800 Degrees Pizza

The original pizza was created in Naples, Italy over 200 years ago by bakers looking to feed the masses in a cost-effective and tasty manner. Using simple, readily available ingredients along with their own wood burning bread ovens, they changed our culinary world forever. Bakers took small pieces of dough, topped them with tomatoes grown on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, and sold them as a street snack. In 1889 cheese was added and pizza as we know it was born.
