I have always known pizza sans tomato sauce (my preferred type) as blonde pizza. The best, in my opinion, can be got at the Cheeseboard Collective in Berkeley, California. Cannot be beat.

As a New Yorker, I am a pizza snob. No to pineapple, mayo and other abominations. BUT I am embarrassed to admit that I had an AMAZING mashed-potato pizza from Ottos in Portland, ME. I just didn't call it pizza. I called it "mashed potato pie". Try it if you are in the area.

Things to try out next: flammkuchen / tarte flambée from Alsace. The version with crème fraîche tends to be better.

Or... if you prefer to be shocked, go for the Icelandic banana pizza, or the Swedish "Africana" which has bananas, pineapple, curry and a few other things.

This is general knowledge? xd

Most of the questions are about or for americans and the italians names like "pizza bianca" are not respected.

Sorry but didn't like this quizz.

Awesome the question of the pi*z*z*a though, really liked it.

Pepperoni is technically salami (literally only used in America) so u should accept both. You're insulting Italian people if you're calling salami pepperoni.
+2
Level 78
Sep 17, 2021
The question asks about toppings popular in the US. The type of salami people like in the US is called pepperoni. Therefore, the best answer is obviously pepperoni, but you're assuming Italian people wouldn't be able to follow this straightforward logic for some reason.

A comment from an Italian, born and raised in Italy (which doesn't mean that what I say it's necessarly the Truth...): pizza without tomato sauce it's a real thing here. Pizzerias in Italy have two separate sections in their menus for red pizzas and white pizzas. You are free to order a pizza from the red section but without tomato sauce, and viceversa, typical example the four cheeses pizza which is usually a white pizza - no one gets offended!

But, "Pizza bianca" in Rome means or may mean something else which is similar but not identical to the focaccia in other regions/areas in Italy. Typical in Rome is pizza bianca with mortadella.

You can get pizza with mortadella and with quite everything you may think of, except for pineapple - that is very offensive.

I didn't get offended about the pepperoni question, as replied to that comment, it clearly says in the US.

Talking about offending Italy about pizza toppings: in many countries they use ketchup instead of tomato sauce
