It can be said that its history is as old as the church, too, because the first documentation of pizza went as far back as 997 AD in the Italian town of Gaeta, where it is said that a bishop required a tenant to give him “duodecim pizza” or 12 pizzas every Christmas day and another 12 every Easter Sunday.
