Uncovering the Origins of the Beloved Pizza

While pizza, as we know it today, is famously Italian, this saucy delight boasts a global history that has earned it a cherished spot on dinner tables worldwide. According to data from Canstar Blue, Pizza reigns supreme as Australia's favorite takeaway food, with a staggering 34% of Aussies declaring it their top choice. But how did this iconic dish come to be?

Tracing Back to the 1500s

Tomato Revolution: The pizza's journey is said to have begun in the 1500s when tomatoes, originally from Peru, were introduced to Italy. It didn't take long for this new fruit to become a staple in the Neapolitan diet, as they ingeniously adorned their dough with it. Crafted with pantry essentials like oil, cheese, and herbs, it was just as convenient and delicious then as it is now.
Early Innovation: While today's pizzas often feature inventive toppings on flatbreads or tortillas, this style of pizza was a hit even centuries ago. Italy's culinary pioneers showcased their innovative spirit, laying the foundation for the diverse world of pizza we adore today.

The Story of Margherita Pizza: From Italian Royalty to Aussie Favorite

The Margherita Pizza Saga

Step into the Delicious Past: In the 1800s, a culinary gem was born in Italy - the Margherita pizza. Legend has it that it was named after Queen Margherita, who adored the local bakers' pizza topped with mozzarella, fragrant basil, and vibrant tomatoes.
A Global Journey: Decades later, during World War II, this iconic pizza embarked on a journey that took it to England, France, Spain, and the Americas. It quickly won hearts wherever it went.
Aussie Pizza Love: But it wasn't until the swinging 1960s that Margherita pizza truly became an Aussie favorite. Today, it reigns supreme as the most beloved takeaway across the nation.
