Pizza really a
pie? Yes, Pizza in
Italian means pie.
the word "pizza" was first documented in 997
AD in Gaeta and successively in different
parts of Central and South Italy, the
history of the dish itself is not very clear
or well documented.
The precursor of pizza was probably the
focaccia, a flat bread known to the Romans
as "panis focacius", to which toppings
were then added.
