Considered a peasant's meal in Italy for centuries we cannot say who invented the very first pizza pie. Food historians agree that pizza like dishes were eaten by many peoples in the Mediterranean including the Greeks and Egyptians.
However, modern pizza has been attributed to baker Raffaele Esposito of Naples. In 1889, Esposito who owned a restaurant called the Pizzeria di Pietro baked what he called "pizza" especially for the visit of Italian King Umberto I and Queen Margherita.
The first pizzeria in North America was opened in 1905 by Gennaro Lombardi at 53 1/3 Spring Street in New York City.
I'd have to say Pizza Hut for me, the best crust if you get the pan pizza. Just the perfect porprtion of sauce and cheeze and topping on the best crust.
Winner winner chicken dinner :D Man, I love the pan pizza from pizza hut, I usually get pepperoni lovers but the crust is amazing, I probably order at least a few a week, and being that spring break is here probably even more.
I really love Dominoes too when I get the thin crust, it just can't touch Pizza Hut's pan pizza.

You know the Pizza Hut commercial where "They deliver the pasta!!!!!"?
Well next time it's on take a look after the 'big reveal'. There is tons of clapping noise but not one of the dinner guests is clapping. Drives me crazy.
P-L just posted a link showing it was invented in Italy...
I always thought that was general knowledge, but I guess there's no limits to Americans' ethnocentrism.
Uhhhh.... actually his link says no one knows who originally invented the pizza, just the modern pizza. Might want to read that again. But it's funny this debate comes up because two guys at my volunteer site were arguing over who actually invented pizza just the other day.
as far as pizza in Milwaukee goes, the best i've found (and i'm pretty convinced that this is the best i'll find in this city) is a place called Oakland Trattoria. It's across the street from Oakland Gyros, the best greek restaurant in the city. Those who go to UW Milwauke (i'm looking at you Yodachu) should at least know all about OG's
