The idea here was that the food was more fattening than the pizza avaliable in our own country. Not that the pizza was originally or ever an american made dish.

I hate to say that the **** that comes out of places like dominos and pizzahut isn't even pizza anymore. It's just more americanized fastfood garbage. So I'd say that the crap that comes out of those places can be considered American. In the few areas of the country that has real pizza, everyone there knows who to thanks for that (New York, Connecticut, mostly N. East areas)

No we don't know that for sure.
What is sure is that Italy can be given the credit for spreading it over the world.

Modern pizza originated in Italy as the Neapolitan pie with tomato. In 1889, cheese was added.

Putting stuff on bread was done all over the world, we are talking about real pizza.

Yeah we we have those "pizzahuts" too here in Belgium. They cost twice as much as a real italian pizzeria and the food sucks, go figure.

That's what I was trying to say with the last sentence; the whole "we know who to thank for that" part. I meant Italy
