The story of pizzerias in the United States started in 1905 when Gennaro Lombardi was an Italian native, opened the first licensed pizzeria. In the days before, street vendors sold hot pizza using charcoal drums. Lombardi as well as Ric Riccardo Sr. quickly rose in popularity and expanded into the restaurant business. In addition to pioneering the deep dish pizza they also invented a gas-fired oven.

In the late 1940s, during the 1940s the US Army used pizza delivery and pizza soon became a staple for the military. In the following decades, Americans gave the dish another chance in American cities. Adaptations in the dough and sauce allowed bakers to create authentic Italian dishes that suited the preferences and tastes of American consumers. For instance, the Chicago style pizza is made with an incredibly deep-kernel crust. Rocky Mountain Pie has a thicker crust, which is popular in Colorado. In the 90s, Kraft patented a self-rising crust, making the simplest of doughs into highly-delicious items.

Fast-food pizza chains quickly became popular and spread across the nation. Many of these establishments were independent, and some were owned by Greek or Italian operators. In all cases, however the food was American made. In the beginning, people would make the mozzarella themselves. Some bought freshly made mozzarella at local merchants. The sauce was made from scratch too, and was typically made from canned tomatoes. In the beginning, pizza was mostly eaten by family and friends.
