how's the pizza in your country?
How is it compared to the one you tried in Italy? (if you've been here).
I always try Pizza even abroad to make comparisons, sometimes it's pretty good, others complete trash.
i've had authentic italian pizza before and it was so good i shed a tear, everything pizza related i knew was a lie
i've thought about it actually, do you have a good guide or know anyone who did?
Made myself a good one for lunch. It had BBQ sauce instead of pizza sauce, topped with thick cut pepperoni, buffalo chicken, anchovies, onions, mushrooms and pineapple. You guys should try it, just makes sure to drain the pineapple juice or the pizza will get soggy.
ive been to italy and ive also had authetnic italian pizza from people who know how to make it in the states
theres a really good place near me ran by two yuros who make neapolitan style pizza and it's just as good as the pizza I had in italy. they even imported a wood fire oven from italy to make it, it's so good
Certifiably best in the world. I really disliked Italian pizza, but maybe I missed all the good places when I was there. The food improved significantly after we crossed the Austrian border and all bullshit coperto & servizio fees disappeared altogether.
>The fuck would you know about pizza? This isn't a banana thread.
What? we are the masters in pizza making m8
I didn't make that, and the point is that many people just go in the North and talk about Italian pizza but the truth is that there the pizza is as an exported thing as it is outside of Italy. The real pizza is the Neapolitan one, and in general the best pizza is in the South.

I deeply hate terroni, I really wish some deadly pestilence to come and wipe out all of you. Yet I have to agree with you each time i read in the north "Pizzeria Napoletana" I assume they make it with their technique.
Only certain places make pizza like in your post.
we have "kebab pizzas" which are fucking glorious and the only positive thing the dindus have brought to this country
pic related, but it really doesnt do it justice
>what is that jizz on the pizza?
dunno, garlic and some other mild sauce
I suppose it depends on exactly what you mean. If you were talking about Turkish pizza/pide, then they're pretty samey wherever you go, but also generally pretty fuggen good.
But you probably meant Italian-style, so I'll mainly focus on that.
Ones at franchises are decent. Not great, but decent. You get a reasonable amount of toppings and they deliver to your door.
Smaller takeaway and gourmet places are significantly better, though; even if they aren't run by Italians. The ingredients/toppings seem to be of a better standard, the dough is better and they tend to be cooked better, too. But they don't always home deliver. Although it doesn't matter because they're so much better.
It's the best. Since we have absolutely zero shame when it comes to inventing new food we put fucking everything on pizza.
My favourite is with gorgonzola, pineapple, curry powder, banana, peanuts, shrimp, ham, mushrooms and bearnaise sauce
Sometimes I travel to Italy.
and I enjoy your pizza too
it ranges from really good to really shit
but its mostly americanized pizza, even though you might find some authentic places from time to time
my favorite is bbq chicken with jalapenos
better than yours apparently
which country doesn't have kebab pizza?
also yes, we do can order all those eastern/turkish foods too like döner and roll kebab etc and do so regularly. but kebab pizza with smetana is just perfect
>how's the pizza in your country?
In a very bad state. There are some acceptable ones (kebab, some with meat sauce), but they all suffer from plastic cheese and being soggy.
>How is it compared to the one you tried in Italy?
Never been to Italy, however I did eat pizza made by an Italian in Greece and it was fucking awesome. A lot better than Swedish pizza.
Every single pizza I ordered here so far was delivered by some sandnigger and it always tasted like oily assholes
Then I stopped ordering at places which offered any kind of kebab and it got slighty better but now much
Please one of these has to actually be italian
>American "pizza" is good but it's not pizza.
U.S. is massive and Pizza varies on region and in places like NYC the successful Italian American pizza makers left to places like CT (that's where New Haven style is and you can still get their pizza). However, every Greek, Spic, Arab, etc. who wanted to make shit pizza, did just that and coasted off the NYC label.
Also to the Italians, groups like Greeks and Syrians here have warped your "traditional Italian food".
To the Greek immigrants here you need to make Greek food because the Italian "food" you " make" is so gross an inbred hillbilly who never met an Italian could do better.
Keep up the Memes just post Domino's and Uno's deep dish and the them its all we have. Same with fried chicken as KFVCis the best, same with In-nOut burgers, Taco bell is the best Mexican, etc.
I fucking loved Italian pizza. I went there when I was 16 and fucking loved it. Fuckin' Positano man
>mfw you order a prosciutto pizza and its literally one slice of ham laid across a pizza
Also the guy there gave us free house wine even though I was underaged. Better than fuckin pizza hut, where you get a reheated fast food item that is good for parties but otherwise quite mediocre. It depends on the store and day a lot.
There is a local place though (that has closed down, but is moving closer) that is pretty fucking good. I think the owner is Italian and its about half way between American and Italian pizza. Pretty expensive though.
It's not pretentious enough to be a French culinary invention, sorry :^)
>actually be italian
I had Pizza in Deutschland at a restaurant Italians ran (no clue where exactly they were from). It was really bad pizza. You may have to leave the Fatherland for pizza family.
