Hei man! We invented the pizza! Did you ever try a real Italian pizza? I mean, a pizza made HERE in Italy? Expecially, here in Sicily? Or did you try the rubbish made by one some so-called Italian restaurants you can find anywhere in the world, restaurants where there is nothing of Italian exctept the name (usually, Mario's ).

I preferred the Pizza in Korea

I think our Pizza over here is too oily, has way too much of processed shredded ham crap, and half the pizza is crust and fatty heart clogging death! .. lol... Korean pizza looked healthy, tasted healthy and was healthier Sorry my friend, i give our pizza the thumbs down
