The Ancient Greeks covered their bread with oils, herbs, and cheese. The Romans developed placenta, a sheet of flour topped with cheese and honey and flavored with bay leaves. Finally, modern pizza as we know it, originated in Italy as the Neapolitan pie with tomato. Cheese was added in 1889.

Pizza Trimming Tips: Choose thin-crust instead of thick-crust pizza. Ask for less cheese, and choose low-fat toppings such as onions, mushrooms, green peppers, tomatoes, and other vegetables.

Onto our pleasing pasta recipes!
