Editorial Reviews

Whether it's a thin crust or a deep dish ordered by the slice or the whole pie America has been head-over-heels for pizza for well over a century. On average Americans eat approximately 350 slices of pizza per second-about 100 acres of pizza a day! At last count there were close to 70000 pizzerias in the U.S. working tirelessly to satisfy that multi-billion-dollar craving. During this lip-smacking gastronomic tour discover how the history of pizza in America has come full circle-from small Italian-American communities to the cutthroat competition of global chains to the mass-produced world of frozen pizza and finally back to distinctive personal pies. Featuring visits to the nation's most fabled pizza houses and compelling interviews with chefs foodies and cultural historians AMERICAN EATS serves up the fascinating and mouth-watering story behind PIZZA.

Good show about pizza and the origins of this food and how it cane to America and the difference in the thin New York style and the thick Chicago style.

I had some leftover pizza waiting for me at home when I watched this. So I am not sure if watching this will make you want to order pizza or not.

This work was useful to me because it answered all the important questions. What are the origins of pizza? How did an Italian dish become so popular in the US? What are the origins of Pizza Hut and Domino's? When did deep-dish pizza arrive? When did delivery pizza get invented? When did frozen pizza become available to the public? Etc.

Maybe Food Channel Network fans would have wanted more. For me, as a layperson who just loves him some pizza this was highly informative and in a easily (mentally) digestable format. Thanks, History Channel!
