Lievito, a gourmet pizza restaurant and wine bar in Beijing, China, represents one end of the pizza spectrum. The elegantly designed restaurant is clearly put together for the high class crowd, with smooth speckled granite and minimalist chairs making up the interior decor, but this isn't to say that pizza always needs to be presented as such.

Pizza is interesting in that it was first created as peasant food. Indeed, the first pizza was sold on the streets of Italy to local workers in need of a quick snack, but the dish eventually made its way to the upper classes when Queen Margherita of Italy took a liking to it. Pizza still crosses that class-based divide today, serving as both a cheap delivery meal for cash-poor college students and a fancy dinner for the well-heeled.
