April 5th National Deep-Dish Pizza Day

It was probably not the Italians that invented the pizza. History shows us it was the Greeks, actually Greek soldiers. Byzantine Greek’s calls pizza, “nita”, meaning “pie. The Romans added Bay Leaves and certainly advanced the world’s knowledge of pizza.

Though it probably was here in America before 1905, the first official pizza was sold that year. Since then (According to 1997 statistics) 2 billion pounds of pizza are made a year.

How to celebrate – Have a pizza. Create your own style of pizza. Re-enact being a Greek soldier.
