Pizza: the way to conquer the world

Pizza is considered the main dish of traditional Italian cuisine. Although the history of its origin began much earlier than Italy itself appeared. Even the ancient Egyptians made sour yeast dough bread with algae in the shape of the sun. Some historians believe that its prototype was flat baked bread with filling, which was prepared in ancient Greece. The Romans had a similarity to pizza in the form of a flat cake with cheese, onions, butter and greens.

Pizza: the way to conquer the world

The pizza that we know and love now, that is, classic Italian, was first baked about 200 years ago in Naples. It was invented as a dish for the poor fast food, it looked like a tortilla with tomatoes, oregano, butter or cheese, it was sold on the streets of the city. In the 18th century, in Naples, the first pizzerias were opened, resembling those that go to our time and from which pizza delivery takes place. By that time, flour tortillas with cheese were no longer considered food for the poor, and even began to be served at royal banquets. But pizza won the love of all Italy after unification in 1870. By the way, the first Naples pizzeria Port Alba, which appeared in 1830, still works and is located in the old place.

Classic traditional Italian pizza bears the name “Margarita”. She was named after Queen Margherita, the wife of the head of the kingdom of Umberto. Once the royal family visited Naples and decided to try the famous dish. Raffaello Esposito, the cook-pizza maid, cooked a pizza in the colors of the Italian flag from tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, which the Queen liked very much and got her name.

And in the early 20th century, the Italian dish began its triumphal march around the world, starting its journey from America. She was brought Italian emigrants to Chicago. In the 40s, Americans invented their own pizza with a lot of toppings. Now in the United States there are about 70 thousand pizzerias, and the preparation and delivery of pizza bring the country 30 billion dollars annually.

Gradually all over the world got acquainted with pizza and fell in love with it. It is difficult to find a person who would be indifferent to her. Now there are about 200 recipes for this amazing dish. Each country has its own recipes and preferences for the filling, but the round flat dough cake, cheese and tomato sauce are its essential ingredients and have remained unchanged for hundreds of years.

In Japan, seafood, vegetables and tuna chips are put in pizza. In the USA, they prefer pepperoni pizza, but do not like anchovies. Brazilians add green peas to pizza. Australian residents prefer shrimp and anchovy, the French prefer sour cream sauce and bacon. In England, cooked pizza with tuna and corn. Russians like to use pink salmon, bacon, tomatoes, onions and cheese as a filling.
