What’s

On Your

Pizza?

Pizza Fact-a-Roonies

• In the late 1700s and early

1800s, pizza was the food of

the lazzaroni, or poor people,

in Naples, Italy. The flatbread,

topped with garlic, cheese,

tomatoes, oil and anchovies, was

cheap and easy to eat.

• As Italians began to move

to the U.S. for jobs, they brought

their favorite pizzas with them. The first

licensed pizzeria in the United States was G.

Lombardi’s in New York City, founded in 1905.

You can still eat at Lombardi’s today!

• Many Americans never tasted pizza until

decades later, especially after World War II,

when people began to move west in larger

numbers.

• On average, each American eats 46 slices

of pizza every year. And 350 slices are sold

every second!

• You can put just about anything on

a pizza. Some unusual toppings include

hardboiled eggs, figs,

buffalo meat, crab,

macaroni and cheese,

eel and crocodile meat.

People in different parts

of the world dress their

crusts with their favorite

foods.

Many people enjoy

fish on their pizza.

Polly: No! It’ll be too cheesy!

Are you going to a national or

state park this summer? These

areas are set up to protect nature and allow people to

enjoy it. Parks and reserves have rules to protect plants

and wildlife. Development is carefully controlled.

People are encouraged to leave their cars to reduce

pollution and explore by bus, by bike, on foot or on

horseback. No one is allowed to drop litter, pick plants

or disturb animals. “Take nothing but photos. Leave

nothing but footprints” is one of the mottos of the

conservation movement.
