Wednesday is National Cheese Pizza Day.

The modern pizza had its beginnings in Italy as the "Neapolitan flatbread."

The original pizza used only mozzarella cheese, primarily cheese produced in the surroundings of Naples.

The first U.S. pizza establishment opened in New York’s Little Italy neighborhood back in 1905.

It's estimated that about two billion pounds of pizza cheese was produced in the U.S. in 1997.
