Many homeowners find ordering pizza cheaper than going out to a restaurant to eat. You can be coming from a long and tiring road trip, or you can be in your pajamas and still have a pizza right in front of you in minutes.

Why so Popular, Pizza?

One of the most famous food in the world is pizza. Although pizza originated from Italy, it has been adapted in the United States and other parts of the world. Pizza has become a popular fast food because it is easy to eat and comes in a variety of flavors and sizes.

Originally, pizza was an Italian dish often homemade and sold in family restaurants. In 1905, G. Lombardi opened his first licensed pizza restaurant in New York, and it became a success in the taste buds of American citizens and immigrants alike.

Aside from this, pizza is easy to make and easy to consume. It is the original ‘fast food’.  Many people also think that pizza is a healthier choice than a burger, because of the vegetables and toppings on every slice.

It’s no wonder pizza remains a popular staple whether you see it as junk food, fast food, or Italian cuisine. For many people, pizza simply means ‘delicious’.
