As long as some muppet doesn't put ketchup on it...

one can buy 'pizza ketchup'. not sure if it is for the base or to be used as a topping/sauce

For the tanginess the vinegar in the ketchup provides.

Ah the old familiar chronic zurek flavour quest maybe.

DE may have a point but I find a pizza to be a wash (awash with flavour) of flavours without ketchup. Ketchup is fine on a margerita but nowt else.

People from uptight countries just don't understand the practice.

Nah, people from countries with a more...sophisticated pallet prefer that their pizza doesn't need ketchup added.

Anyway, what would you know, seeing as you've never been to Poland?

Please don't start this in every thread.

What's to understand anyway? It's so like ... bohemian and nouveau LOL

Anyway wait a minute - uptight countries? Coming from an American ? Albeit one that seems to think all Brits wear bowler hats and play cricket?

Oh, you're good DE.

Do the French put Beajoulais on theirs? Probably not ;)

I've liked the pizza wherever I've been. I miss some of the Scottish places but the Polish ones are pretty much the same. In Japan they were good too.

Was that what you signed at the border? Reason for stay? Pizza ;) ;) I can just imagine the look on the faces of those who work in administration here. Why do you want to extend your stay in Poland? Oh, because of the pizza :) :)

no offense, but for that kind of food, the further to the south in europe, the better it gets. closer to the original and keeps its characteristics known for. ;)

++++

And people who think pizza + ketchup are a good idea shouldn't talk about the best pizza in the world, lol.

[OK, let's try this again: my first attempt at this post went terribly awry.]

This is a Chicago-thin-crust-style pizza made in America by one of Polish descent from a recipe based on one used at an Italian pizzeria. (The picture came out a little darker than the pizza actually was.)

I'd pick this tasty looking pizza, as opposed to a pizza drenched in ketchup any day.

And this is a pizza from Napoli:

Pizza is a simple dish made from fresh, good ingredients. Fresh tomatoes and herbs, good olive oil, buffalo mozzarella, baken in a brick oven.

We Russians, also love our ketchup to be served with pizza. Mmmmm... delicious.

First photo is a photo of a very delicious looking Polish pizza I found online. Second is a delicious Russian pizza - with ketchup of course.

I recognise a rather unusual ingredient on it. Do you know what I mean?

Of course, I don't know what you mean.

Tell us the ingredients of your "Russian" pizza. :):):)

Oh this is simple. We have sanctioned pepperoni, mushrooms from the cellar, olives that we grow in greenhouses, and ketchup!

mushrooms from the cellar

Called oyster mushrooms. Don`t you fry them before putting on the pizza base? Baking the pizza in the oven is not enough to cook these thick fleshy mushrooms properly. They will be half raw.

For pathetic Western digestive systems, perhaps.

Being a NYC resident, have you ever had a slice from Lombardi's? It's in Bowery or near it, close to CBGB's. Flipping good stuff. I think it's the place that claims to be the first pizzeria in America.

In Poznań there's a place called Forni Rossi that is one of the Top 5 pizzas I've ever had - and I've had a lot of pizza-and they do NOT dabble in the sacrilege of putting ketchup on their pizza.

Ketchup on pizza. Drives me to pray an entire battery of novenas for atonement of such a sacrilege.

I have, but it's quite far from my apartment and so I have to make an effort to go there. Never ordered delivery from there either. One place I like, out of the "famous" places - is "Artichoke Pizza" down in NYU-land below Washington Square Park. They're famous for their artichoke slices, but also have normal style pies. It sounds terrible, but an artichoke pizza is actually not bad.

Pizza in Moscow is also quite good. I was only poking fun above. Most of the ketchup pizzas disappeared in Moscow by the 2010s. I'm sure it's the same in Poland.

In general - ketchup is good, ketchup is life. At least to us, in Russia, it was a symbol of something exciting and new when everyone first started trying it. Some compared it to our Georgian salsa-like condiment - Adjika. Others claimed they could make it at home, better than Heinz, by using some homemade recipe involving tomato paste, vinegar and salt (imho these experiments always failed).

As a kid I put ketchup on everything. Didn't matter if it was savory, sweet, bitter. I could probably eat ice cream with ketchup on top, back then. If stocks of provisions were low, I would often happily eat some bread with ketchup on it. If I was feeling very wealthy indeed, I would squirt a quarter bottle of ketchup, and a quarter bottle of mayo into a bowl, and make a very nice bootleg "chipotle" sauce, that's orange in color, and goes very well with fries. Incidentally, nobody here in the states puts mayo on their fries, whereas in Belgium or France - they never seem to bring you the ketchup.

The worst pizza I've ever tasted in my life was in Poland. I don't think there was any tomato sauce. They gave little cups of ketchup with it. Polish Pizza sucks! You don't know what real pizza is, but put some corn on it if you think it helps😂

Polish Pizza sucks!

Sure, after one pizza you had in some joint, most likely a very cheap one you know that Polish pizza suck? What is Polish pizza in your opinion?

In Poland you can but many kinds of pizza from international chains to home made pizzes often own by Italians, you can have Thai food, Vietnamise stuff, Korea, Japan cusine.

When you had that pizza in Poland? 20 years ago? Are you sure it was pizza? or that was in Poland?
How old are you? You sound like a kid or a simpleton.
Is that American style or people from Chicago are like that?

@Joker

That's an outdated POV. Pizza in Poland is very good. In Poznań, you'll find some exceptional pizzerias, and I'm sure other Polish cities can say the same.

@Bobko

:D. You sound like one of my Polish brother-in-laws. That dude could drink that stuff like a cocktail.

You ever put some hot sauce in your "chipotle" sauce of ketchup and mayo? I might be able to tolerate that.

Now, if you tell me you out ketchup on a hot dog without adding mustard to the mix, I'm going to need the coordinates of your current location. As you justify your apprehension and need to be publicly flogged in the middle of Times Square.

Belgium or France - they never seem to bring you the ketchup

Yet another reason one should never EVER trust the Belgians and French. Those people suffer from serious and deep defects.

After visiting Poland, my cousin's children were enthusiastic in expressing their opinions about Poland but asked about the taste of pizza. They all proclaimed it the worst pizza ever

Calm down, Iron Head; in my post, I talk about many opinions; the one provided is one of many, none complementary.
