From my friend Pizza Expert Cary Steiner: Actually, Albert, the Grandma pizza was invented at Umberto's in New Hyde Park, NY, but first marketed by two former employees who opened King Umberto's a few miles away. When Lil and I took Peter Reinhart for his first Grandma's slice, it was Umberto's, not KU. The original Grandma's had basil as a principal herb - the King Umberto's version is more oregano flavored. Both are championship pizzas. The original article on the Grandma's pizza (which has always been highly respected on http://passion-4-pizza.com) was in Newsday and written by Erica Marcus. It's archived at https://www.newsday.com/lifestyle/restaurants/feed-me/grandma-pizza-the-full-story-1.825269
