History of Pizza on National Pizza Day

According to History.com, the modern birthplace of pizza is southwestern Italy’s Campania region, home to the city of Naples. It was made to be a fairly inexpensive food that could be eaten quickly. Sounds like it was made for today’s culture.

But it was still a little known secret until Queen Margherita visited Naples (Italy, not Florida) and loved the pizza. She loved the pizza that would eventually become known as “Pizza Margherita.” If you haven’t tried our Pizza Margherita yet, you should. 

Fast forward a little more and immigrants from Naples, Italy, moved to New York and other places, and guess what…pizza came with them. At least by 1905 there was a pizzeria in New York by the name of G. Lombardi’s. Not too long after that, pizza joints were popping up all over the place, along with the debate of who has the best pizza in town.

So now that you know an abbreviated version of National Pizza Day, you should come by and try some of our legendary pizzas. We offer both traditional New York style pizza and an amazing Sicilian thick Crust pizza. We’ve got all the traditional toppings and incredible specialty pies, like Chicken Parmigiana, Greek Pizza, Margherita, and others.

Come on in today, and celebrate National Pizza Day!
