Google Doodle today: Know history of pizza and celebrate the dish with pizza puzzle game


Google's interactive Doodle today celebrates pizza, one of the most popular dishes in the world! It was on this day in 2007 that the culinary art of Neapolitan “Pizzaiuolo” was inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, “the art of the Neapolitan ‘Pizzaiuolo’ is a culinary practice comprising four different phases relating to the preparation of the dough and its baking in a wood-fired oven, involving a rotatory movement by the baker.”

Pizza puzzle game

A few of the most beloved pizza toppings are featured in the pizza-themed puzzle game, which challenges you to slice your pizza based on the type that was ordered. But pay close attention to the toppings and number of slices -the more accurate the order, the more stars you'll get! 

While flatbread with toppings has been consumed for centuries in ancient civilisations from Egypt to Rome, the southwestern Italian city of Naples is generally credited as the birthplace of the pizza we know today (dough layered with tomatoes and cheese). The story of pizza begins here: a story that has developed over the centuries as a result of global migration, economic development, and technological advancement. 

Internationally, approximately five billion pizzas are consumed each year (350 slices every second in the United States).
