PIZZA PIE!

IMG_1943LET’S TALK PIZZA…

or should we say Pizza? No matter how you “slice” it, it’s going to be awesome!   Vito’s restaurants pizza dough is made from scratch daily with the freshest of ingredients and is a plethora of cheesy goodness!

Exactly where did pizza originate? Modern day pizza is said to have originated in Naples when tomatoes were added to focaccia bread in the late 18th century. It became more popular during World War II when troops stationed in Italy started enjoying and experimenting with this newly found focaccia bread with sauce. In the 1700s through early 1800s, Naples was a thriving waterfront city where the working class had a very tight budget and had to consume food that was easy to make and quick to eat. The Neapolitans experimented with toppings such as anchovies, garlic, tomatoes and cheese on their focaccia bread and well it was all good after that! Pizza became a delicious, nutritious, easy to make food item!

In the late 1800s, Queen Margherita took a trip to Naples and as legend has it, she became quite bored with her diet of French food and asked for an assortment of pizzas from a local baker. The queen enjoyed the pizza with basil, tomatoes and mozzarella so much that the story goes, the combination was then named the Margherita Pizza!

When immigrants to the United States from Naples arrived in New York and other cities, they were seeking jobs in the manufacturing world. It didn’t take long for the Neapolitans to start making and selling pizza! The first documented pizzeria in the United States was Lombardi’s in Manhattan. It is still in operation today!

So the next time you’re thinking of pizza, think Vito’s! We think you’re going to love it!
