But more importantly, it's not a different name but a spelling difference. Someone from the US or the UK would likely spell the fjords in NZ with a 'j'.
If you were asked to name a country 'that has the colors of red, white, and blue on its flag' then the United Kingdom would still be an acceptable answer, despite it being spelt 'color' and not 'colour'.
And yes it is hard to attribute something to one "person" because most things are made from pre-existing components (without electricity, no tv) I dont think anyone would say they invented the telephone.
I think I might prefer the US ones though. Better dough to topping ratio. Sometimes it feels like I am just eating a whole lot of dough.. Though the NY style ones I have had Wére extreeemly greasy though, and incredibly salt (like your monthly intake lol, I am a salt lover, but they were just barely within the limits of being edible..). Not sure if that is a common thing or just from the NY pizza delivery. I have a feeling the greasy thing is (going by what I see on tv) but the saltiness might not be the common thing.
The innovations in New York were making a pie with a semi-rigid (you call it floppy, but try eating he ones in Naples they are barely cooked there) crust cooked golden brown, cut into triangles, with sauce, cheese and toppings distributed and spread evenly over the whole pie, such that you could take one slice and easily consume it while holding it in your hand or on a paper plate. Nearly every single pizza I have ever ordered in my life, be it in Seoul, Manila, Riyadh, Tel Aviv, Athens, Moscow, London, Rome, Bangkok, Miami, or Los Angeles have all fit this description. There are a couple of exceptions to this rule.
2. Chicago-style pizza which I've had in Chicago and elsewhere which is really more like a quiche. Made with a deep-dish cornmeal crust.
3. this one place I used to order from in Croatia where they didn't cut the pie, but in all other ways was still much more similar to New York pizza than Naples pizza.
and a few pies here and there that were square-cut... but still cut
Very well said and I'm glad that we could have this breakthrough together.
My facts are based on facts. They are not subjective and have nothing to do with how delicious I found the food anywhere that I lived before. The food known as "pizza" that is famous and popular around the world was invented in Little Italy in New York City. It was based on similar foods that predate it, enjoyed by Italian immigrants (and their descendants) in America, and before that Greek immigrants (and their descendants) in Neapolis, and others before that in Greece and elsewhere, each generation making their own innovations along the way. But the food known as "pizza" that is famous and popular around the world today was first produced in New York.
Stamp your feet and shout "NO!" all you like. That's similarly compelling to your "I lived there and liked the food" argument.
