Pizza Around The World

Pizza has become an worldwide phenomenon in that wherever you go on earth there will be pizza. Pizza was adapted to more cultures and restaurants compared to most other dishes around the world. When some local school children were asked where pizza originally came from, they thought it was out of the region where they lived. And rightly so, because pizza has been adapted to whatever area from the world you reside. Barring that thought, pizza has an intriguing history and that starts in Greece, contrary to what most people probably think and that could be Italy.

There are conflicting tales revolving around the origin of pizza; one narrative is that the phrase 'Pizza' is derived from the Greek phrase Picea. Picea is an adjective that refers to the black coating left on the base of dough from the burning ashes which were used in ancient ovens. The very first pizzas were probably baked in wood burning stoves and may well happen to be black on the bottom from the ash. Another story is that the Greek Flatbread was baked in an earthenware platter and was called piada. Whichever is true, pizza did arise in Greece although not in the form we know it now. The Italians are responsible for the modern creation of pizza and that are the flatbread with a tomato topping, cheese and of course anything else you'd like to put on it.

When we were at Venice, Italy, the pizza that was served to us was a personal dimensions and was very sparse. It wasn't sliced since it was meant to be wrapped up like a burrito and eaten that way. The opposite was true of pizza offered on the street carts and was not really pizza but foccacia that had pizza toppings onto it. These were offered in little parts that could be eaten out of hand.

In Holland, we purchased that an everything pizza and contrary to the way it's made in the United States, each segment had a different topping. We had been used to the 'everything' pizza that had everything scattered throughout so that everyone could have a taste of everything. In this case, you could only have the toppings which were about the slices you picked.

When we had been In Japan, Pizza Hut offered a California Pizza which was a baked pizza shell topped with shredded lettuce and tomato. From what I understand, the California Pizza that's sold today has a variety of fish and seafood like tuna, squid and shrimp and seaweed! If you get on the internet and search pizza in Japan that you will find all kinds of interesting combinations!

Pizza at the United States has taken on all forms and can be tasty on all counts. Previously, the thick crusted pizza that took half an hour to bake was very common. Thin crusted pizzas have taken their location and sport all kinds of toppings. Let us start with the fundamental pizza which will be merely with a tomato topping, cheese and also probably pepperoni if you are so inclined. I like my pizza with lots of vegetables like bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and olives.

Popular types of pizza are: Hawaiian, Mexican, Southwest Barbecued Chicken and among my favorites, Chinese Barbecued Duck Pizza. The Hawaiian Pizza as featured in most restaurants is created with Canadian bacon (Portuguese Sausage are more like it) and Pineapple along with the cheese and tomato. Southwest BBQ Chicken Pizza includes a topping much like BBQ Sauce along with the chicken, red bell peppers and red onions and maybe cilantro and of course cheese. Chinese BBQ Duck Pizza uses Hoisin sauce rather than tomatoes and does have cheese, which isn't a frequent item in the Chinese diet.

Along with flat pizzas there is calzone which got its name from the form of the bottom of men's trousers in Naples, Italy during another century. Today you can find pizza bagels, pizza dogs, stuffed pizza and on and on and on. Pizza is a close rival of this All-American Hamburger and might have surpassed the burger as everyone's favorite. Whichever you like your pizza, simply like it and if you are in the mood, try different styles, just for the pleasure of it.
