Pizza is loved by foodies worldwide. And with so many different varieties, toppings and flavors, there really is a pizza for every situation. And since October is the National Pizza Month, what better time is there to take the family to somewhere like Jimmy’s Pizzeria in Parsippany for a beautiful meal out? Before you do though, make sure you know the facts about the cheesy and delicious invention. Here are some of the common myths.
1)Myth: Italians are solely responsible for creating pizza. Truth: The tomato saucy, cheesy pizza pies as we know them today do have their roots in Naples, but the ancient Greeks are credited with making pizza-like dishes before that.
2)Myth: You can always count on pizza to be relatively cheap. Truth: There’s actually one pizza that costs $1,000 in New York City and it includes caviar and lobster
3)Myth: Most pizzas are ordered with plain cheese. Truth: According to a data compiled by food delivery service Foodler in 2013, more people order pizza with toppings than just cheese.
4)Myth: Pepperoni is one of Italy’s greatest contributions to pizza. Truth: Pepperoni is an Italian-American creation. In Italian, the word “peperoni” actually means “large peppers” (as in bell peppers).
5)Myth: Pizza should only be reheated in the microwave or oven. Truth: They are great options, but so is the grill.
