    They make excellent pizza in R.J. and B.A., too - especially in Buenos Aires which has a huge segment of its population being of Italian heritage.

    No.  If they give me the tickets and an expense account I'd be glad to visit Rio and B.A. and take my camera!
     
    Hell, I'd even take pics of beef that tastes like beef!

    If you go to Rio don't waste your time eating pizza!  Go to a churrascaria and get some real food......and don't forget the camera!

    Aside from the Chicago, New York, and Rome pizzas in situ, I've also had lahmacun in both Ankara (where they call it "Turkish pizza") and Yerevan, and tarte flambee in Strasbourg. They are all delicious, but I'm not sure I'd consider the Turkish/Armenian and Alsatian dishes as "pizza."
     
    My husbands makes spectacular sfincione, with the ingredients described in the article.  Very simple; very good.

    On my five visits to that wondrous city I only visited a churrascaria once.  "Down there" they aren't the 'high end places' that they are in the U.S.  The one I ate at was two blocks in from the beach and wasn't air conditioned.  The 'sweat-sweats' added to the 'meat-sweats' was not a pleasant experience, so I usually opted for a filet at a 'white tablecloth' place.  As a Chateaubriand for two meal with all the trimmings only runs $20 in such establishments I think you see my reasoning.
     
    Pizza there is kind of a late afternoon 'snack' one gets (together with a few caipirinhas) before a little nap to prepare oneself for the evening.

    We drank caipirinhas on the beach in the afternoon with much swimming and walking the beach, and a lunch of freshly caught fish that was being hawked by some fisherman and cooked at the cabana where we were sitting, along with rice and vegetables.  I never ate at a "high end" restaurant, we usually ate outside.......fish.  We did eat at a churrascaria once in Rio, but the best one was in Belo Horizonte....Fogo de Chao.  But I never saw or ate pizza.  I was with all Brazilians and they never once mentioned pizza.  But we ate some great feijoada!!!!!

    Did you know that it is an insult in Brazil to touch your pizza?  You are supposed to use a knife and fork.
     
    I warned my niece of this after reading about Brazilian etiquette when she was about to leave to live for six months with a host family in Brazil.  She forgot and was immediately chastised by her host mother when she picked up her first slice of Brazilian pizza.  She also wasn't sure what to do with the mayonnaise served with the pizza.

    In Rio most all the outdoor cafes along Av. Atlantico (Copacabana) have pizza on the menu.  One curiosity to this economist is why seafood - especially shellfish - is so very expensive relative to beef.  Typically, if a filet mignon is one the menu for $12, Camarones Sao Paulistas are $36.

    I've had 9 of the 12 listed there and I must say that Armenian "pizza" is my favourite, especially if it's from the bakery in the Old City in Jerusalem. Drizzled with a bit of lemon juice...ooooh, man! All the others are good, too, altho I'm not big fan of the pizza casserole from Chicago.

    I never thought the Brazilians were against touching anything.......especially each other on the beach!

    That's not a problem. We're much to polite too call attention to such a faux pas.

    In Naples, Italy the Neapolitan pizza is supposed to be eaten with knife and fork. It is served uncut.
