Transcript of The Pizza Prezi

Foods similar to pizza have been prepared throughout the ages. Records of people adding other ingredients to bread to make it more flavorful can be found all through ancient history.

The Ancient Greeks had a flat bread called plakous, which was flavored with toppings like herbs, onion, and garlic. The term "pizza" first appeared in a Latin text from the southern Italian town of Gaeta in 997 AD, which claims that a tenant of certain property is to give the bishop of Gaeta twelve pizzas every Christmas Day, and another twelve every Easter Sunday. The History of Pizza The innovation that gave us the flat bread we call pizza was the use of tomato as a topping. For a long time after the tomato was brought to Europe from the Americas in the 1500s, most Europeans thought it was poisonous! However, by the late 18th century, it was common for the poor of the area around Naples to add tomato to their yeast-based flat bread, and so the pizza began. Pizza first made its appearance in the United States with the arrival of Italian immigrants in the late 19th century. This was certainly the case in cities with large Italian populations, such as New York City, Chicago, and Philadelphia, where pizza was first sold on the streets of Italian neighborhoods. Pizza is now a type of bread and tomato dish, often served with cheese. However, until the late 19th or early 20th century, the dish was sweet, not savory, and earlier versions which were savory more resembled the flat breads now known as schiacciata. In the late 19th century, for example, pizza was introduced by peddlers who walked up and down the streets with a metal washtub of pizzas on their heads, selling their wares at two cents a chew. This was the way pizza used to be sold in Naples, in copper cylindrical drums with false bottoms that were packed with charcoal from the oven to keep the pizzas hot.
