Did you know February 9 is World Pizza Day? Or that the first pizza ever served in Poland was at a royal marriage in the early 16th century? Do you know where the name for pizza Margherita comes from? The origins of pizza go back all the way to ancient Greece, passing through Italy and then spreading all around Europe until finally reaching America, where it became a staple dish and where a slice was almost declared a veggie by the FDA.
