Food Favourites – Pizza Party

I’m a foodie. That’s no surprise. I enjoy food. Eating it is especially a favourite thing of mine to do. These days there are so many varieties and choices with food, it’s interesting to explore our tastes. Food means different things to each of us. We all have foods we like and don’t like. We have tastes and flavours that bring us home or evoke a memory.

Within each type of food, like pizza, there are so many variations and flavours. So here’s a little about pizza.

Pizza Man

We know Pizza to be Italian and its origins stem back to 18th century Naples when tomatoes first came to Europe. Those less fortunate started adding tomatoes to “flat” bread. Although it was once thought that tomatoes were poisonous. Nevertheless, it was a very cheap dish to make.

Pizza was first sold in streets stalls and open air markets. Raffeale Esposito, was a Neapolitan pizzamaker who created the Margherita pizza for Queen Margherita. It contained tomatoes, basil and mozzarella cheese, these flavours resembling the colours of the Italian flag.

Nowdays, pizza is a favoured part of the western diet and is found in many countries around the world. There are so many different types from classic to those influenced by other cuisines. There are chains dedicated to pizza such as Dominoes, Pizza Hut, Eagle Boys, Round Table, Crust and of course, the local pizza place which is loved by all in the family.


What’s your favourite type of pizza? Where do you buy your pizza?
