Originating in Naples during the 1700s, the pizza started as the humble worker’s meal. Easy to make, easy to eat, the early pizzas were made from flatbread and loaded with various toppings (tomatoes, cheese, anchovies, etc.) and were meant to be consumed quickly. But pizza didn’t become popular until immigrants from Naples moved to the United States in the early 20th century and started making pizzas over there.
Once non-Neapolitans in America discovered how tasty pizza could be, the demand grew. The real tipping point was post-World War II- all things American became popular around the world and, along with blue denim jeans and rock-and-roll music, pizza was one of them. As their popularity grew, different countries began modifying pizza toppings to suit local palettes. Each pizza has its own unique taste and flavour, and no more so than the Yara Pizza you will find at Yara Galle Fort.
