Before presenting our selection of 10 good pizzerias in Palma, let’s briefly review the origin of pizza.
Pizza has always been one of the most popular and popular dishes in the Mediterranean diet. A pleasure for the senses. Much has been said about its uncertain origin; Some historians assure that already at the time of the splendor of the Greek civilization, a kind of bread crushed with various spices, onions, garlic and cheese was served, although it was not exactly a pizza, but an antecedent.
Pizza as we know it today originates from the city of Naples in Italy, popularized by the humble classes from the 17th century. It was a cheap, relatively simple dish to make based on bread dough, oil, a homemade tomato sauce and cheese on top. Originally it had no more ingredients, although over the centuries these appeared, giving it flavor, texture and variety.
It was with Italian immigration, at the beginning of the 20th century, that pizza spread and reached other parts of the world. It became enormously popular in the United States, where the first fast pizza franchises appeared and spread throughout its territory.
Today, pizza is an indispensable dish due to its many benefits and its unique flavor. We can find a good number of pizzerias in Palma with a great variety of styles and specialties.
