When did the first pizzeria open?

The world's first true pizzeria is thought to be "Antica Pizzeria Port'Alba" which opened in 1830 in Naples, Italy and is still in business today.

In 1889, a Neapolitan named Rafaele Esposito prepared pizza for King Umberto I and Queen Margherita. With colors of green (basil), white (mozzarella), and red (tomatoes), the pizza was prepared to resemble the Italian flag.

In 1895, an Italian immigrant named Gennaro Lombardi opened the first U.S. pizzeria in New York City.
