M-G, I was talking specifically about soups. Go to the Baxters of Speyside website as an example. Generally, I don't rate Scottish food so highly (fish and soup being the exception).
In the way you were meaning it, we are wizards at making something out of nothing. Stovies, Tattie Scones, Haggis, Mealy Pudding, Black Pudding...the list goes on of food basically made from leftovers and non-prime cuts. And M-G, you were missing out by not trying haggis, it's delicious (and deep fried mars bars are a running joke to most people in Scotland).
But back to Pizza. I love pizza! I love Italian style pizza, cooked in no time at all with a thin crust and a wee bit of fresh mozarella, garlic and oregano. I love polish pizza with the sweeter tomato sauce and mountains of toppings. I love my deep fried pizza out the chippy. I love my cheap spicy chicken and sweetcorn pizza out the late night pizza shop that is only half cooked and so delicious. I love chain pizzas, greasy pizzas, doughy pizzas, thin pizzas...
...are we getting the point?
Personally my favourite pizzas are the traditional Italian pizzas with minimal toppings. However I would love to go to Chicago and get a full on deep dish bad boy. To follow on from an earlier post...let's arrange a world pizza and beer tour...now THAT would be awesome.
