Pizza Facts!

Pizza, in its most basic form, is a seasoned flatbread and has a long history rooted in the Mediterranean. Several cultures including the Greeks and Phoenicians ate a flatbread made from flour and water. The dough would be cooked by placing on a hot stone and then seasoned with herbs.

The Greeks called this early pizza ‘Plankuntos’ and it was basically used as an edible plate when eating stews or thick broth. It was not yet what we would call pizza today but it was very much like modern ‘Focaccia’.

These early pizzas were eaten from Ancient Rome toEgyptandBabylon!
