Nah, I’m still pretty sure pizza originates from Italy. But this hilarious mockumentary created by Mr. Pizza, a Korean pizza chain, is a clever ad campaign centered around the concept that this pie of cheesy goodness originated in Jinju, Korea. According to the ad, Marco Polo stole the idea from the Koreans. He probably stole the concept of spaghetti from Chinese noodles, too.
As a die-hard fanatic of this Italian dish, I love to check out different cities’ and countries’ interpretations of it. It’s interesting to see how each place uses different toppings unique to its cultural cuisine. While I have to give it to Brooklyn, NY, for having the best pizza, I am a huge fan of the Japanese versions. When I visited Japan a few years ago, Emily introduced me to Japanese pizza that had mochi as a topping. While it may sound strange, it’s actually delicious and I crave it all the time! What country is your favorite pizza from?
