When did pizza start? Is it Italian for pie? Or does it come from the Greek pitta?
While it is a common belief that pizza was an Italian invention, the history of pizza goes back to ancient times in the Middle East where the Greeks, Egyptians, Armenians, Israelis, and Babylonians first started making their own flatbread focaccia.
Focaccia was cheap and filling food for the working class and was often topped with olive oil and spices.
In the 1500’s tomatoes were brought back to Europe from South America.
Originally thought to be poisonous by the wealthy, tomatoes eventually became part of the diet of the poorer people in Naples.
The addition of tomatoes was the birth of pizza today and all of Italy boast that Neapolitan pizza is the best.
Although the origin of the word pizza is uncertain, we do know where to get the very best pizzas in Port Elizabeth today!
