[WATCH] In-Depth Video Dishes Out History Behind New York City Pizza Legends

The Pizza Show is a new show from Munchies that explores pizza world wide with Brooklyn-native host, and owner of Best Pizza in Williamsburg, Frank Pinello. In this episode of the series, Pinello gets to the bottom of New York City slice history with help from Scott Weiner of Scott's Pizza Tours.

New York is the birthplace of many things, but for today's purposes, we're sticking to pizza. Frank starts with a quick history lesson from Scott Wiener, the owner of Scott's Pizza Tours. Then, we hit the streets to see and taste the history for ourselves. The best thing about the city's pizza scene is that it's relatively young, so you can still eat slices from the ovens of the people that started it all and put New York pizza on the map.

We meet the granddaughters of the man that literally brought pizza over from Naples, and even see the ovens that he used. Then, we hit all the best slices from Greenwich Village to Soho, and finish in Brooklyn at Luigi's Pizza, a place untouched by time.
