    How to make Pizza

    Pizza has a long history, far too long to cover here. Flatbreads with toppings were eaten by the ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks. Pizza is more iconically associated with the Italians.

    A precursor of pizza was probably the focaccia which was eaten by the Romans, who also added toppings to the flatbread.

    Today Pizza is eaten the world over, it can be bought in any one of the many dedicated Pizza restaurants, bought frozen or as in this recipe, homemade Pizza.
