Oregano became popular in America after soldiers returned from World War Two. Soldiers who had served in Italy got their first taste of oregano sampling pizzas. Once the war was over, Italian food went from being a niche cuisine found only in Italian neighborhoods to becoming an integral part of the American diet.
