It’s National Pizza with Everything (Except Anchovies) Day! Today is the official day to order your pizza with the works (anchovies not required). Pizza is a direct descendant of the flatbread people made before the advent of the oven. Neolithic humans would build a fire on a flat rock to create a hearth. When it was piping hot, they brushed away the coals and laid a layer of dough across it. The baked bread was then topped with seeds or spices.
National Pizza With Everything (Except Anchovies) Day celebrates all of the different toppings you can put on your pizza to suit your tastes and preferences. Although having fish on a pizza isn't the worst thing in the world, the saltiness of the anchovies can mask all of the other delicious flavors. Order your pizza today with all of your favorite toppings, but keep it anchovy-free!
