    As I understand, pizza as we know it today originated in Sicily, came over with the Italian emigrants to New York where it stayed a local dish.  Eventually, after WWII, pizza became popular across the nation after soldiers returned from Italy where they developed a taste for it.  I suspect that it might have deeper roots in the cultures around the area.

    As far as I am aware (and this is vague remeberings of a Dicovery channel show about pizza) it originated in Italy and was designed by the lower class. The upper class thought tomatoes were poisonous so only the lower class ate them. They put them on bread. Cheese was added later. Queen Margherita took interest in the pizza and decided it tasted good. So now pizzas in Italy are called "Pizza Margherita's" (and they're delicious).
