History and specifics
Pizza was generally a flat, oven-baked bread, usually round in shape, with a sauce, cheese, and other toppings. In the 20th and 21st centuries, a standard pizza was made with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, with a plethora of toppings optionally placed on top, including meat, fruit and/or vegetables. Pizza originated in the European nation-state of Italy, but later became popular throughout Europe and in the United States.
When Admiral James T. Kirk and his crew traveled back to 1986 Earth, Kirk and Doctor Gillian Taylor went to North Bay Pizza in San Francisco, where they were served by a waiter named Jason. Over dinner, Taylor told Kirk that the humpback whales George and Gracie were going to be removed the next day. They left the restaurant, taking the sausage, mushroom and onion pizza they ordered with them.
