is a dish made with bread as the base and is usually flat and baked in an oven. It is typically topped with a tomato sauce, cheese and various toppings, but can also be made with olive oil or white sauce in place of tomato sauce.
Originating in Italy, from the Neapolitan cuisine, the dish has become popular in many parts of the world. An establishment that makes and sells pizzas is called a “pizzeria”. Pizza is one of the national foods of Italy and the Italian people.
