    Weird. Asians, especially in the U.S., are notorious for taking pics of their food and putting them up on FB, IG and blogs. At a table with Asian friends in a restaurant, you typically don't dig in until the requisite pics have been taken for posting.

    My family typically doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving, but this last year, we made an effort. A lot of American food like stuffed turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce (that wasn't even touched in the end). Instead of taking out the camera to take a family photo, however, people took photos of the food.

    Even when we try to assimilate, we are, at our core, Asian.

    Based on what I've seen from some other prominent and popular Neapolitan makers ( " in person") aside from Rubinacci and Solito,
    it's a good thing that London House adheres to it's English inspriation.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the cornicione char just like the rest of you, but the crust on the bottom side of this pizza is burned. When I was in Naples, not one pizza looked alike, even from the same place.

    Huh, interesting. My parents immigrated from Taiwan back in the 60's. We've always celebrated Thanksgiving. Of course, in addition to turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, etc., we add Chinese things like roast duck, sticky rice, and egg rolls. And we always have a whole fish for good luck. And a ham--because nobody actually likes eating the turkey. In other words, way too much food.

    This thing with taking photos of food is not strictly an Asian thing. It's a yuppie thing. Lots of yuppies are Asian.


    Absolutely agreed. I would be less concerned about what people call "real" Neapolitan, which can mean so many things, and rather learn about what different noteworthy tailors in Naples have done. Then you can make an informed decision about what you want.


    They are always irregular in shape, and this amount of char might be a tad bit more than typical, but you do want the char.

    Damn, that sounds incredible...

    And +1 to the char love. That's half the point. Example above is a bit much, but no char = no flavor.

    Hard to believe fro top photo, but the bottom side was not burned. I was worried too since my 5 year old is going through an extremely picky stage. But, no issues.

    For me, the char is part of the love. Italians love bitterness.
