Please watch for the next newsletter that's coming out in a few days which will include an updated calendar with additional themes.

The theme for Cook with Us #16:

Pizza

No Mystery Theme this Week

Pizza is without a doubt the world’s most favorite food. While people have been eating flatbread with toppings since ancient times, it was not until the tomato made its way from the Americas to Italy that something resembling what we consider pizza today was invented. Although it did take a few hundred years for the tomato to be accepted in Italy as a food. When it first arrived, people thought it was poisonous. The people of Naples, Italy are credited with creating the modern pizza with bread, tomatoes and cheese. Probably the most famous pizza of all time is the Margherita pizza created for Queen Margherita’s visit to Naples in 1889. The Margherita pizza is topped with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and basil. These ingredients are the same colors as the Italian flag. source
This week the Cook with Us team, @chefsteve, @pandamama and @offoodandart, would like to see your favorite pizza. Let us know any unique facts about how pizza is made in your part of the world. Also share with us how pizza is evolving where you live. Since there are so many variations of pizza there will not be a mystery theme this week.

The Cook with Us Calendar

You can plan ahead! Below is the Cook with Us Calendar. More themes to follow in the next few days.

Could you please add a proof photo? Once you do, your entry will be valid. The rules are on this post. Since the pizza may already be gone by now 😊, you can add a photo with your Steemit name, the date and a plate or pan that you used in one of the above photos. You just have to do it for your first entry. Once you have a proof photo, the next entries will not need it.
