If you were to ask people what they thought the most popular food in the world was I think most would agree that the winner of that contest would be pizza!! Everyone loves a good pizza. Whether it’s a thin crust Neapolitan or deep dish Chicago style who can say no to its gooey melted cheese and fresh toppings piping hot from the oven? Not me that’s for sure.
Modern pizza evolved from similar flatbreads served in Naples, Italy in the 18th or early 19th century. Prior to that time, flatbread was often topped with ingredients such as garlic, salt, lard, cheese, and basil. Until about 1830, pizza was sold from open-air stands and pizza bakeries similar to pizzerias you find today. Antica Pizzeria Port'Alba in Naples is widely regarded as the first pizzeria.
A popular legend says that pizza Margherita, which is your basic sauce and cheese combo, was invented in 1889, when Raffaele Esposito created a pizza in honor of the visiting Queen Margherita. He made three different pizzas but the queen strongly preferred the simple pizza swathed in the colors of the Italian flag: red (tomato), green (basil), and white (mozzarella). Supposedly, this kind of pizza was then named after the queen as "Pizza Margherita".
Pizza was brought to the United States with Italian immigrants in the late nineteenth century and first appeared in areas where Italian immigrants concentrated. The country's first pizzeria was called Lombardi's and opened in 1905 in New York City. Since then pizza consumption grew in the U.S and has gained popularity world wide.
