History of Pepperoni Pizza Day
Pizza is older than most people would imagine, stretching far back into ancient Sardinia. 7000 years past saw the origins of bread, the first ingredient necessary to creating pizza. From there flat breads became incredibly popular in cultures throughout the world, where they served as the basic staples for people everywhere, and were even baked on the back of shields by Persian armies. Ultimately, 2000 years ago, the first pizza resembling what we think of today was created by Roman Soldiers who added olive oil and cheese to Matzah bread.
However, the first time the word pizza came into use was in the 16th-Century, describing a food thought fit only for peasants. That was until 1889, when Raffaele Esposito presented the Queen consort of Italy a “Pizza Margherita”, flatbread topped with basil, mozzarella, and tomatoes, colors and flavors selected to represent the Italian Flag. After being served to nobility, the future of the pizza was set and it quickly became one of the most popular foods around the world. Pepperoni Pizza is the single most popular variety of pizza found on the streets of the world, most especially in America. Pepperoni Pizza Day celebrates the history of this pizza, and the best pizza of all time!
