Seattle’s beloved Capitol Hill neighborhood is a growing cultural destination. It sits mere blocks from the downtown business district and has long been home to dive bars, music venues, art spaces and obviously, pizza. It’s a place where local music enthusiasts can see a show at a variety of venues; Neumos, Comet Tavern, Chop Suey, or any of the numerous art spaces whose doors are always open to the artistic and cultural communities that thrive in the neighborhood.

Pizza History

General. Comments Off on Pizza History

Pizza first made its appearance in the United States with the arrival of Italian immigrants in the late 19th century. This was certainly the case in cities with large Italian populations, such as New York City, Chicago, and Philadelphia where pizza was first sold on the streets of Italian neighborhoods. In the late 19th century, for example, pizza was introduced by peddlers who walked up and down the streets with a metal washtub of pizzas on their heads, selling their wares at two cents a chew. This was the way pizza used to be sold in Naples, in copper cylindrical drums with false bottoms that were packed with charcoal from the oven to keep the pizzas hot.

Here at Big Mario’s New York Style Pizza we’re hella diverse.  You’ve got your tattooed bartenders, you’ve got your tattooed pizza chefs, you’ve got your tattooed pizza lovers, you’ve got your untattooed other people! What’s the common thread? We all love pizza, we all love Capitol Hill in Seattle, and we’re all totally artsy. Some night we should tally all the late night pizza eaters who play in bands, contribute to art shows, or just dabble in their spare time. We’re way into support local culture and that’s why we’re particularly blown away that The Lumineers are playing SNL on January 19. The kicker? It’s in New York City, which is commonly known as the birthplace of pizza and tattoos! We’re gunna tune in, have some Big Mario’s pizza delivery and cheer on our local musicians.
