Pizza nutrition fact — when you eat a serving of pizza, it provides roughly 27% of the total energy you use on the day you eat it. Of the more than 5 billion pizzas sold worldwide, approximately 3 billion are sold in the US each year — that’s 46 slices a year per person.
The First Pizza Is Thought to Be Invented in Naples During the Early 1500s Naples, Italy. Historians from the William E. Macaulay Honors College discovered that the poorer people of Naples would put slices of tomatoes on dough and top it with cheese to make a cheap and easy meal for their families. According to the researchers, tomatoes were thought to be poisonous during these days, which is why they were considered a cheaper food.
