PIZZA PIE | IT’S NATIONAL PIZZA DAY!

PIZZA PIE | IT’S NATIONAL PIZZA DAY!

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, Lombardi's, opened in 1905.  Since then pizza consumption has exploded in the U.S. We love it so much, in fact, that thirteen percent of the U.S. population consumes pizza on any given day.

A traditional Italian dish consisting of a yeasted flatbread typically topped with tomato sauce and cheese and baked in an oven, but let’s get real, that’s really not showing any love to what a really good pizza CAN be. Whether you’re an east coast “pie” lover, or a Chicago-style deep dish, hearty slice type, you gotta admit Americans have put their own spin on pizza in any way they can imagine. And no matter your preference, we won’t judge, and trust us, you will be sure to find one you’ll love out there. And that, my traveler friends, is what is amazing. Each of our states has its own unique spin on pizza, and we took the time to find a resource of those “best 50 pizzas” and share them with you.

Without further ado, In honor of such a fine fine food, we offer you Food Networks’ best pizza for each state (here). Not sure about all our traveler’s out there, but we’re bookmarking this as a very valuable resource. A check list, of sorts, for future travels of our own. I, for one, am definitely biased. Pizza is life. MANGIARE!
