If there’s one food that can appeal to even the pickiest of eaters, it’s pizza. The harmonious, heavenly combination of bread topped with cheese, herbs, and sauce dates back to the ancient Greeks. Pizza, as we conceive of it today, was invented in Naples, Italy circa the late 18th/early 19th century. The delectable dish can now be found in countless countries across the globe and in manifold varieties. We’ve assembled four of our favorite recipes for your pleasure in this week’s recipe collection. Buon appetito!
