Pizza Americana: Says Who?

Where: Italy
June 30, 2008 at 12:00 PM | by | ()

America's guilty of a few heinous pizza crimes. Domino's, CiCi's and Pizza Hut should all be serving life sentences for terrorizing our waistlines with stuffed crusts and unlimited toppings, not to mention annoying commercials. But none of the US violations of pizza code go as far as Italy's "Pizza Americana."

It's not pizza and it's not American, but rather a caloric masterpiece of French fries, hot dogs, oil and cheese. While it makes us gag, Italian kids go bananas for the stuff, which isn't helping the rising child obesity rate Italy.

Don't get us wrong, we're all for fusion cuisine. But to create such a cringe-worthy pizza and then claim that it hails from America is not OK in our book. Why not just layer on some crumbled cellulite and sliced saddlebags to really give it that extra kick?
