Yeah, most Italian immigrants lived in New York City because of Ellis Island before they came to New Haven so it doesn’t seem right for American pizza, either. I’m happy to be corrected though 🤷🏻‍♀️

Your right… Lombardis in New York is often given this honor… Frank Pepe’s started selling his tomato pies in the 20s… Lombary’s started 1903 or around then… and they are credited with also being the pizzería that created the idea of selling individual pizza slices as workers would wrap them in tin foil and eat el at lunch while at their construction jobs.
