Pizza Pie Day 2024: It’s Pizza Pie Day on February 9. It’s one of the many delectable food holidays observed in the United States. Pizza Pie Day is a celebration of one of the most beloved foods in America: pizza. 36% of Americans eat pizza for breakfast. Did you know that? Although historians assert that pizza-like foods were a regular staple in the ancient Middle East, the recipe’s perfectionism and popularization are attributed to the Italians. Due to the soldiers’ growing love for pizza during their time in Italy during World War II, pizzerias began to appear in the United States in response to their requests.

The background of Pizza Pie Day

Some sources and culinary historians argue that locals in ancient Egypt, Rome, Greece, Israel, and other parts of the Mediterranean region consumed pizza-like flatbreads baked in mud ovens, even though the true inventor of pizza is unknown. Nonetheless, the city of Naples in eighteenth-century Italy is where the modern culinary style originated.

Pizza was once thought of as food for the underprivileged, who were forced to eat cheap food from roadside eateries and street vendors because they couldn’t afford wholesome, high-quality meals. The peasants back then consumed pizza for every meal, which was made up of flatbread topped with a variety of ingredients, including cheese, garlic, tomatoes, oil, and anchovies.

Modern pizza’s recipe and fame are primarily attributed to Naples baker Raffaele Esposito. To commemorate the royal visit of Italian King Umberto I and his wife in 1889, Esposito’s restaurant, Pizzeria di Pietro, made a special pie topped with tomato sauce, basil, and mozzarella. Before World War II, most Italian immigrants in the United States consumed and sold pizza locally.

But after the Allied Forces occupied Italy, soldiers turned to eating regional Italian food, and they soon developed such a strong appetite for pizza that the neighborhood bakers found it difficult to meet the soldiers’ demands. The idea of the Italian delicacy gained popularity in America partly due to the war veterans who took their love of it back to their home country.

Lombardi’s was a grocery store in New York City that Gennaro Lombardi originally owned and which later gained notoriety as the top pizzeria in North America. As a result, in succeeding years, pizza shops proliferated in New York City and across the United States.
