Best country for pizza - but not Italy
I really liked Brazilian pizza I got in Rio, they use a type of cheese (don't know what it is called) that is absolutely delicious.
Please share your best (and worst!) pizza experiences from around the world.
My absolute best pizza experience was in Brooklyn, though I have also had remarkable pizzas in Buenos Aires as well as in Turkey.
I have also ordered pizzas in Thailand and in Vietnam. The delivery service is fast, but don't go there just for the pizza. You'll be disappointed.
Also: pizza in Colombia? Don't get me started.
Hell, there's some really great pizzerias not far from Denver.
In Missouri where I grew up we have a chain called Imo's Pizza which is thin crust, a white sauce and my favorite pizza ever. In Colorado we have Boujo's "Mountain Pies" which are ultra-thick crust and delicious.
When I was in Japan my resident buddy would not take me to a pizza place. He said Japanese pizza is generally so disgusting I should avoid it and eat all the other delicious Japanese foods (of which there are a lot).
I had one as a meal before catching the ferry over to Melbourne and liked it so much that I bought a second to take on the boat with me.
Admittedly, some of my fondness may have stemmed from the fact that they were the first food I ate after 7 days of hiking the Overland Track, but they were some darned good pizzas one way or another.

"Suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either."
The worst? In Micronesia a "pizza" was dough, tomato paste (no seasonings, just tomato paste), and spam. The fancy places put pineapple on it.

The hugely popular kind they sell in New York mostly as 'slices'. The kind where they have half-cooked pizzas with little or no toppings sitting under glass. Then when you order, they grab a slice or two, throw on whatever(usually very limited selection) toppings you want and put it back in the oven to finish cooking. Then you sort of fold it in half to eat it. There's probably a simple name for this style, but as I'm not an east-coaster, I don't know it. Anyway, that's the only type of pizza I don't care for..at all. And I have tried several times.
(psssst. braslvr. You're right. It's crap. But you didn't hear it from me.)
