Pizza Hut Original Pan Pizza

The common belief is that Italians invented pizza, but its origin goes back to ancient times in the Middle East, where ancient cultures ate flat, unleavened bread cooked in mud ovens.

The Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians were eating the bread topped with olive oil and native spices (what is today called focaccia).

But Italy’s version of the dish, especially from Naples, is the one we are familiar with – with tomato, cheese, and other toppings and seasonings.  Supposedly, this pizza was first created by the baker Raffaele Esposito in Naples.

In America, the first pizzeria was opened in 1905 by Gennuardo Lombardi at 53 1/3 Spring Street in New York City.
