Imagine a world without pizza… unspeakable! Pizza has been around since the Neolithic Era, aka the New Stone Age. That’s right, the very first pizzas were made in a stone oven, shocked? Can’t you just imagine Neanderthals sitting around a bunch of rocks, kicking it back with the birds, eating a slice of pizza? What a sight that would be. They certainly wouldn’t be eating the best pizza OKC has to offer.

The evolution of pizza has come a long way, starting out as a simple flatbread that the ancient Egyptians used to flavor with fat, oil, or herbs, then migrating to Naples, Italy where it really became what we know today as pizza. Naples took the flatbread idea that the Egyptians came up with and ran with it, adding cheese and other gateway ingredients to experiment with. 

Something that we love about pizza is that it is always changing depending on where you are and what time period it is. For example, the original ingredients of pizza didn’t include pineapple, pepperoni, or even tomato sauce. But now there is a world-wide debate on whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza – spoiler alert, it does.
