Feelings of Pizza intimacy shared

Pizza is bliss or at least as close to as we can get to it while residing in physical bodies. It is eaten right out of our hands and enjoyed one heavenly bite after another. Pizza transports us to a place where only smell and taste matter. There is absolutely nothing in the world like pizza! Never will anything be so delicious as long as we have 10,000 taste buds on our tongues.

According to Wikipedia something like pizza existed during the Neolithic Age. It was cooked on hot rocks. In the 6th century Persian soldiers used their shields to bake flatbreads covered with olive oil. It was the Italians who perfected the pizza crust with their wood fire ovens, a process which continues today. And the crowning glory in the development of pizza was the addition of flavorful “toppings.” Now depending upon where you live (Naples, Chicago, New York, Sicily, Greece, California, Detroit or St. Louis) your pizza is prepared just the way you like it!

Adjustments are being made in the basic ingredients to suit needs of specific groups, as for those who cannot tolerate peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, fish or shellfish. And there are interesting substitutions for vegetarians and vegans. While the results of these adaptions may not tempt the taste buds of conventional pizza lovers, they allow more of us to share in the glorious pizza experience.