It's different, but not necessarily bad. Colombian pizza brands are awful but the American franchises such as Papa John's are fine. Just different to the Italian ones
What I miss more are things like the authentic mozzarella di buffala (the local one doesn't taste like the original one), prosseco and risotto among others.
Flat breads with toppings are from the east Mediterranean and were incredibly common. In Italy however they used to be sweet with fruits as toppings only later were they savory. So no nothing sounds French.
Its always sort of been a 'cheap' food made from leftover bits of last nights dinner and various other odds and sods.
What I liked about visiting Italy was the amount of decent food for not a lot of money, so all the fancy meats like prosciutto and their home made salamis, proper mozzarella and parmesan cheeses that cost a fortune here are pretty reasonably priced there. So I enjoyed making pizza in Italy when I was staying with friends there- got make your own bases fresh though, that's the key to making it fucking awesome.
>how's the pizza in your country?
We have no good pizza here.
>How is it compared to the one you tried in Italy? I have been there. Tried pizza in the states too.
>I always try Pizza even abroad to make comparisons, sometimes it's pretty good, others complete trash.
In all honesty, the best pizza I've had was in a tiny village in Crete. Idk why but it was just the best.
Would you eat New England "greek" style pizza? Pic related.
Dough made normally except with small bit of olive oil, rises overnight
Thick fluffy bread with a crispy golden brown bottom and crust
Sauce more thoroughly cooked with oregano seasoning
Cheese mix of mozzarella and white cheddar
Cooked in a pan oiled with olive oil
New England also has bar style pizza which is similar but less fluffy more crunch. Also a pan pizza.
yeah, but by a turk.
we also have iskender kebab and that's definitely turkish
fuck... what's the point of this post even? you can order chinese, indian, italian any food basically here
I was eating that pizza on a pier at night and a sea turtle with a head the size of a small pumpkin popped up for air. We had a moment eyeballing each other before he fucked off back to whatever turtles do at night there.
Made me question my life desu.
I had a meal in the 'best' Turkish restaurant in north London once. I ordered this slow cooked mutton joint thing. It was insanely good.
Protip tho. Never tell your Greek mates you've eaten Turkish cuisine. Shunned for months.
Italian pizza is great, I wish we had more of it here. I live in a town of about 250k people and we have many pizzerias, but only one that even vaguely resembles the pizza I ate in Napoli. Most of the stuff in flyover hellholes is cheesy tomato bread, and I'd take Chicago style deep dish over that stuff
The fact that picture is the first result of googling "British pizza" says you're wrong.
Also putting corn on pizza, disgraceful.
More British pizza
I can accept that sourcream-like stuff on pizza, I can imagine it's like blue-cheese dressing. But mustard has gone to far.
There's no such thing as "British pizza" as a distinct thing.
What you get on google images are pictures of bad pizzas people have eaten in Britain. But you knew that already didn't you?
We have chains like Pizza Hut and dominos which basically do American pizza, then pizza express and ask which are more upmarket and do it more like Italian. There are also lots of small independent Italian places which do traditional pizza
Manhattan style > > > everything else
>mfw there are pizzerie napoletane, una pizzeria romana & 10+ new york style pizzerias in my town
Foreign """""pizza"""" is fucking trash... they make shit i wont even call pizza like the tomato pie they eat in chicago or other stuff... i mean they arent pizza anymore.
Only italians can make great pizza,and that's the truth.
I know you're just collecting (You)s, but that attempt just makes americans look even dumber. You guys do it too often and are too terrible at banter to prove that you're pretending.
I've lived for a few months in Italy and their pizza is alright but I think Swedish pizza tastes far better.
My problem with Italian pizza is that its pretty tasteless. They use mozzarella cheese on top which unfortunately doesnt taste much t b h. And their tomato juice is very meh, it tastes like mashed tomatoes in a can - nothing. The tomato juice/sauce needs spices, some sugar, perhaps small Pieces of cheese like pecorino to make tasty.
Their pizza dough is pretty similar to ours but its a bit dryer/harder, ours is often somewhat thicker and more "doughy".
So far Swedish pizza is the best I've had but I've only had it in 5-10 countries.
>all pizzas are the same
>i order only one kind of puzza so it's their fault i dont like it.
Try different pizzerias and ask Gorgonzola instead of mozzarella... dont be an autist Sven
Well the "standard cheese" on all pizzas I've seen and tried in Italy has been mozzarella
The standard cheese on Swedish pizzas is some yellowish goat cheese which is fatter and tastes more
Italian pizzas feels more "fresh" and healthy because of it but tastes less
>Well the "standard cheese" on all pizzas I've seen and tried in Italy has been mozzarella
This is how i know you are lying. .. if you ask only margherita ofc is mozzarella ... have you at least tried other pizzas? Kek
I don't know about the rest of Italy but I disagree with you on the ingredients, at least in Naples. The whole point of it (and a lot of Italian food in general) is that the ingredients are good and you don't need to do that much with it. It's not rocket science.
And even then, you can get plenty of different toppings, you don't need to just eat pizza with fior di latte if you don't want to.
>not eating the original
pizza is great, pide is better
>how's the pizza in your country?
>How is it compared to the one you tried in Italy?
Norwegian pizzas are often a middle ground between new york pan and italian pizzas
