When was the last time you had a slice?
Did that first mouth-burning bite make you think about Italian unification in 1861? Or perhaps it made you think of the advance in flour milling technology throughout the 19th century. At the very least, you thought about how delicious, filling and cheap pizza remains as dietary staple around the world. But there's more to pizza than just cheese, sauce and crust. With all the authentic, famous, and original pizzerias around town, it's probably best to get your facts straight with an in-depth look at pizza from a historical-social-cultural-scientific-economic perspective.
This three-part course will follow pizza's evolution from its humble beginnings in Southern Italy to the port of New York City and beyond. We'll trace the historic factors that shaped all your favorite pizza styles and answer the questions you've always wanted to ask. And, yes, there will be pizza served at every class!
