Perhaps one of the most popular and versatile meals of all time, pizza was originally of Italian origin, but has since spread all over the world. In North America, it has become an absolute staple, with approximately 3 billion pizzas sold every year in the United States alone.
Just about everyone knows what pizza is, but there are many different kinds of pizza. The only permanent ingredient of pizza is the dough, cooked like a flatbread, the rest is up to the consumer. Conventionally, tomato sauce is spread across the dough, followed by cheese, and then toppings such as meats and vegetables. When you go to a pizza place, it’s pretty likely that they’ll have at least a few of the most popular types of pizza, such as ham and pineapple, deluxe, and the classic pepperoni, but many pizza places have created some pretty inventive alternatives as well.
For aspiring pizzaioli (a fancy Italian word for pizza makers), the only limit is imagination. Alfredo sauce, ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, and many other kinds of sauces can all be used as substitutes for the traditional tomato. Cover with your favorite kind of cheese and assorted toppings and voila, your very own custom pizza.
