Pizza is Americas favorite food. The first pizza was created in Naples, Italy in the year 1889. Called the Margherita in honor of the first Italian queen, this ¨first pizza¨ remained isolated in Naples for over fifty years until the 1940´s during WW2 when American soldiers discovered it and began requesting it. Meanwhile, in 1905, Italian immigrants in New York City opened Americas first pizzeria (Lombardi’s). In other words, though not ¨born¨ in the USA, pizza was given life in the USA, and then, from New York City, pizza began spreading back out to the rest of the world.
