The present interactive Doodle celebrates one of the world’s most well known dishes—pizza! On this day in 2007, the culinary craft of Neapolitan “Pizzaiuolo” was inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
This pizza puzzle game elements a couple of the most beloved pizza fixings from everywhere the world and provokes you to cut dependent on the sort of pizza requested. Yet, watch out for the mentioned toppings and number of cuts—the more exact the request, the more stars you earn!
Although flatbread with toppings has been devoured for a really long time in ancient civilizations from Egypt to Rome, the southwestern Italian city of Naples is generally credited as the origin of the pizza known today (mixture layered with tomatoes and cheese) in the last part of the 1700s.
It’s here that the story of pizza starts: one that is prepared along with hundreds of years of worldwide migration, economic development, and technological evolution.
Today, an expected five billion pizzas (350 cuts each second in the U.S. alone) are consumed internationally every year. Regardless of your point of view, pizza is here to stay!
