Few foods speak to the American soul like pizza. Pizzas have become the most popular food in America with entire football fields eaten daily. In Tennessee you can find a pizza places all over. You can make pizza however you like it. It doesn’t have to be unhealthy, maybe you use it to pile on the veggies for the kids. Or it can be a decadent special treat for yourself and family with all that oozy-gooey cheese you love.
There are also several different styles of pizza. The Chicago deep dish, famous for its thick crust topped with mounds of cheese and chunky tomato sauce is an excellent example. Other popular styles include Greek style, Neapolitan, Sicilian, and perhaps even Tennessee style?
