Pizzerias first opened in the United States in 1905, but they didn’t soar in popularity until after World War II.
This is because soldiers returned home craving the pizza they had tasted while fighting in Italy.
Today, Americans east approximately one hundred acres of pizza every day, and if you would like to enjoy a few slices, stop by one of the following restaurants:
Named the “Best New Restaurant in Dallas” in 2017, Pie Tap is owned by Sicilian born chef Giovanni Mauro. He trained in his mother’s kitchen where he perfected a dough recipe that rests and rises for 96 hours. This process creates a light, flavorful crust that’s topped with fresh ingredients. Guests can watch as their pizza bakes in the open kitchen, and choices include mushroom, chicken, and Margherita.
Cane Rosso is known for serving the most authentic Neapolitan-style pizza in Texas. The idea for the restaurant was born during Jay Jerrier’s honeymoon to Italy, as it’s where he tasted his first real slice of Italian pizza. Jay knew that he had tried something special, and a few years after arriving home, he had a wood-burning oven built. The first Cane Rosso location opened in Dallas in 2011, and the pizzas bake at 900 degrees for less than ninety seconds. Options include Special K, Regina Margherita, and Friday Night Frankie.
Tutta’s is a funky pizzeria nestled in the West End Historic District. Pronounced “too-tahs,” it’s owned by Jeremy and Amanda Scott who wanted to make pizzas topped with slow-smoked meats and fresh vegetables. They started with a food truck in 2012 and opened the brick and mortar location four years later. It offers a lively atmosphere, and frequently hosts both open mic and karaoke nights. On the menu, guests find specialty pizzas such as Smoky Pig, Durty Dough, and Feelin’ Aloha.
