Its a great post for Pizza lovers...Thanks for such great informational post. Amazing to listen how Pizza evolved, what all changes came up right from the base of Pizza  till the box in which it is being delivered.

800 degrees in 2 minutes?  Doesn't this fall under the faulty "oven logic"?

I am surprised that the invention of stuffed crust pizza wasn't mentioned. It was so popular in the 90s there was even a brief reference to it on an episode of Seinfeld.

If there's a food-of-the-gods single menu item, it has to be pizza. Mouth sex.

I was driving cross country one time and decided to stop at a local pizza joint. When I asked for pineapple as one of the toppings, you could literally see them stand there stunned. It was just totally outside their box. 

I had been living in the Pacific NW a number of years then, circa 1994. On the west coast pineapple was a given, but middle America hadn't got the telegram yet. Although I did see catfish was being offered at a pizza joint in Texas. I think I'd have to hurt a person that put catfish on my pizza.

As a vegetarian, I won't indulge in many of what you will. But I can wish you well on your side of the creek.
