NATIONAL CHEESE PIZZA DAY

On September 5th, one of the most popular varieties of pizzas gets its day of honor.  Hold the toppings, please. It’s National Cheese Pizza Day!

  • In ancient Greece, the Greeks covered their bread with oils, herbs, and cheese which some believe is the beginning of the “pizza”.

  • In Byzantine Greek, the word was spelled “πίτα”, pita, meaning pie. 

  • A sheet of dough topped with cheese and honey, then flavored with bay leaves was developed by the Romans.

  • The modern pizza had its beginning in Italy as the Neapolitan flatbread.

  • The original pizza used only mozzarella cheese, mainly the highest quality buffalo mozzarella variant which was produced in the surroundings of Naples.

  • It was estimated that the annual production of pizza cheese in the United States in 1997 was 2 billion pounds.
