When it comes to fast food, pizza is by far the most popular and sought after food world over. Our ancestors have been eating pizza, in one form or another, for centuries. As far back as antiquity, pieces of flatbread, topped with savouries, have been served as a simple meal for those who could not afford plates, or who were on the go. But it was in Naples, a city in southern Italy, where bakers prepared the first dish to be known as a “pizza” in the 1600s. According to popular tradition, in 1889, during a visit to Naples of Queen Margherita of Savoy, chef Raffaele Esposito of Da Pietro Pizzeria (now known as Pizzeria Brandi) and his wife created  a pizza resembling the colours of the Italian flag, red (tomato), white
(mozzarella) and green (basil). Queen Margherita approved of this pizza and it soon became known as pizza Margherita.
But it was the advent of pizza chains in the 19th century that made pizza world’s best fast food. Among the pioneers was the American restaurant chain and international franchise Pizza Hut that first opened doors in 1958, followed by Domino’s in 1960, and Papa John’s in 1989. They all had one goal in mind that was to sell pizzas to masses.
Pizza essentially consists of three things: dough, sauce, and toppings. Yet this simple dish has spawn hundreds of variations and resulted in a $30 billion worldwide industry. It is no surprise then we in Qatar love pizza too and here are some restaurants that serve our
