Pizza Pizza

Pizza is of course an Italian institution. The pizza here in Italy is nothing like it is in the US though. When you get a pizza here, you get a small/medium size pie all for yourself as opposed to the US where you get a large pie that everyone has to share - assuming that everyone can agree on the toppings. We eat quite a bit of pizza here as you can imagine. There are a couple pizzerias in town and they're all good. My personal preference is pizza with olives and sometimes mushroom. The wife prefers something with a lot of vegetables and one or two kinds of meat:

BTW, the best pizza in Italy - and probably in the world - is in Naples. That's where pizza was invented, and a good authentic Neapolitan pizza is an art form.
