That did start in Italy. Specifically, baker Raffaele Esposito from Naples is often given credit for making the first such pizza pie. Historians note, however, that street vendors in Naples sold flatbreads with toppings for many years before then.
Marco Polo brought with him what was a flat bread that could be considered some manifestation of the current pizza. The thing is the pizza with its tomato sauce and cheese were Italian in origin but the concept that Polo had created came from China.
Modern pizza evolved from similar flatbread dishes in Naples, Italy, in the 18th or early 19th century. The word pizza was first documented in A.D. 997 in Gaeta and successively in different parts of Central and Southern Italy. Pizza was mainly eaten in Italy and by emigrants from there.
Pizza is a savory dish of Italian origin, consisting of a usually round, flattened base of leavened wheat-based dough topped with tomatoes, cheese, and often various other ingredients baked at a high temperature, traditionally in a wood-fired oven. A small pizza is sometimes called a pizzetta.
Right when we take that first bite of warm pizza crust topped with tomato sauce and cheese, our taste buds are stimulated by glutamate, and so we're hooked and want more. Some common pizza toppings like mushrooms can even add more glutamate, enhancing the flavor.
Crust. The crust is the foundation of the entire pizza and is the most important part of the dish in many people's opinion. The manner in which the crust is made can affect everything else about the dish.
