Where Does Pizza Come From?

Pizza is generally believed to come from the Italian city of Naples, though this is not certain. In its older form, it was a much simpler food; the dough was quicker to make then it is today, and the pizza was folded so that it could easily be held in the hand and eaten in the street. It looked more like a pie, which in fact is what "pizza" means.
The Neapolitan (Napoletana) pizza is the oldest form known and still a universal favourite. It is made with a thin, yeast-based dough and topped with tomato sauce, olives, anchovies and oregano. However, there are hundreds of varieties of pizza to choose from. Another classic is the Margherita. Supposedly made to honour Queen Margherita, it has the colours of the Italian flag – red, white and green (tomatoes, Mozarella cheese and basil.)
Pizza is popular with home cooks as it freezes well, so large quantities can be made in advance; you can be creative with the topping; and, if time is short, it's possible to buy the dough ready made.

Although pizza was an Italian dish, GIs returning from WWII loved it, and most of the variations popular today, are of American origin.

God revealed it to the Italians, so that they might share it with all the other peoples; so they might know this was only the very start of a healthy and world class cuisine, and it would be available to all!
Thank you & you are welcome, too!

Everyone that says pizza was invented by the Italians are WRONG!! Look it up it was first created by the Greeks. Im always confused on this too. And always hearing different stories but i would love to know the 100 percent truth.

Most people think that it comes from italy but I was told that it was made in america

the american started of by making it square then the italians made it circular and added toppings. Then they took the credit for it.
