“ Chicago Pizza is not pizza.. its a casserole ;)” I like pizza AND Chicago “casserole.” 😆

I gotta say; I LOVE LOVE LOVE the melting pot that 🇺🇸 is! Having been to many other countries (and not just the tourist parts), I love that we can enjoy the BEST of other cultures without persecution.

😎

Depends.. if you're calling that casserole "Pizza".. I may have to persecute you :D

I’ll call it whatever gets it on my plate. I like pizza! The only pizza I didn’t much care for was…in Italy. 😝

Do they really even HAVE pizza in Italy??

I was there as a 'kiddo' and.. don't even recall it on a menu, anywhere. My dad.. Sicily.. and somewhere else...we visited. Nope, NO pizza.. lots of penne, farfalle, et al.

ps: Still .. NY pizza is a fave.. (or the kind I make at home in the winter!)

They sure do have pizza in Italy, Sicily, Malta, etc. It's very, very different than what we have here in the USA.

Cook me some, & I'll do the Manicotti !!!! AND Calzones .... I really don't recall pizza in Italy; I was 10 though... Salami & Pepperoni was sold in 'socks' .. ie: casings... I DO remember that.

I brought some to school when we got back, and my nickname became.. Ameroni ... (pepperoni) ...

SMDH..

I'll cook pizza when it's not 90degrees... like now~

Now I start wondering whether there is such thing as American Italian truck drivers. Probably not, because general history of immigration shows that only recent waves of new citizens are forced to chose from a very limited number of professions.

Also, it is funny to read about being loud - my kids told me many times that when their American friends see and hear myself, my wife, other family or just friends speaking Russian, they ask: Are they fighting? Why do the yell at each other? And we have to explain that everything is OK, nobody fights, this is how we normally talk :-)

Anne, I was in Italy on numerous occasions (US Navy) in the late 80’s and there was pizza. But, as was said, not like here. Kind of like how you won’t find General Tsao’s Chicken in China. But they DO have (as of 2009) KFC, and LOTS of them. 😆

Pizza in Italy was... for the longest time.... poverty food. Its what you make when you don't have the money to do anything else. You can find pizza in Italy-- but it is not the grand production we make of it here in the states.

Banks, .. so DITTO. All I can say here.. email in my profile, haha!

Born in NYC .. Jamaica / Queens. @ Big Scott has 'familia' right UP the street!! Yes, we have pix.

My first job was working for a capo of the Bonanno crime family at one of his legitimate businesses. I never knew who he was until he got arrested. When everybody told me, I was surprised because he was a nice guy. Always helped me out when I was in a pickle.

In NY too. When I was a kid I could get 2 slices and a soda for 3 or 4 dollars. That was a great deal for broke me lol

One of my husbands favorite stories is when John Gotti tousled his hair when he was about 7 or 8. Was "running errands" with his uncle who apparently did work here and there.....
