The evolution of pizza in Sweden:

"Swedish kebab pizza is a manifestation of migration history and socioeconomics. Turkish and Balkan families introduced the Kebab a close cousin of the Greek gyro – thinly sliced, spiced, processed meat served with fresh onions, Tzatziki sauce, pickled green peppers and lettuce in a wrap, sandwich bread or on a bed of fries. "

“Fast-food kiosks serving the standard fare of pizza and kebabs are common in both urban centers and rural Sweden. As start-up businesses go, the costs are reasonably low and the kolgrill/pizzeria quickly became a favourite for newly arrived migrant families. The story according to Swedish celebrity chef Magnus Nilsson is that the first pizzerias opened in Sweden in the 1940s. With the invitation of migrant workers from southern Europe in the 1970s, the kebab shop arrived. When Balkan families arrived in the 1990s, they introduced the pizza salad, which is a sliced white cabbage doused in vinegar, salt and black pepper. Affordable and easily available, one is spoiled for choice with the kebab pizza. These days you can even find kebab pizza in your grocery store’s frozen-food aisle.”

Is it lunchtime already?
