Modernist Pizza Research

The Modernist Cuisine team is hard at work researching one of the world’s favorite foods—pizza. Here are some of the topics we are looking into; if you have information to share, we’d love to hear from you.

Photos of pizza and pizzerias from 1900 through the 1960s

Pizza might be one of the world’s most photographed foods, but that hasn’t always been the case. The Modernist Cuisine team is looking for early photographs of pizza and pizzerias from the United States, Brazil, Argentina, and Italy from 1900 through the 1960s. If selected, the photograph you submit could end up in the pages of Modernist Pizza and help us tell the story of how pizza has been made, served, and enjoyed over time.
