from Domino’s Pizza
-Oksu (Joongang Heights Apts), Seongdong, Seoul, Korea-
Originating in Italy, pizza has been embraced by many countries throughout the world, particularly the United States. In fact, I would suggest that the globalization of pizza was and continues to be an American endeavor, attributable in no small measure to such worldwide brands as Pizza Hut and Domino’s. The American style of pizza, in terms of toppings and crust and method of preparation and therefore taste, has become dominant outside of Italy and certain parts of Europe.
To avoid confusion, however, I will henceforth attribute (via tag) the origin of all pizzas featured on GMTD to Italy and secondarily to any other country if a non-Italian influence is clear.
