Where did pizza come from?
Modern-day pizza may have originated in Naples, Italy, but it was the United States that made it popular in Italy and around the world. The birth of this modern-day delight went full circle before landing in the hearts of Italians. Pizza’s birthplace, the pizza as we know it today, was a staple for everyday Neapolitans that spent most of their days working hard and at the end of the day, they just needed to eat without sparing too much expense. This was a quick and cheap eat and it was perfect for their bustling lifestyle.
It wasn’t until the 1940s when immigrants to the US from Naples, Italy started to recreate pizzas in big metropolitan cities like New York and Chicago. Similar to the Neapolitans, these hard-working immigrants, coming home from factories, needed something quick and inexpensive to eat. This led to the American pizza and the opening of pizza shops. Eventually, more migration of Italian Americans from the cities into the suburbs propelled the popularity of pizza in the United States. The cheesy treat shifted from being an Italian delight to a fun and popular fast food loved by everyone. Word of this US popularized pizza reached Italy. And, just like anything cool and exciting coming from the United States, the modern pizza was thus picked up by the Italians and even around the world.
