Menu items change, and restaurants come and go. But one thing has remained the same after all these years: Pizza is still fantastic!
Take a look back at all things pizza. Get ready for your mouth to water!
1. Domino's Noid
The mischievous mascot's sole purpose was to thwart fast and efficient pizza delivery by Domino's in the 1980s.
2. Showbiz Pizza
Before the days when kids flocked to Chuck E. Cheese's for pizza and games, there was ShowBiz Pizza. Kids either loved or hated the animatronic mascots, there was no in between.
The Keebler elves are known for their cookies, but at one point they made some really tasty pizza flavored chips. Who remembers these?
4. Celentano frozen pizza
Many people think the first frozen pizza on the market is still the best to this day. Do you agree?
After a brief run with pizza in the 1980s and 1990s, McDonalds abandoned the cheesy menu item because it took too long to make. However, two locations still serve it in the United States.
6. Pizza Hut Electronic Baking Oven
If it wasn't enough that kids could bake their own pizzas in the 1970s, the oven was shaped like an actual Pizza Hut.

7. Pizza Hut's iconic red roof
This type of roof helped give the Pizza Hut brand some distinction. Although some older locations still have the roof, newer ones are going for a more modern look.
8. Pizza Pete
Before Pizza Hut became known for its red roof logo, it had a mascot. Pizza Pete was created in the late 1960s and was phased out a decade later.
9. Pizza flavored Doritos
Pizza flavored chips didn't stop with Pizzarias. In the 1990s, Doritos came out with their own version.
10. Pizza Day at school
Don't you remember looking forward to this day at school all week? It makes us wish they would institute a pizza day at work.
