Italian food


Italian food is great and there’s so many good things to try. In fact Italian food is the best type of food because they have the best cuisine there and because the most popular food in Italy is pizza.


According to Tastingtable, these are some of the best foods that come from Italy. Number one is pizza. Pizza is a great food  that can have a lot of different ingredients like pineapple, olives, sausage etc. Every pizza maker in Italy has their own secret in making their pizza.  Pizza is also a national symbol that represents Italy.


Number two is pasta.  Pasta is also a great food from Italy. It’s also a food that you may have tried that can come in all different shapes and sizes plus it’s also good for you.


Number three is gnocchi. Gnocchi is a very famous food in Italy. They are small rounds of dough that can have different ingredients in them like spinach, eggs, cheese and sometimes a variety of sauces.


Number four is risotto. Risotto can be cooked in many different ways and is cooked slowly in broth. It has cheese which gives it flavor. 


Number five is arancini, which are balls of rice with cheese, meat, sauce and peas. They are breaded and then fried. It is a very famous treat in Italy.


Now I’m going to tell you about some facts about the foods in Italy. According to PBS, pasta was invented in China during the Shang dynasty (1700-1100 B.C.). Pasta was either made with rice flour or wheat and it was brought to Italy from China by Marco Polo.


According to Tasting Table, original pizza was created in southern Italy, in Naples. It was presented with the edge of the pizza being high and the center of it being lower, and is strictly baked in a wood-fired oven. It was first made at the end of the 18th century in honor of the queen of Italy passing away.


“Pizza is good as long as you don’t put in pineapple and I have never tried pasta but I have tried spaghetti, which is a type of pasta and it’s good because it can have meatballs and I like meatballs,” said Diego Cortez, an eighth grade student at AJMS.
