Pizza is a baked pie of Italian origin consisting of a shallow bread-like crust covered with seasoned tomato sauce (Pizza sauce), cheese, and often other toppings such as sausage or olive. The word pizza is believed to be from an Old Italian word meaning "a point".

       Pizza is an oven-baked, flat, round bread typically topped with a tomato sauce (Pizza sauce), cheese and various toppings. The modern pizza was invented in Naples, Italy, and the dish has since become popular in many parts of the world.
