Link: How Memphians Learned to Eat Pizza

Posted By on Mon, Jul 26, 2010 at 10:49 AM

Saw this post on Serious Eats about Coletta's barbecue pizza, which contained this little gem, which pertains to when the restaurant introduced pizza in the 1950s:

Apparently when Coletta's started serving pizza, locals had no idea what it was or how to eat it. Only when they decided to top it with something a bit more familiar [barbecue] did the pizza take off.

Really? Is this true?
