the Middle Ages, the term 'pizza' was already widespread; however, several local words were used to indicate the kinds of 'pizza' that differ in taste or in the ways they were prepared. These 'pizzas' were well appreciated by aristocratic and popular people during the Middle Ages as well as the Renaissance.

    THE ORIGIN OF PIZZA. ANCIENT. PLAKUNTOS

    FROM STONE AGE :)

    Origin of Pizza

    The origin of pizza can likely trace its roots to the Stone Age, that’s right…bread is one of the oldest foods known to man and the earliest "pizza" was likely a result of these early people adding other ingredients to their bread, around 8500 BC.

    To begin with, the pizza was very rudimentary. It was not even called pizza then. It was just plain and simple flat bread (what we now call the pizza crust). From this you can suppose that the history of pizza originated in ancient times, whenever people started baking dry, crusty bread. Of course, the ancient pizza was baked using stone ovens.

    The toppings differentiate the pizza from plain bread. The real "ancestors'" of pizza (if such can be attributed to something inanimate) are rumored to be the Ancient Greeks' so-called "plakuntos." This looked like the modern-day pizza - it was flat or thin, it was round and it had toppings. Naturally, the pizza toppings then were quite basic. The pizza toppings of old were simple herbs. Similar foods were common in the Persian and Mediterranean region around 500 to 400 BC.

    They found a pizza in a cave? Anyways they'd have to ask americans because the Americans were the first to invent pizza even if they were of Italian decent Add: It's funny who upset people are getting about Pizza... ie. It was the Greeks, It was the Turks, It was the Italians... Pizza is Pizza anyways I'd like to think of it as an American-Italian creation, because the Italians make good food =)

  • Sardinia which was influenced by the Greeks.

    I say that the Greeks may have given the foundation, but the Italians have brought it to perfection.
