What’s the most Italian American thing that you can think of?
For me, the first thing that pops to mind is pizza. Whether baked with a thick, thin or stuffed crust, with one or many toppings, pizza is almost as American as it gets. If one disregards its heritage, one could be forgiven for thinking that the popular flatbread had been invented in the U.S.A. The truth is that what the Italians call pizza is so vastly different from the American dish of the same name, like the difference in their respective cultures.
