Pizza: A Historical Debate

Wow.. it's been so long since I have posted a new topic. For the longest time I was beginning to feel that my contributions to this site dedicated to foodlovers across the country were unappreciated. A few of them even went so far as to break my spirit in doing so on various other accounts. But for those subscribers who found praise in my work, I have not forgotten you. I especially owe a great deal of thanks to my friend NYNM for her support. CuzinVinny is here to stay!!!
Now, I have read so many detailed posts by you wonderful folks here at Roadfood. I find them all to be a symbol of pure genius. As many of you know, I have a reputation for posting columns about Italian cuisine presented across the globe. Having just read NYNM's "History of Pizza", I was immediately inspired to post my own discussion.
In this post, I will provide detailed information as to how the humble pizza was transplanted into American culture via New York, along with their vast distinctions. We all know it was brought to us through the great influx of Neapolitan immigrants sometime in the mid-1890's and laid it's foundation in New York. It is from here that the rest of the world became synonymous with it's unique preparation. Most of the same technique was integrated with what can arguably be called America's first pizzeria, Lombardi's.
In fact, the only real differences between Naples and America were subtle. Gennaro Lombardi became synonymous for bringing the first authentic brick-oven pizzeria to the U.S. He found that coal was much cheaper than wood, the traditional element to preparing their profound staple of cuisine. Lombardi also discovered a more efficient way to care for his customers, one that was both financially suitable and more convenient. He began to make larger pies, large enough for a whole family and employed the same process of home delivery founded in his native country. This bit of savvy would soon create a world-wide revolution so great it would eventually rise to the top as perhaps the world's greatest enterprise.
In a world today where few could be praised for excellence, we may remember such a person who has literally changed the world as we know it.

    Well, Cussing said that Pizza may have very well changed the world. I certainly hope that he did not have the above photo in mind.

    I see that despite this thread being called a debate, that's just not going to be permitted. Whilst deleting posts, perhaps the deleter might give some thought to changing the topic in order to reflect that debate is not permitted.

    I show respect when it is deserved. I made no personal attack. My post was about the post. It is good to know, though, that questions will not be tolerated. George Orwell lives!
