As you can probably guess from the title this blog is all about pizza! From where pizza came from, to fun facts you may not have known about this circle shaped food. It’s important to know that National Pizza day is on November 12th. Without further ado let’s get into it.
While there are many theories on where pizza originated from, but most sources think it came from a form of flatbread making its way to Italy in the 18th century. These early flat bread originally had oil, herbs, spices and dates on them but they were changed in Italy when tomatoes and other toppings were introduced into the mix making them into the pizza we know today and if it wasn’t for Queen Margherita wanting something new and throwing pizza into the limelight it wouldn’t have become as popular as it did to move around the world. Fun fact the margherita pizza was named after the queen.
Pizza finally made it across the ocean to America in the early 19th century with immigrants from Italian who came to America looking for a new life. In 1905 the first license to sell and make pizza in Amercia was issued to Gennaro Lombardi of New York. Gennaro first started serving pizza out of his grocery store on Spring Street and then would expand into other Pizzerias ranging from New Jersey all the way to California. While these aren’t all the details about how pizza became a favorite dish among the world but this is how people came to know of pizza and how pizzerias spread throughout the United States.
Finally some fun facts about Pizza! For starters there’s actually two National Pizza Days in America, one celebrating pizzas with everything on them but anchovies and the other is pizza with everything on them. In America we eat about 100 acers of pizza a day or 350 slices a sec, now that’s a lot of pizza! In total around 3 billion pizzas are sold a year in America alone!
We’ve gone over how pizza may have been created and how it made its way to America, we’ve even learned what one of the first types of recorded pizzas were and who held the first license to sell pizza in America. Finally you found out just how much pizza we actually eat in America, which is a colossal amount! Now hopefully you have a deeper appreciation of pizza after all those facts!
We are just past one month into Fall Semester. Can you believe it? We hope that you are all enjoying your time at the Catalyst! We know we sure are! We have had a few resident events lately and we are very excited to see all of your faces in our clubhouse.
Catalyst held its first ever Waffle Wednesday. We got some waffle makers and some waffle batter and we put the word out to ya’ll. And you guys definitely showed up. It was a huge success. We normally run those events until supplies last but people just kept showing up so we ran out and got more waffle batter! If you guys are into it, we will certainly be having more Waffle Wednesdays in the future.
We also had our Annual Parent’s Weekend Brunch! You got to hang out all weekend with Mom and Dad. Going to all sorts or family friendly events throughout the weekend. And we were lucky in that you spent Sunday morning hanging out with us in the clubhouse. We had different platters catered by Uptown Café. The platters included a yummy Veggie Strata and a scrumptious Meat Lovers Strata. They also provided fruit plates and pastry plates. We want to thank everyone who stopped by to make the annual event a continued success.
We’ve got a few more resident events planned for October including the return of the beloved Waffle Wednesday. We’re thinking of throwing a Taco Tuesday in the mix. If you have any alliterative suggestions feel free to let us know gown in the office. We hope that you all enjoy them as much as we love putting them on!
