The worst pizzas I've ever eaten were in Italy, but I'm sure if that I had been raised on that style of pie I would think most American style pizzas were abominations.  Plus as an obvious tourist we probably got crappier food than locals do-actually I know this for a fact.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

I never noticed this.  The food as well as the service was always top notch.  Both on the mainland and Sicily.

Outside of the States the worst pizza I ever had was in Athens. However, none of us had had any in nearly a year so we scarfed it up and returned to the restaurant day after day. Ever since I have been partial to onion pizza- which is all they served.

The BEST was in Stockholm. It might have been the finest I've ever had. How those Swedes managed to make such a fabulous pizza is beyond me. But they did.

I also had the best lasagna in Copenhagen. It looked and was served exactly like the lasagna in Northern Italy- which was pretty darn good. Better than American casserole style.

Now there's a beer town. I was there for a Drupal conference and spent pretty much all of my downtime at "Brewpub." Oh, and Mikkeller did a custom beer called "Awesomesauce" for our conference. Basically an IPA with Lychee. Lychee, btw, is fantastic in those super hoppy beers. Fan. Tas. Tic. Copenhagen also has great hot dogs. Rød Pølse. *Beavis & Butthead Laugh* You said Rød Pølse.

Sorry had to rub it in  ;D

All that proves is that survey takers are idiots :)

Or from Chicago. Honestly, I don't get the rivalry. They're two equally delicious styles of pizza. I vote to end the two-pizza system - this rabid partisanship is tearing our great nation apart!

Pizza is like beer in that there are times I prefer a deep dish pie and other times I want a thin crust NY style pizza.
When it's cold outside I like to warm up with a rich RIS while in the hot summer months I prefer a Pils.

It all depends on the time and the place and the mood I'm in.

I had a pizza in Germany that was "American" style. It had corn on it.  ???

I had pizza in Eastern Europe. They give you a bottle of ketchup with your pizza. Ask them why and they will tell you its for pouring on. "Its very American" YIKES!

Clearly they are confused.
Beer, its whats for dinner.

I can only think of three ways I use ketchup.

On fries.  On burgers.  Making bbq sauce.
