Pizza is one of America’s favorite dishes. Pizza was born in Italy and imported by Italian and Sicilian immigrants to the United States. Those immigrants started pizzerias and the dish took off. Chain restaurants like Pizza Hut and carry out/delivery places like Domino’s and Papa John’s soon followed. However the best pizzas have always come from local pizzerias where the chefs create pizza pies using their own special recipes. The Fort Smith area has several of these restaurants.
