To celebrate the start of the weekend there is nothing better than a delicious, freshly made pizza with a cold glass of Cornish Orchards cider in the Summer or maybe a warming glass of red in the Winter months! That's why Friday night is pizza night here at Bellamama Deli!
Handmade by us and using fresh ingredients from our deli counter, our pizzas have become legendary.
Pizza, like so many other foods did not originate in the country for which it is famous, Italy, but from Greece, where they were baked as round flat breads 'annointed with oil, herbs, spices and dates'. Eventually, the idea of flat breads found it's way to Italy, where pizzas were enjoyed 'au natural' with no topping. They were sold to the poor all over Naples. The acceptance of the tomato by the Neopolitans and the fact that Queen Margherita loved this peasant food, made it more popular and variations began to be made in different regions. Pizza was little known in America, England, France and Spain till after World War 2, when returning soliders sought out the dish from Italian neighbourhoods.
