Salute To Sausage Pizza

In days of ancient Greece the Greeks would secure their bread with oils, herbs and cheddar cheese. This may have very well been the start of the pizza pie. The Romans had a similar dish where sheet of batter was topped with cheddar and nectar. 

The Italian "Pizza" started out in Italy using Neapolitan flatbread. Mozzarella cheddar topped the early "pizzas" 
It was not until 1905 when pizza reached the United States. It was in New York in a part of the city known as "Little Italy". It was not long until pizza became one of America's most loved suppers. It did not much matter how the pizza was made. Thin, hand hurled, thick outside layer or a profound dish they were all loved. Taste it with tasty Italian hot dogs (sausage) and tada the first sausage pizza.
