Pizza may have Mediterranean origins, but modern pizza
is pure American. Pizza was originally sold as street food by
Italian immigrants during the turn of the century, and Americans
came to love it, change it (deep dish anyone?) and cultivate it
into a multi-billion dollar industry. Many recent polls (including
our own) list pizza as American's favorite food. Here are the best
contemporary restaurants in major cities across the U.S. as
selected by the editors of LocalEats.
