Little known fact... Russians are pizza crazy! Long ago, Italian cuisine was introduced by Pisan merchants around the Black Sea and Sea of Azov trading ports. Later, such regions received new Italian emigrants who left Italy to escape facism during WW2. Many pizzerias became established and are as prevalent as they are in the US. Such pizzerias commonly offer 'traditional-style' pizza, though there are strange hybrid forms: "Caviar/Sour Cream Pizza", and the popular "German Pizza?". Yet despite the great availability, some Russians just can't get enough!

this is cool; thanks for sharing it..

I heard that when Italian immigrants first brought pizza to the US, their pizzas were cheese-less.. it was an American innovation to add cheese as a base ingredient. Not sure if that's true or not tho' (?)

Not so.

The History of Pizza and Pizza Delivery

excerpts:

A description of pizza in Naples around 1830 is given by the French writer and food expert Alexandre Dumas, père in his work Le Corricolo, Chapter VIII.[6] He writes that pizza was the only food of the humble people in Naples during winter and that "in Naples pizza is flavored with oil, lard, tallow, cheese, tomato, or anchovies."


The Queen's favorite was a pizza evoking the colors of the Italian flag — green (basil leaves), white (mozzarella), and red (tomatoes).[1] This combination was named Pizza Margherita in her honor.
