Our Chicago-style pizzas can take out whole cities. North Korea had better watch themselves.

I meant "South Korea." Sorry. I'm too used to the crazy coming from North Korea.

I am glad to see that they are pushing the realm of pizza into another dimension.

Pizzorito: a supreme pizza, with added cheese if wanted, half cooked then rolled into a burrito, then put back in the oven to crisp a bit and finish cooking.
Now deep fry that.

Your move, korea.

If by "take out a city" you mean render their water treatment plants ruined, yes they can.

I just had Taco Bell for the first time in years.   I was already feeling that that was a mistake.

Then I looked at that "pizza" and threw up a little in my mouth.

Thanks for that.

The Brazilian cheese rolls that it uses for the crust, I've made those before. Quite tasty. They are gluten/grain-free, the batter is easy to make and you bake them in a mini muffin tin.

Gluten is a protein found in wheat and certain other grains. Even in people that aren't allergic, it can cause problems in the digestive tract. When I avoid gluten (and dairy) I tend to feel better, therefore I tend to avoid eating it in large quantities.

/When you are 60 years old and dying of ass cancer because you ate too much gluten, don't come crying to me.

This will call for retaliation from Best Korea.  Best Korea's entry in the contest will be "Grand and Glorious Diet Pizza" which all the laborers in Best Korea love as their pizza of choice.  Here's one fresh from the oven:

This. If there is one country that has a reputation for bland, boring cookie cutter pizzas, it's the US. Nowhere outside of Asia has a real handle on ridiculous pizzas. Seems to me that it's Korea vs. Japan for the title.

Chicago style pizzas isn't pizzas. They're just another kind of food people are to unimaginative to nameSimilar,the sand which I will make with fishsticks now doesn't have a name. That does not make it a pizza either.

I have never understood the need for Koreans to put corn on their pizza. Saw it both times I was over there.

Why on earth would anybody go for pizza in a place where this is the local fare?

When I was over there, there was a shop that sold a pizza with oysters. Shelled oysters. On the pizza. That might be commonplace in pizza-eating countries and I just hadn't seen it before. Doesn't matter. It's just wrong.

That's called the Placebo effect, and it works on all sorts of things.

illogic: Why on earth would anybody go for pizza in a place where this is the local fare?

[www.rantlifestyle.com image 628x423]


The same reason someone living in the USA might go for pizza in a place where a nice juicy rib-eye is the local fare.  Variety.  One gets tired of eating the same meal over and over, no matter how good it is.

I ate plenty of Korean food when I lived over there, and enjoyed most of it.  Some places I went back to again and again.  But I also had my share of pizza, hamburgers, and whatever I could find that was neither Korea nor American.  It's pretty easy to find good (non-Korean) Asian restaurants, like Chinese or Japanese or Vietnamese or what-have-you, and Italian restaurants are pretty popular as well.  Any decent-sized city will have a decent variety of stuff to choose from, before you even consider buying ingredients and cooking for yourself.

If your point was that it would be silly for someone on vacation to try to find pizza when they could eat the local cuisine, I agree with you; it IS pretty silly to look for stuff you can eat at home when you're only in a given country for a short time.  If you actually live there, however, then you don't want to eat the same thing, or the same cuisine, all the time.

If nothing else, it's a way to measure the speed of your metabolism.

/Hmm, I haven't had corn for two days. Better eat more fiber.

they are just sad that their tomato sauce on a cracker is the pizza equivalent  of a greasy limp handshake.
