Today, February 9th is World Pizza Day.
Pizza was first invented in Naples, Italy as a fast, affordable, tasty meal for working-class Neapolitans on the go. However, pizza actually didn’t gain mass appeal until the 1940s, when immigrating Italians brought their classic slices to the United States.
Pizza is now a popular food enjoyed and eaten in many parts of the world.
