Why Did You Choose the Name POFOKES Pizza?

I get asked this nearly every week.

The term 'pizza' first appeared "in a Latin text from the southern Italian town of Gaeta in 997 AD, which claims that a tenant of certain property is to give the bishop of Gaeta 'duodecim pizze', "twelve pizzas", every Christmas Day, and another twelve every Easter Sunday".

The 16th Century Naples' Pizza

In 16th century Naples a Galette flatbread was referred to as a pizza.  A dish of the poor people, it was sold in the street and was not considered a kitchen recipe for a long time.

Before the 17th century, the pizza was covered with red sauce.  This was later replaced by oil, tomatoes(after Europeans came into contact with the Americas) or fish. In 1843, Alexandre Dumas, père described the diversity of pizza toppings.
