Join us for a slice of fun and mark your calendars for National Pizza Day February 9th!

Let’s start from scratch…

Pizza has a long history. Flatbreads with toppings were consumed by the ancient EgyptiansRomans and Greeks. (The latter ate a version with herbs and oil, similar to today’s focaccia.) But the modern birthplace of pizza is southwestern Italy's Campania region, home to the city of Naples.
