Chicken Pizza
F8.0 | 1/250s | ISO 200

Pizza is an oven-baked, flat, round bread typically topped with a tomato sauce, cheese and various toppings. Originally invented in Naples, Italy, the dish has since become popular in many parts of the world. An establishment that makes and sells pizzas is called a "pizzeria". The bottom of the pizza, called the "crust", may vary widely according to style thin as in a typical hand-tossed pizza or Roman pizza, or thick as in a typical pan pizza or Chicago style pizza. It is traditionally plain, but may also be seasoned with garlic or herbs, or stuffed with cheese.

In restaurants, pizza can be baked in an oven with stone bricks above the heat source, an electric deck oven, a conveyor belt oven or, in the case of more expensive restaurants, a wood- or coal-fired brick oven. On deck ovens, the pizza can be slid into the oven on a long paddle, called a peel, and baked directly on the hot bricks or baked on a screen (a round metal grate, typically aluminum). When made at home, it can be baked on a pizza stone in a regular oven to reproduce the effect of a brick oven. Another option is grilled pizza, in which the crust is baked directly on a barbecue grill. Greek pizza, like Chicago style pizza, is baked in a pan rather than directly on the bricks of the pizza oven.
