Grains and Barley

They were looking for grains and barley that would then be soaked and boiled, mashed and finally cooked on hot stones. Perhaps not as refined as the thin crust gourmet pizza Toronto that we offer today in a variety of our locations, but we think everyone will agree that was a good start.

One of the other nationalities that’s well known for their love of food, The Greeks, also left their mark on pizza during their time on the Italian peninsula. They went a step further than anyone had before by placing the mash created with wheat and barley on dough before cooking. These are the ingenious folks that also started using the predecessors to the ovens we see today.
