TROPICAL PIZZA: DOUGH & TOPPING / +VEGAN VERSION (OCTOBER MENU)


WIKI NOTE:  The ancient Greeks covered their bread with oils, herbs and cheese. Modern pizza evolved from similar flatbread dishes in Naples, Italy in the 18th or early 19th century. The term "pizza" first appeared "in a Latin text from the southern Italian town of Gaeta in 997 AD, which states that a tenant of certain property is to give the bishop of Gaeta duodecim pizze ("twelve pizzas") every Christmas Day, and another twelve every Easter Sunday".
*National Pizza Month is an observance that occurs for the month of October every year in the United States and some areas of Canada.This observance began in October 1984, and was created by Gerry Durnell, the publisher of Pizza Today magazine.
