Although we are all enamored of piling toppings onto our favorite pizzas, the simple cheese pizza is celebrated with National Cheese Pizza Day. It is estimated that there are more than 70,000 pizzerias across the United States, demonstrating how pizza has been adopted into the national psyche. Bizarrely, pizza especially a basic cheese pizza was regarded by its Italian inventors as food for the lower classes who could not afford the luxury of meats. The components are cheap, requiring just flour, yeast, and water to make a basic dough, with toppings often being picked from local trees and made from local milk.
“Everyone prefers some foods over others, but some adults take this tendency to an extreme. These people tend to prefer the kinds of bland food they may have enjoyed as children – such as plain or buttered pasta, macaroni and cheese, cheese pizza, French fries and grilled cheese sandwiches – and to restrict their eating to just a few dishes.” – Andrew Weil
Whether you’re a fan of a deep dish from Chicago or prefer the more authentic Italian thin base pizza, now you have an excuse to indulge. If you require to spoil yourself, head down to Pizza Luis XIII restaurant in Salerno, Italy, where the world’s most expensive pizza has been created costing $12,0000.
History of National Cheese Pizza Day
On September 5th, one of the most popular varieties of pizzas gets its day of honor. Hold the toppings, please. In ancient Greece, the Greeks closed their bread with oils, herbs, and cheese which some hope is the beginning of the “pizza.” In Byzantine Greek, the word was spelled “πίτα,” pita, meaning pie. The Romans developed a sheet of dough topped with cheese and honey, then flavored with bay leaves.
The fresh pizza had its beginning in Italy as the Neapolitan flatbread. The real pizza used only mozzarella cheese, mainly the highest quality buffalo mozzarella variant which was constructed in the surroundings of Naples. It was determined that the annual production of pizza cheese in the United States in 1997 was 2 billion pounds. The first United States pizza establishment opened in 1905 was in New York’s Little Italy. Pizza has become one of America’s favorite meals.
