    I always buy good quality dried packet pasta, and i agree it is better than "fresh" packet stuff. Homemade Italian pasta in Italy is best I've had though.

    On its menu the local takeaway lists something called a 'London Pizza'.

    I'm informed that this is literally a chip pizza. A cheese and tomato pizza with chips on it.

    Not shaped like Tower Bridge or featuring the Queen's head. Just a pizza with chips on it. £4.50.

    Id say i was shocked, but they have chips with their full english down there dont they. If that was a true London pizza though it should be £14.50

    Eeew no fucking way.
    Eat there once (the one at St. Peter's Square)
    And i developed severe food poisoning (salmonella)
    Which lead me to collapse whilst waiting for a tram home, and I was rushed to the Hospital.

    Would never eat at Papa John's ever again.

    As for their rivals (Dominos)
    It's overpriced yet has on occasions been nice (considering its a chain)
    Haven't bought Domino's for years now though due to the rip off price and one occasion spending £15 on a pizza for it only to be burnt and cold :/

    Now I tend to go to restaurants which specialise in Pizza, and find myself spending similar money as I would at a Domino's.

    Croma in Prestwich, and Double Zero Neapolitan in Chorlton

    I'm back in the north east these days. £14.50 is a deposit on a three bedroomed semi.

    According to a YouGov survey Mushroom is the UKs favourite pizza topping.... Where did they do this survey?! Mushroom was first, then ham, then peppers.... weirdos.

    Nicest pizza I ever had was from a small takeaway in Thornton Heath, Sarf London. I only wanted something to fill me up after a long day of travelling and couldn't believe how nice it was.

    Dominoes is alright but I prefer Papa Johns, I like lots of cheese plus extra cheese and then some chicken and that will do me.

    I think a good pizza is one where the slices don't droop when held by the outside crust

    I live in Bedford which has a large Italian population and so good pizza is easy to come by. The oddest sight is probably the Pizza Express; you look at it among all the authentic family-run Neapolitan pizzerias and bakeries and just wonder why they bothered sticking a pizza chain restaurant in this of all towns.

    I love a capricciosa/valentino (ham, mushroom, olive) and a fiorentina (spinach with an egg on top), but really if the pizza is well-made and of good quality then you can't really beat a margherita. There's a little bakery near where I live that supplies all the restaurants and markets with bread during the day, and then makes pizzas in the evening, and their margherita is so good that putting toppings on it just spoils it.

    I used to travel to Naples a lot and one time my friends there took me to what is considered the best pizzeria in Naples. One thing that struck me was that their calzone - which in this country is usually just a pizza folded over - was fried. Bloody delicious it was, too.
