Greg Warren is here with a Warren Report on the history of pizza. It all started in the 6th century BC as Persian soldiers ate baked flatbreads with cheese and dates off their shields. Modern pizza originated in Naples, Italy in 1830. The first licensed pizzeria in the US, G. Lombardi’s, opened in 1905 in New York City. Ace Cosby was blessed when the first frozen pizza, Totino’s, came out in 1962.
