    they don't look bad, it's only potato though? they look suspiciously whiter than what they should

    now I should start a long babbling about how you barbarians do not understand that pizza and pasta are sacred and that empires have risen and fallen because of an overcooked pizza or of a wrong garnishing on the Emperor lover's gnocchi, but I'm lazy, so I'll just link my blogs

    now look, that pizza doesn't look that bad.. the problem here is, as I tried to explain in my blog, that in most places (included in Italy) people do not actually eat pizza, but rather focaccia with garnishing above it. This is understandable, I mean it's a quick piece of meal that you can flavor with many different things, but that's not really pizza.

    That being said, even between the actual kinds of pizza there's a distinction, however few features are common:

    - it has to be thin and soft, and you have to eat it with fork and knife
    - it has to have a very fast cooking and it has to be eaten hot
    - it doesn't have to have too many stuff on it, either in quantity and in differentiation (not too many flavors)

    the crust is sometimes thicker, sometimes thinner, but the center has to be thin and soft; since you have to eat it hot, you don't want to have a takeaway pizza (that's barbaric, but sadly it happens here as well) and the simplest ones are the better ones, IMO

    look at the video below (use english subtitles, they work surprisingly well with Italian, good job YT )



    In particular watch from 7 and onward.. well that's what a pizza should look like.. I mean 55 seconds of cooking

    @Warman, that looks MUCH better than the last one .

    @Flinn, one of the restaurants I worked at made Pizzas like that. They were really good but I still think I prefer the 'american' style pizza.

    Interesting video and post Flinn. I forgot about the Focaccia! Hopefully whenever I make it to Italy, next year sometime Iím looking at, I get to have real Italian food . Here we have places that say weíre authentic and that but in reality not really.

    Only twice I been to a place where the owner was from that particular country. 45 minutes from my house this old Hungarian woman who since passed ran a Eastern European place and I had cow tongue as a appetizer. There was a place in Virginia where I think the owner was from Italy, and one place by me, actually makes 3 then . But yeah itís hard to find true pizza or pasta. One place by me their sauce is way to sour for my taste.

    So hereís a batch of photos from the past year which sums up what I got . Pizza from two other places, chicken Marsala, cheesecake, custom chocolate box I had picked for me, etc.

I mean this is a crime against humanity, the burn at the stake is what should await them.

    Eating such things is blasphemy, a insult to the gods of Pizza.
