So, you think that pizza comes from Italy? No, it doesn’t come from Italy. It is Italian national food. But pizza comes from all places. The pizza bread comes from old Greeks. Tomatoes (they must be on pizza now) come from America. Cheese is made in all places.

Italian people with little money made and ate pizza in the streets. In 1889, Queen Margherita saw it. She wanted to eat pizza. She liked it very much. Her cook started to make pizza for her. He made pizza with tomatoes, cheese and something green. The name of this pizza was Pizza Margherita. Today it’s very popular pizza. People from Italy took pizza to other European countries and America.

Now pizza is a very successful business. You can see pizzerias in all towns. Of course, we have many types of pizza. Japanese is with mayonnaise. In Mexico they have pizza with chilli. Pizza can be vegetarian or with meat. You can put what you want on pizza.

With this video you can make your pizza!
