2 Background

3 Historical Background
The lower class of Naples, Italy is believed to have created pizza in today’s familiar fashion The first pizzeria opened in 1830 in Naples, Italy--it’s still in business today Pizza made its way to the inner cities of the United States, New York and Chicago most notably, in the early 1900s thanks to the large population of Italian immigrants American soldiers further prompted the dish to become very popular at the end of World War II, having been exposed to it while serving on the Italian front Today’s largest pizza chains (Pizza Hut, Domino’s Pizza & Little Caesars) began popping up all over the U.S. in the late 1950s, early 1960s Source:

4 Traditional Types of Pizza
Traditional Crust Pizza: The crust is not too thick and not too thin. Usually it is created by rolling the dough into a round circle then topping it with sauce and cheese Deep Dish Pizza: A thick crust and dense toppings usually characterize deep-dish pizza, also known as pan pizza New York Style Pizza: The crust of this pizza tends to be much thinner than traditional and deep dish.
