From Wikipedia:

In Brazil, especially São Paulo city (and in Rio as weel I might add) , pizzas are one of the most profitable items of Brazilian food industry. Among them are traditional Neapolitan style pizzas (brought by Italian immigrants) and sort of "new style" pizzas with chocolate and fruits (banana possibly being the most common), among other toppings. It is so important for the city economics that a Pizza Day (July 10) was instituted, with Pizza Championship being one of the most important events of the day, showing new recipes. One of the products of such championship was the border filling with catupiry cheese. Pizza must also be eaten with a knife and a fork; to do otherwise is considered to be bad table manners. Except in Pizza Hut and other pizza franchises, most pizzerias cook the pizzas on a wooden oven, even the small ones. While outside the city of São Paulo it is common to use condiments such as ketchup on a pizza, it is almost considered rude in São Paulo, where the most traditional Italian pizza is made.

A sacred day indeed. Hmmmmm pizza.

Now the vex question: Thin crust or thick crust? At the risk of being labeled a heretic I go for thick crust.

I like Meat Feast the best.

We are very open on that matter, Thick or Thin, it is a personal choice.... as long as you don't place ketchup over the pizza, all else is valid...

Unfortunately I had to see that before in Germany ... it was really shattering...

And one time in Sao Paulo it was pretty cool, this american tourist asked for ketchup for his pizza and the chef who is Italian just kicked him out....

Yayness to the chef! Its a perfectly revolting idea. Coulda been worse, he may have wanted brown sauce, and that's a hanging offence.

As the first member of the Order you are hereby drafted to help me move !!!... Joking ...
Anyway, I am moving on saturday from Wembley to Finchley, I will have a van available as soon as all the stuff is out of my flat, so I basically need help to move all my stuff down, load the van and then unload. If you can help in any of these it would be really good... Priestess Libby shall be there to oversee our work and it will obviously involve a large amount of pizza and outrageous amount of wine ... Well, let me know if you can give a hand, if you are busy it is fine... still welcome to come later on for pizza and wine...
