The modern pizza originates in Italy. The classic Pizza Margherita was made with only three ingredients: tomato cause, mozzarella cheese, and basil. Today, hundreds of different pizza toppings are used, but classic cheese pizza is still extremely popular.
Mozzarella is not the only cheese that can be used as a pizza topping. Other popular pizza cheeses include Parmesan, cheddar, and provolone. Romano, Emmental, and ricotta can also be used. Mass-market pizzas are often made with less expensive processed cheeses. Processed pizza cheeses are required to melt well and remain chewy.
To celebrate the National Cheese Pizza Day, go out with your family and friends and feast on a cheese pizza. You can also order takeout or make your favorite pizza yourself. Let us learn how to make an easy cheese pizza.
