When & Who Invented Pizza History
Pizza is the world's #1 cheap food. We eat it all over the place - at home, in cafés, on traffic intersections.
Historians believe the word pizza originated from Italian and Greek literature.
A Latin document written in a small Italian village might be the earliest reference to pizza.
in the 1st Century B.C., a Roman poet is found to have talked about circles of bread thought to look like a pizza.
in the 18th century, pizza would be born in Naples, a town in Italy. The pizza was not the delicacy it is now.
Naples’s people ate pizza, which was just a flatbread with toppings, because it was cheap. Why? They were poor, and this was all they could afford.
