A Brief History of Pizza
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Pizza is popular. It's usually round but can be made into other shapes. It's often made with tomato sauce but can be made without. It often has melted cheese; it can be made with none. While often made for dinner, pizzas can also be made for breakfast or dessert.
 
2     Pizza may have begun as food for Italy's poor. They took flat bread and topped it with olive oil, tomatoes, and cheese. In 1889, a pizza was made that was fit for a king! It was made using items in the colors of the Italian flag. Tomatoes made red, the cheese was white, and fresh basil added some green. An Italian baker made this pizza for the king and queen of Italy. Pizza wasn't just for peasants anymore!
