How is Pizza Eaten Around the World?

There are countless ways to create a pizza. Since pizza is loved universally around the world, different tastes and ingredients can be found topping pies around the globe. In Argentina you can try the Fugazza, a white pizza topped with sweet onions, oregano and Parmesan cheese. In Australia you can try the aptly named “Australian Pizza” which is topped with BBQ, cheese, onions, bacon and fried eggs. You could actually plan a vacation around eating pizza from around the world.

This guide from How Long to Cook Calculators is the perfect place to start! It features 33 vastly different types of pizza from Cuba to Canada, Iceland to India and everything in between.

Italy has many different pizzas on the list from all over the region. In Naples you want to try the Margherita, a flash-baked pie topped with red sauce and slices of mozzarella, with basil, garlic and olive oil. In Rome, you can try the Pizza Bianca which is dough sprinkled with olive oil, sea salt and herbs. You will see these being sold from carts on the street. In Sicily, it is the Sfincione, a thick crust pie topped with bread crumbs, onions and caciocavallo crumbles. In Southern Italy you have yet another choice of pizza to try, the Pizza Rustica which has a flaky crust filled with sausage, ham, pepperoni, ricotta, mozzarella and Romano cheese. And still another option while strolling the streets of Italy is the Pizza quattro stagioni which is a very popular style of pizza that includes various ingredients divided into four equal parts.

Scotland has a very different taste in pizza. There you could get the Pizza Crunch which is a deep-fried version served with salt and vinegar and a brown Worcestershire like sauce. I would be down for trying all of these aside from the Mockba, a cold sardine topped tuna, mackerel, salmon and onion pizza – yuck Russia.
