Humble Beginnings 

Like so many other cuisines that made their way to America, the exact origins are a fact that’s lost to history. However, some of the earliest reports of the dish date back to 1889 in Italy. Oddly enough, the dish was thought of as a cuisine for the poor until Queen Margherita began popularizing the dish with mozzarella, sauce, basil, and garlic. Since then, its popularity has spread and can be found all over the world in numerous variations. 

Vegetarian Pizza 

While there are many people who love pizza, not everyone eats meat-based protein.  If you’re one of those people, then a vegetarian pizza is perfectly suited for you. Accompanied by a wide variety of vegetables to maximize taste, many can have their crusts made from cauliflower if you’re abstaining from gluten. 

New York Pizza 

As the name suggests, this style of pizza originated in and around New York City. Easy to make and relatively inexpensive to prepare, the thin crust can be made crunchy or soft and is a favorite among many children. 

Sicilian Pizza 

If you’re someone who enjoys pizza with an excessive and decadent amount of cheese, then this is nothing short of heaven on earth. Served with a thick or thick crust, depending on the chef. With mozzarella, cheddar, gorgonzola, and parmesan, you’ll experience cheese utopia. 

Chicago Pizza 

If you’re someone who enjoys a thick crust and an excessive amount of toppings, then the Chicago pizza was made for you. Known by some as a “deep-dish pizza,” this treat is multilayered and is sometimes needed to be consumed with a fork. Fans of Chicago style enjoy the layers of toppings and endless amount of combinations contained therein.
