Taking it back in time.

Like anything, there is a first when it comes to pepperoni pizza. And, like any food, the beginnings always have a few variations. However, with this said pizza, many stories bring the reader to New York City during the year of 1905 as immigration into America was at its peak. With immigration came bits and pieces of many different cultures – like pepperoni and pizza.
