    The base looks too 'bready' and not done in a proper wood-fired oven [mandatory for creating an authentic pizza], and there's nowhere near enough fresh tomato sauce or (fresh buffalo) mozzarella cheese.

    *THIS* is an authentic pizza:



    Or a similar example, but bigger picture:



    Note the difference!

    Anyway, I'm not surprised about the olive oil, as they have the right climate and conditions there to produce quality stuff, and it won't have travelled far.

    Noted on Copacabana beach. The concrete jungle surrounding it is unfortunately representative of the times we live in. Like you say, it would've been nice to have seen it/been there in the 60s! I also take your point about the network of shops not being "nice".

    It may not be 'pretty', in a tourist sense, but that's what makes it REAL, and I love that, as it's where you'll find the locals, which all adds to the colour and vibe of genuine Brazilian life. If we ever visited there, those are the sorts of places we'd be hanging out in

    Plus, before we went, we'd have learned how to speak a few words of Spanish...

    Anyway, major respect for finding a hi-fi shop Was it any good?

    Marco.
    No it is pizza. Just because yours looks bigger and a bit puffed up and burnt around the edges does NOT make it any better.

    I have eaten loads of pizza in various parts of the world including Italy like many people and made it.

    You can't see the underside. It was brilliantly charred from the authentic, elaborate wood fired pizza oven it was made in. It was an inferrno in the room it was made in. So much so my wife had to get out.

    All the key ingredients were bang on.

    Just leave it at that Marco I don't see a need for an argument. But you are wrong. It tasted amazing, one of the best I have ever eaten, including examples that look very like your photo.

    I have noticed you go too much on appearance without any idea of how stuff actually tastes. You simply cannot tell from photos. Consider that without any intended offence.

    We need a pizza fight emoticon, LOL.

    Now that isn't pizza but each to his own.

    BTW I think the pizza shot I posted does look a bit shite. It's half mauled and cut up. But it was ace.

    It's not an argument, daftee; it's a friendly discussion!

    The base is more 'puffed up' in my example because the dough has been kneaded correctly (more air allowed in), thus it has risen properly, which in turn makes the base both lighter and crispier - exactly as an authentic pizza should be, and I say that as an Italian!

    If the one you showed was served in Italy, to a native Italian, they'd chuck it at you, trust me!

    You're entitled to your opinion dude, but I'm not wrong, so on this occasion we'll just have to agree to disagree

    Marco.

    Here's an authentic 'puffed up' pizza (with fresh rocket leaves) I enjoyed this summer when I was in Italy [taken from my holiday pics thread]:



    Light, thin and crispy, with plenty of fresh Buffalo Mozzarella and tomato sauce - and PUFFED UP to fuck

    That doesn't really resemble what you had dude, sorry.

    Marco.
