"National Pizza Day is dedicated to appreciating pizza, a baked flatbread that is topped with tomato sauce and cheese. Many toppings and sauces can be added to pizzas, including vegetables, meats and seafood. Pizza was invented in Naples, Italy around the 10th century, and has since grown to become one of the most popular foods in America."I think I first tasted pizza in 1956 on a date with a guy from Oregon, IL named Leonard with an Italian last name who played trombone. I thought it was so awful I think I only ate one or two pieces, and that was just to impress him. Tried it again in college, and then gradually developed a taste. Like for dinner tonight.
