Pizza oh pizza. Served on a red and white-squared table cloth to the melody of an Italian sonata, or next to a cold pitcher of beer, there is nothing like the aroma of a good pizza to awaken your appetite, a bite of it to comfort your soul and the possibility of toppings to bring out the artist in you. Ever since the modern pizza was invented in Napoli, Italy, many variants have been invented.
