Happy Feb. 9! Pizza Day!
It seems like everyday is pizza day because it's so popular, but Feb. 9 is Pizza Day! Below are a couple of pizzas to celebrate Pizza Day! Check out the individual posts! :)
Here are some facts about pizza:
Pizza has been around since the Neolithic ages and "the word pizza was first documented in A.D. 997 in Gaeta".
"Some 3 billion pizzas are sold each year in the U.S. alone, an average of 46 slices per person."
Over 5 billion pizzas are sold worldwide each year.
** Does this mean that the U.S. alone is responsible for 60% of the world's consumption of pizza each year? Haha. :)
Here is a great infographic on Pizza History from Trip Savvy website.
Bacon, Onion, Pesto Pizza
This one was inspired by a recipe from Alex Guarnaschelli on the Food Network:
Flatbread With Bacon and Scallion Pesto. I made a modified version with what I had at my place. I liked the flavor combinations. I made it with pre-made pizza crust, so I guess it's a pizza (not a flatbread). :)
Here is a link with more info on the definition of pizza vs. flatbreads. I guess thin crust pizzas should really be called flatbreads. :)
Oops, I ate a bit before I took the photo. :)
Keto/Low-Carb Pepperoni Pizza
It's pizza without any carbs!
