Pizza in Italy--yuck! Mon, 06/11/07 11:03 PM (permalink)
Italy needs to learn how to make pizza from us Americans. On a trip to Italy some years ago, we had pizza in Rome near the Colliseum. It was served to us cold (they heated up pizzas for the locals who came in after us but somehow ours weren't). The dough was heavy and tasteless, and pretty much ranked below Chuck E Cheese. So to avoid making the same mistake in Florence, we ASKED the locals for the best pizza joint, and they directed us to a pizza house that was packed with locals. OK, so the pizza was slightly better, came on a thin crust, so thin--almost as thin as a flour tortilla. The topping were bland and skimpy, as was the cheese. So you can imagine how the rest of our dining experiences in Italy went--spaghetti, risotto, lasagne, etc. Give me a good Italian restaurant in any downtown USA anyday!
