Pan Crust  
Almost any type of pan can give good results, though directions for brushing with oil and sprinkling with cornmeal differ slightly with each. In fact, the use of cornmeal is not required to prevent sticking except when using a pizza stone, but a little sprinkled on the surface of any pan will give added texture to the crust.    
Pizza Origin
Originating in a part of Italian cuisine, the dish has become popular in many different parts of the world. A shop or restaurant that primarily makes and sells pizzas is called a "pizzeria". The phrases "pizza parlor", "pizza place" and "pizza shop" are used in the United States. The term pizza pie is dialectal, and pie is used for simplicity in some contexts, such as among pizzeria staff.
Pizza around the world
Pizza is popular in Australia, where a significant percentage of the population is of Italian descent. The usual Italian varieties are available, but there is also the Australian, or australiana, which has the usual tomato sauce base and mozzarella cheese with bacon and egg (seen as quintessentially Australian breakfast fare). Prawns are also sometimes used on this style of pizza.

Some Pizza Facts

As far back as the year 1000, the Roman soldiers tasted PICEA and thought it lacked FOCUS (the Latin word for hearth). On a hearth, along with oil, herbs and cheese ... pizza was born.
The root word in Latin is PICEA, which describes the blackening of the crust caused by the fire underneath.

The modern precursor to what we call pizza occurred in pre-Renaissance Naples. Poor housewives had only flour, olive oil, lard, cheese and herbs with which to feed their families, so combining them in a tasty and delicious manner became the goal. All of Italy proclaimed the Neapolitan pies to be the best.

The most famous experiment of all was by a pizza maker named Raffaele Esposito, who received a royal summons to prepare a special pizza for Queen Margherita. You don't want to disappoint a Queen, you know what I'm saying? He decided to salute the colors of the Italian flag by adding white mozzarella to red tomato and green basil. It became so popular that it's still sold today. If you're a good and popular Queen like Margherita was, you can probably even get it free.
