(NAPSI)—Pizza has been pleasing taste buds for a very long time. And today, Americans consume nearly 350 slices of pizza every second! But how often do the people eating this tasty food stop to consider the history?

Pizza’s Evolution In The U.S.

Let’s take a look back at how pizza has changed, and stayed the same, since it first made its way to the United States in the early 1900s.

After its introduction to Americans, pizza quickly changed from a dish made and enjoyed at home to one that had commercial appeal. In fact, the first documented United States pizzeria was G. Lombardi’s on Spring Street in Manhattan in 1905. Today, there are more than 70,000 pizzerias across the U.S.

The popularity of pizza in the U.S. continued to grow through the 1950s, with the introduction of frozen pizzas at grocery stores. Then, in 1974, another major milestone occurred when STOUFFER’S® introduced the French Bread Pizza. Its famous crunchy crust, rich cheese and sweet-yet-spicy sauce make a delicious combo that has been enjoyed for over 40 years!
