Where did pizza get it’s start? During the late 1700s, the poor neighborhoods of Naples required an inexpensive meal that could be consumed quickly. Flatbreads and pizza met the needs of the working poor within this thriving waterfront city. Street vendors and informal restaurants covered their pies with what we refer to today as “toppings”. Carol Helstosky, author of “Pizza: A Global History” and associate professor of history at the University of Denver, noted that “Judgmental Italian authors often called their eating habits ‘disgusting,’” These early “disgusting” pizzas consumed by Naples’ poor featured flavors that we now crave today, such as tomatoes, cheese, oil, anchovies and garlic.
