    Proof that this isn`t true: Korean word for pizza is pija. If they invented it, they`d have their own word for it :P Also I was just messing around with my keyboard input settings before posting here, and I typed the beginning of this in Korean .

    Marco Polo stole my pizza!

    When Marco Polo returned to Europe and said, "they have noodle`s like ours, but different," the story got a little twisted. There have been noodles in Europe since before Roman times.

    Guys i`m an Italian and i clearly know that pizza come from Africa, in the past was used also like a coin. The actual elaboration of this product is italian, but the original and less elaborated form come from Africa. Was just some flat bread covered with spares ingredients. I think that pizza was one of the first aliment in the history of human kind all over the world. The actual form we all know is just a refinery of the original rough form.

    This has to be a joke b/c it`s hilarious. Even if true, who cares? It`s not like Marco Polo took it away from Korea leaving them pizzaless forever.... he just globalized it. Okay Korea, we`ll play ball and replace all of the images of stereotypical Italian dudes on the pizza boxes with stereotypical images of a korean dude. Deal?

    I beg to differ. Korea is the greatest civilisation to have existed. And that`s coming from a non-Korean. Japan comes a close second for tentacle porn.

    Regardless, pizza was not invented in Korea. Everybody knows pizza was invented in America.

    While this particular video is a parody, it`s funny primarily because it`s only slightly exaggerated; some Korean "historians" (and conspiracy theorists) claim a Korean origin for all sorts of things, including all language, the Japanese civilization, possibly the Andean (Incan) civilizations, that they once had an empire stretching to Iran & Iraq; plus technological innovations like iron ore processing, rice cultivation, and pottery. So, only slightly more ridiculous than the "truth".

    Actually pizza was first created by the Persians in modern day Iran around 500 B.C.. Usually created by moving armies who would bake bread with cheese on their shields. They usually added dates as a topping. This practice reached the Greeks who made what they called "plakountos." From there it slowly migrated to Naples, they couldn`t seem to eat anything without tomato sauce and called it pizza meaning "a point."

    That was pretty well done.

    There was spaghetti in Italy a few centuries before Marco Polo, btw.

    What`s more interesting is how pasta was cooked during the Renaissance and just before: they`d cook it for an hour and add lots of spices and a sprinkle of sugar over the top. Pretty disgusting.
