Cake and Pizza
A Thousand-Year-Old Story…
The word Cake derives from the Latin «tōrta da tortus» (twisted, round); with the meaning of «flat and round bread». The first cakes were made in the medieval era, flat like pressed bread sweetened with honey, dried fruit and ginger sometimes.
The word Pizza derives from Greek (pitta), «focaccia bread» focacius. In Latin “focus” means cooked in the fireplace. In the 16th century it referred to a “flattened bread“.
Ancient cakes were born with a round shape because they were meant to be bread whose dough was given a rounded shape and sank during the cooking process, becoming round and flat.
The «Round Pizza-Cakes» were donated to deities to represent the life cycles: The Moon and the Sun. Then, with time, they became to be used to celebrate birthdays.
Pizza is therefore a «Squashed cake!»
