THE TRANSFORMATION OF ITALIAN PIZZA
Pizza is a savory dish with a commonly round and flat dough base, which is usually topped with tomatoes, cheese, and various other ingredients of one’s choice. The pizza was founded in Italy, with the term first recorded in the 10th century in Southern Italy. Italian pizza has transformed since then and especially the modern pizza we know of today was founded in Naples. Especially the classic Neapolitan Pizza Margherita, which consists simply of tomatoes and mozzarella cheese, can be perceived as the first modern pizza.
A traditional Italian pizza is baked in a wood-fired oven at a high temperature by a pizzaiolo – the term for the person who prepares the pizza. However, this type of preparation method can be seen as a luxury now that pizza has become a mainstream dish due to its enormous popularity worldwide. Pizza can be considered as the world’s most popular dish, and it has transformed from an authentic Italian delicacy to a common fast food item in Europe and North America. Nowadays, pizza can be enjoyed in Mediterranean restaurants and pizzerias, ordered home via pizza delivery, or even purchased in stores as a ready-baked frozen item.
