    The first kosher pizza shop in the world opened in Jerusalem in 1847, opened by the grandson of a talmid of the gra, named Moshe Kucheloffen. They made Venetian style pizza.

    Well, maybe as a subtle mussar lesson, “im eshkocaich Yerushalayim…” not to forget Jerusalem even during our gastrodelights!

    Don’t believe popa’s naarishkeit. The real reason is because a real pizza pie (not that square nonsense) resembles a shtreimel.

    I happen to recall a certain nonsensical pizza shop in midtown that only has square pizza. It is pretty good.

    PBA: That was the weirdest pizza I have ever eaten. Quite good, but incredibly cheesy and very expensive. My family wasn’t entirely sure what to make of it.

    Popa clearly made up his answer, but he is close. The first pizza pie was made in America back in 1692 in Salem Village, Mass. by a group of teenage girls. The townspeople (correctly) assumed that such an amazing culinary invention was ung-dly and could have only come from the devil and consequently these girls, imbued with the knowledge of the devil, must be witches. They were put on trial and sentenced, though some did escape and went on to create a new village in New England to freely practice their creative witchcraft called Salem’s Lot. (Side note here- as many people know, the very next foodthing they tried to invent turned out to not be a foodthing at all but instead caused the people who were there to test it to never be able to eat food again. They developed a taste for circulatory fluid instead.)

    After pizza was declared to be devilish, no g-d fearing christian would stand for it and only the Jews continued to make it in secret (These Jews later became known as Marinaros, named after the sauce they used between the dough and the topping. Some of them moved to Spain after that to open pizza shops there). When the Founding Fathers learned that Jews were still making this food in their basements, they immediately added a footnote to the Constitution requiring all pizza made by Jews to be labeled “Salem’s Pizza”, so that g-d fearing christians would know it was devilish and not try it (Salem was a word everyone recognized, pizza was a more obscure word). The Jews added back the prefix to the name Salem (Jerusalem) to help boost sales. This was ruled by an appelate court to be legally sound (even back then the Jews were ripping through the Constitution). Hence, every Jewish pizza shop is named Jerusalem Pizza (or ‘2’ since that is also legal). Even the ones that are not named so on their business cards still must have the words Jerusalem Pizza printed on the counter or behind it. Next time you are in a pizza shop look for it.

    The law was removed from the Constitution in 1954 out of embarrassment (they no longer believed in witches, the devil, or in G-d). But it can still be seen in the original copy, which they keep moving around the country so that you can never see it. “Oh, did you come here to see the Constitution? It just was removed from this museum an hour ago. Its going to be in transit for the next nine months while Congress takes summer vacation and then it will be viewable in Area 51 for one week. Yes, you do need military clearance to get in, but you don’t need military clearance to view the document, no. Why don’t you try Boston? Yes its a boat, but most people don’t know the difference. Thank you for visiting, hahaha.”)

    They are named so because their owners named them so. That is all.

    Is it not because the pizza shop owners are Israeli? Maybe they opened their first pizza place in Yerushalayim, and hence called their USA shop, Jerusalem 2.
