Was pizza always made the way it is now? Not exactly. In fact, pizza started out as a flatbread in Ancient Greece! This is just the beginning of the enormously entertaining story, "The Incredible Moments of Pizza," the first book in the non-fiction children's picture book series, The Incredible Moments of Food.
In 1933, a pizzeria in NYC started selling pizza in slices rather than pies. In 2001, Pizza Hut sent the first pizza delivery to outer space. Pizza is even served in a restaurant in Antarctica! Each spread in this delicious title travels through pizza's historic journey with vivid and playful illustrations by artist Chanamon Ratanalert.
This fun, informative children's book includes details even diehard pizza lovers, young or old, may not know. In the Italian city of Naples, chefs were the first to top their flatbreads with cheese and tomatoes—although many people at that time believed that tomatoes were dangerous to eat!
Author Michelle H. Kung expertly weaves storytelling with interesting information to create a wonderful debut book to this new edutainment series for children. This book will grab a "pizza your heart" each time you read it!
