Spread the word.

Pizza is an Italian dish made up of a round, flattened base of leavened wheat-based dough topped with tomatoes, cheese, and often other ingredients (such as anchovies, mushrooms, onions, olives, pineapple, meat, and so on), and cooked at a high temperature, often in a wood-fired oven. Pizzetta is a term used to describe a tiny pizza. A pizzaiolo is a person who makes pizza.

Pizza is quite popular for a reason. Foods that are fatty, sweet, rich, and complex attract humans. All of these ingredients are easily found in pizza. The sauce is sweet, the cheese is fatty, and the meat toppings are usually rich. The compounds glutamate, which can be found in tomatoes, cheese, pepperoni, and sausage, are also plentiful in pizza toppings. When glutamate reaches our tongues, it signals our brains to become excited and crave more for it. This compound (glutamate) actually causes our mouths to water in anticipation of the next bite. Then there are the ingredient combinations. Cheese and tomato sauce are a match made in heaven. Culinary scientists claim that they contain flavor compounds that make them taste even better when eaten together.

Thin Crust:

Thin crust pizzas have a crispy edge and a slightly narrower center where the cheese, sauce, and other toppings are placed. To make this type of crust, stretch the dough out until it forms edges. However, keep in mind that this type of pizza can hold not much toppings.
