    I was in Rome and ordered this pizza and it was the oddest but most delicious pizza ever. Olive oil, tomatoes and fresh lettuce and mozzarella.

    Delicious pizza at a small shop in Siena.

    My best pizza tasting experience was the Chicago deep dish pizza in Chicago, believe it or not. It was ridiculous.
