NOT on pizza. That seems to be a distinctly German thing. You will almost never find corn on pizza in the US, and when you ask for it, they look at you like you ordered cat-meat on your pizza.

Strangely enough, the Japanese have gotten the corn thing right, probably by coincidence.

I was eating corn on my pizzas as a student in England back in the late 90's.

There's plenty of corn in most american pizzas... it's just not a topping.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

Speaking of pics Lam, I don't think the MacNN forums are satisfied with the up-to-date pics that you posted. Perhaps one from within 23.99 hours from this post would be more appropriate.

I have the same aversion to chicken on pizza. It doesn't belong on pizza. Especially with BBQ sauce. Wtf?

Pizza is the best. If my SO did not like pizza that could be a dealbreaker, as they say.

Oh, well now that you've said you have a medical condition and losing weight is a necessity, I change my opinion. I'd say go apologize to her and thank her for having the strength to make sure you do the right thing.

Forget the pizza. Your health is more important.

That, IIRC, was the original point of pizza - look through the larder, and anything still edible that needs to go gets thrown on the pizza.

I'm guessing they are streaming this. I might just need to eat pizza while I watch it on my lunch break.

I'll drop a piece on the floor to pay tribute to my fallen homies.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

So, have you decided what you're going to be doing tomorrow?

- Exert your independence, break your diet, ignore your GF's commitment to your health and eat pizza for the keynote?
- Respect your GF's commitment to your health, stay committed to your diet and eat carrot sticks for the keynote?

Those pizzas look disgusting to be honest. If you want pizza porn, how about this:

Geee, the Italians already think us Germans are clueless about `real' pizza, how can the Japanese do this to us and add to our bad rep?
