In Northeastern Pennsylvania a pizza is called a "tray" and you get it by the "cut". The humble origins of this style of pizza started out in Old Forge, Pennsylvania during the 1920's as an impromptu way to feed some hungry coal miners at a bar. Close to 100 years later has it not only this spread throughout the region but has become something deeply ingrained within the community.
We will follow the history of this style of pizza and its growth within the region while taking a look at the deep rooted traditions across generations it still has and the significance it holds within the community while examining the challenges faced in working class, blue collar, small town America.
