How Did Pizza Become a Favorite American Food?

In the 19th century, the simple Italian dish was introduced into the United States by immigrants that used ingredients from their hometowns.  New York’s Little Italy became the first place in the country to offer pizza by a Neapolitan immigrant named Gennaro Lombardi.

During the Great Depression, families didn’t have any money, and pizza rose in popularity with every household in the United States.  Even at that stage, most of the pizza made was limited to the communities of Italian immigrants.

Once World War II was finished, American soldiers came home craving the beloved pizza from Italy.  By the time 1950 came around, pizza had become one of the most popular foods on the American family’s dinner plate.
