Transcript of History of Pizza in America

Pizza in the United States Pizza has a long history that would be wayyy too long to fit in a Prezi. So, I decided to reseach the history of modern day pizza in America. Enjoy.! It is a very tasty dish that came over from Europe in the late 19th century. Pizza was introdouced in different places in different ways. Here are some examples... Pizza was introduced in Chicago by a peddler selling Pizza up and down a street in Chicago Many followed his example and soon the first “official” pizzeria opened in Little Italy New York. Within 10 years pizza was introduced to many other parts of the USA such as New Jersey when Joes tomato Pies and Papas tomato pies opened up. Then in 1924 a man named Antonio Totonno Pero left one of the original Pizzerias in New York. He opened up a shop for pizza on Coney Island. Soon in 1948 a man named Frank A. Fiorillo created the first commercial pizza mix called Roman Pizza Mix. Because of the rising popularity chain restaurants moved in. Leading early pizza chains were Shakey's Pizza, founded in 1954 in Sacramento, California. Pizza Hut was another chain restaurant founded in 1958 in Wichita, Kansas, and Josey's Pizza Later successful restaurant chains were Bertucci's, Happy Joe's, Monical's Pizza, California Pizza Kitchen, Godfather's Pizza, and Round Table Pizza. Today, many of the successful companies specialize in pizza delivery, such as Domino's, Brooklyn Pizzeria, Papa John's Pizza, and Godfather's Pizza. Another recent development is the take-and-bake pizzeria, such as Papa Murphy's. This has been the history of pizza in America. Thanks for listening. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_pizza

Works Cited The way to make homemade dough is to proof the yeast. This is done by adding a small amount of warm water to the yeast granules to activate the yeast cultures. You also need to add sugar to feed the yeast. Once this is done and the yeast has started to bubble, you add flour and water, then you knead the dough. you need to knead the dough to get gluten to develop in the dough. This makes air pockets form that allow carbon dioxide to get in the dough. The carbon dioxide helps the dough rise. Then all you have to do is add the traditional toppings and bake.
