take that chicago, with your unfoldable, deep dish pile of ingredients. that ain't no pizza.

and thank you, luca. i've had the arguement many times that baked pizza dough topped with a sauce, maybe herbs or even meat - but no mozz - is just a focaccia.

Thank you! Cheers to that! 3 toppings max and no thick bases or cheddar ever!

I have to investigate more thoroughly on this subject.
We have a lot of "pizza/pane" ready to eat products, sold in shops (not restaurant style), I think literally hundreds of them, with different names, and different food with the same name... It's an ordeal!
I will try to understand the story behind all this beautiful and tasty mess!

I may not have to go out of country to find good world quisine, but I'd still have to drive a minimum of five hours to get it. :( Or find recipes, order the ingredients online and make it at home. :)

Has anyone ever seen the movie, The Shrimp on the Barbie, with Cheech Marin as a waiter working in a Mexican restaurant located in Sydney, Australia? Every cuisine is available in every civilized country. That's what makes the world go 'round.

From the movie:

Carlos: Hey, do you mind if I use that stick?
Alex: What stick?
Carlos: The one that's up your butt!


I agree with you. In almost every country in the world, you can find authentic foods from any other country if you look hard enough. The bigger the city, the more likely it is that you'll find a real good restaurant that serves the dish you ate while in the country of it's origin.
