There’s No Such Thing as Too Much Pizza in Chicago

A Brief History of Pizza

The first pizza was invented around 600 B.C. in a Greek settlement. The people living there cooked outdoors and needed an inexpensive food that would fill them up so they could have the energy to work. So, thankfully, someone invented pizza.

Back in the day, the pizza we know today was flatbread with various toppings. Pizza continued to evolve with sauces and cheeses, tomatoes and herbs.

People say in the late 1800s, Queen Margherita visited these Greek settlements and tried the pizza. Thus, she fell in love with it and encouraged Italians to make and eat pizza.

As people immigrated to the United States, they brought the concept of pizza with them. Today, we enjoy a variety of pizza and some cities, like Chicago, have even created their own style.

The Joys of Pizza in Chicago

Undoubtedly, Chicago is best known for its Chicago deep dish pizza. A deep dish pizza usually requires a fork as it can be up to two inches deep. Chicago also offers stuffed pizza where cheese fills the crust.

Pan pizza is thicker than regular pizza, but not as thick as a deep dish pizza. If you love pizza, you will want to live in Chicago in a luxury apartment home where you can enjoy it all.
