It’s National Pizza Party Day!

The history of pizza began long ago, when various ancient cultures produced flatbreads with toppings. The word pizza was first documented in AD 997 in Gaeta and in different parts of Central and Southern Italy. The precursor of pizza was probably the focaccia, a flatbread known to the Romans as panis focacius. Modern pizza developed in Naples, when tomato was added to the focaccia.

Since its Friday you have another reason not to cook, and go get a pizza! Celebrate Pizza Party Day by inviting friends and family to share a pizza pie tonight at your local pizzeria.   Other ways you can celebrate is by making homemade pizza with fresh toppings or by having one delivered to your home.
