Pizza; is it only in Sweden?

The plastic tub of "salad"

I've had some in Rome, Milano, Como and on the riviera.

Do you have to be so nasty just because I was wondering?

So many Brits and Americans on here think they know what pizza is.

I particularly like how you could order pizza per metre in Italy.

You can get some awful pizza in Italy too. smile.gif


Keithy, I certainly never saw any thick crust in Italy that's for sure.

Swedish pizzas are a multi cultural thing that can be tasty. They might not ressemble Italian pizzas, but Swedish meatballs do not ressemble Swedish ones in the US.

@Streja

There are actually alot of Americans that know what real pizza like they have in Italy is like. We have a ton of Ítalian-Americans and whole neighborhoods and sections of cities where people still speak italian and make food (pizza included) just like they do back in Italy.

@Keithy

Digging is what Streja does best. It's eaiser to insult random people or groups of people than to actually make a post that contributes to the conversation. laugh.gif

indeed the best pizza is the simple straightforward pizza in Napoli, where it was probably "invented". Flour, tomatoes, cheese and oil...poverty food. America, like with SO many things, went quite over the top with pizza.

The saddest thing about "Swedish" pizzas is that they make me think that Pizza Hut is good.

I think you have to stop think of pizza in terms of Italian food wink.gif

I was shocked when I arrived - but now I go with the flow - steak and bernaise/chicken curry and pinapple/kebab and chips pizza - bring it on wink.gif

I agree with Mesost.

American-Italian pizza is not really Italian.

Yes, but the discussion was based on diversity and lack of choice regarding different styles.

There are more variations in Sweden than in Italy.

It has taken me 18 months, but I have finally found a pizza that I like!!! My neighborhood (turkish) pizza shop has a (not kidding) Turkish pizza on the menu that is pretty tastey. I just have them leave off the pepperoni (which to me is a jalapeno pepper) and add more skinka (which approximates US pepperoni). I also go to the American Pizza place, but they don't use enough sauce, so the pizza is quite dry.

Rick hehe, once I was with a group of loud Italians here in Sweden. We went to this pizzeria and they absolutely detested the pizzas.
