Pizza has had a presesnce around the globe since its estimated first creation in 997 AD. While cheese and tomatoes didn't come until quite some time later, it's no surprise that anything which includes hot, fresh baked dough might be a popular staple for centuries as this mealtime favorite has been. It's also a very easy dish to do -- and do well -- at home, no pizzeria skills required. In fact, plenty of companies offer a range of pre-made crusts, either fresh or frozen, to get the same experience in your own kitchen. All it takes are a few ingredients and you're good to go. Classics like tomato sauce and cheese, along with sausage or veggies, brings the traditioanl fare but you can equally get creative with virtually any kind of sauce, toppings, etc. ala gourmet style.
