thousand years ago, people ate only raw wheat germ. Eventually
they crushed it and added water. This mixture was then
cooked on burning stones. Evolution then brought us to
Egypt, the cradle of civilization, where the first conical
oven was invented, and thus the technique of rising dough.
Virgil tells us that the Romans introduced the
moretum, an ancient form of modern pizza. It was
a mixture of bread without yeast, soaked in oil and eaten
with raw onions or garlic.
At the start of the Middle Ages, the word picea appeared
in Italy, which later became pizza. But we had
to wait until the 17th century to taste pizza as we know
it today. Indeed, in this era the native tomato from America
appeared on European plates. From Napoli, the commercialization
of prepared pizza with different combinations of toppings
such as mozzarella cheese, artichokes and other condiments
progressed gradually across Europe.
In 1830, Port d'Alba was created, the first Napolitan
pizzeria using brick ovens. Here at Egyptian
Pizza, we perpetuate this tradition. Taste and
