The Deliciously Entertaining History Of Pizza In New York City

New York City is the birthplace of pizza in America, and pizza is so intrinsically tied to the city that many historical tours will include stops at pizzerias like Lombardi's, America's first pizzeria, which opened in 1905.

And that's what's kind of amazing about New York City pizza- places are serving up tasty slices all over the city, and some of these places have been in operation for a hundred years.

Host Frank Pinello investigates the pizzas of Brooklyn in the premiere of the Munchies series "The Pizza Show":

New York is the birthplace of many things, but for today’s purposes, we’re sticking to pizza. Frank starts with a quick history lesson from Scott Wiener, the owner of Scott’s Pizza Tours. Then, we hit the streets to see and taste the history for ourselves. The best thing about the city’s pizza scene is that it’s relatively young, so you can still eat slices from the ovens of the people that started it all and put New York pizza on the map.
