Where did pizza come from? The pizza we know today was developed in the 19 th century. A chef called Raffaelle Esposito from Naples in Italy made a pizza for queen Margherita of Italy. It had tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and basil leaves to represent the Italian flag – red, white and green.
How is pizza made? You need: Dough, which is made from flour, yeast, salt and water. Tomato sauce made from tomatoes and olive oil. Mozzarella cheese which is made from cow’s or buffalo’s milk. Toppings like peppers, pineapple or olives.
Where do these ingredients come from? The flour might come from the wheat on a Co-operative Farm. Look at the map to find out where your nearest farm is. http://www.co-operative.coop/farms/where-we- farm/map/http://www.co-operative.coop/farms/where-we- farm/map/ Tomatoes like a warm climate, so they might come from Italy in winter and from the UK in summer. Mozzarella is a cheese from Italy, but some types are made in the UK. Peppers are usually grown abroad in warm countries like Italy and Spain, but can grow in the UK in the summer.
What other toppings could you have? Other cheeses like cheddar from the UK. Pineapple from Trinidad and Tobago (West Indies) and Cost Rica (Central America). Olives might come from Italy, Spain or Greece. Olives are also used to make olive oil. Spinach can come from the UK. Sweetcorn can also come from the UK.
