Main article: History of pizza

Pizza (Italian pronunciation: [ˈpittsa], from the Latin verb pìnsereto press and from the Greek pēktos, πηκτός, meaning “solid” or “clotted”) is Greek in origin (see also pitta). The ancient Greeks covered their bread with oilsherbs and cheese. In Byzantine Greek, the word was spelled πίταpita, or πίτταpitta, meaning pie. The word has also spread to Turkish as pide,[2] and BulgarianCroatian and Serbian aspitaAlbanian as pite and Modern Hebrew pittāh.[3] The Romans developed placenta, a sheet of dough topped with cheese and honey and flavored with bay leaves.

Modern pizza originated in Italy as the Neapolitan flatbread.

A popular urban legend holds that the archetypal pizza, Pizza Margherita, was invented in 1889, when the Royal Palace of Capodimonte commissioned the Neapolitan pizzaiolo Raffaele Esposito to create a pizza in honor of the visiting Queen Margherita. Of the three different pizzas he created, the Queen strongly preferred a pie swathed in the colors of the Italian flag: red (tomato), green (basil), and white (mozzarella). Supposedly, this kind of pizza was then named after the Queen as Pizza Margherita,[4] though recent research disproves this legend.[5]
