We've all heard the saying that any pizza is a good pizza, and if you ask me and my family that's absolutely true. I would eat cardboard if it were topped with pizza sauce, cheese, and meat!
Luckily for you, while I would eat bad pizza, I've never made a bad pizza. And I've been making pizza for years. I find that I tend to make certain pizzas more in the warm months, and others are made more often during the fall.
I've already shared a great list of summer pizza recipes with all of you. Now, I want to share my collection of fall pizza recipes. I tend to make all of these most often will fall rolls around, and once you try them, I know you will, too.
The History of Pizza
While pizza has been round for hundreds of years, the beginnings of pizza have been around for much, much longer.
People have been making flatbreads and adding toppings to them since ancient times. In fact, archaeologists have found evidence of flatbread with toppings that date back thousands of years.
Over those years, people began to experiment with different bread and topping variations, until eventually, the precursor of pizza, focaccia, was invented.
As focaccia is simply bread topped with tomatoes, cheese, and spices, it wasn't a big leap for someone to turn it into the first pizza.
That first pizza was made in Naples, Italy. Pizza actually began as a convenient, hand-held, affordable meal for the working class in Naples. They could simply buy a slice or two and continue on their way.
Interestingly, although pizza is practically a national dish in both America and Canada, it actually didn't gain popularity until Italian immigrants brought it with them to the United States in the 1940s, where it quickly skyrocketed in popularity.
What constitutes a pizza?
Traditional pizzas are very simple, while many modern-day twists on pizza boast tons of ingredients on all types of crusts. What makes them all pizzas, however, is three basic things.
A pizza is made up of three elements. All pizzas, no matter how they're topped or how the crust is prepared, feature a crust, sauce, and toppings.
The Evolution of Pizza
Traditional pizza exploded in popularity when it was introduced to the United States in the 1940s, but people weren't content to leave this delicious dish as-is. Over the years, pizza has changed drastically.
While many traditional Italian restaurants still keep the traditional crust and toppings of tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, there are many restaurants and pizza chains that have gotten quite creative with the dish.
You'll find pizzas made with traditional, thin, Chicago-style, Detroit-style, and even cauliflower crusts. Toppings are even more varied, featuring everything from pepperoni and sausage to ham and pineapple, fish, chicken, bacon, and much more.
