In Italy, if you're expecting to get a pizza and grab a piece off of the pizza your family ordered to share, then you should know a different routine. First of all, you do not get served with one pizza in the middle for all to share. You get each a different pizza and eat it personally. It is true that the pizzas are big, but two pizzas are too little to serve our family of five. Second, you have to cut your pizza with a fork and a knife, not with a pizza slicer. Italian style eating is different too because you're supposed to cut the pizza and eat it with a fork not pick it up with your hands.
A couple of days ago, I had a winning pizza called Maialona, meaning a big pig pizza: sausage, hot dog, ham and pepperoni. It was so good I was reluctant to share.
If you love lots of crust, know they do the complete opposite of deep dish. Pizza crust is very thin in Italy. Pizza is very good in Italy.
