Polish Pizza !! The best in the world?

They all proclaimed it the worst pizza ever

Reasonable. It is usually very very bad

In the decades I've only known two maybe three good places. One was in Ochota and was excellent. The owner had won a prize for the best pizza in Melbourne before coming to Warsaw and opening it. I think it's recently closed unfortunately. His pizzas were the best I've tasted anywhere. They were the opposite of normal Polish pizza (i.e. very good). Perhaps they were just too good for the local market.

The second was a place in the starōwka in Toruń which only had two types of pizza, with mushrooms or without and had long tables that everyone day together at (almost the opposite of any other public place in Poland). To drink, they only served barszcz. There were queues outside however it was over s decade now and I don't know if it's still open

Neither had any ketchup in sight.

The third is our local one right in the North of Warsaw. Their pizzas are good. The owner is Czech.

Odd that Poland has something nice like zapiekanka (though I've seen people ruin that with ketchup often enough) yet in a country of 37 million, they can't do a pizza.

I've also seen lasagne like a wobbly blancmange cake and some pretty bad pasta dishes

One of the things I miss from home is bolognese pizza, a Leeds speciality. Or maybe I don't miss it since in Poland it would be a tasteless dry smear probably containing pork and ketchup.

Your hate for Poland and all things Polish is painfully palpable. But why come online, and in a forum intended for people to share things about Poland, would you come and spew your toxic venom?

Have you not better things to do? Polish pizza makes Poles happy, and ketchup is both nutritious and delicious. Accept it, you imperialist scum.

and all things Polish

Only the pizza. It is vile.

The stuff they put on it isn't even cheese, it's "non-dairy pizza topping". Plus in PL they also often have processed pork on it.

ketchup is both nutritious and delicious

I've hardly ever eaten the ready made stuff. It ruins anything it touches. Have you read the ingredients on the label?

The same with mayonnaise. The ready made stuff that comes in jars is just nasty even worse in sachets.

And bottled ketchup or other pots of sauce don't belong anywhere near a pizza. Or a kebab (I've sadly seen this too in Poland).


Who's invading where right now?

Here's a link to the place in Ochota. It might still be open. I hope it is and hope it's still as good.

Chocolate pizza does exist. I'm not sure how it works.

So does pizza with almonds and raisins in the UK, probably inspired by Peshawari Naan (a lot of pics shop proprietors come from Pakistan).

Bolognese pizza would be a hit in Poland of it was done right.

Though it wouldn't be.

The taste of pizza depends on the outlet. After years of experiments, I know where to take the family for a good pizza, both in town and countryside.

Chocolate pizza does exist

Yes, I saw it two or 3 years ago in Selgros, then it disappeared.

I'm the other way around. Zapiekanka is kind-of-crappy. Polish pizza ca. 2007ish is pretty good, ca. 2015 is very good, unless you go to some hillbilly joint.

I'm a yank, I know what I'm talking about. 😁

Telepizza in Katowice is not bad.

Telepizza is pretty bad generally. Not as bad as DaGrasso.

Pizza Marżano (belongs to Pizza Express in the UK) do an ok salade niçoise.

The only half OK chain I've seen in PL is Pizza Hut. A shame they don't translate the name and call it Chata Pizza.

Google says there's a local one, presumably not sued, called Pizza Chata.

Polish pizza tends to be really crappy.
Although it can vary in quality immensely, I prefer Zapiekanka.

Hut in German means hat, so why not Kapelusz Pizza or Pizza spod Kapelusza.

It's not a German company as far as I know. Far more countries in which it operates call a hut a hut and not a hat.

Hut sounds more like chata than kapelusz

Anyway, who would want German pizza? Lahmacun or Dõner maybe.

And hat doesn't make any sense, whereas hut does.

I prefer Zapiekanka.

Pizza Hut is an American company, hence the Hut. It's ok. They make a better pizza in their Polish chains than their American ones, IMO.

Pizza Hut is an American company,

I haven't been to a Pizza Hut or KFC in 30 years. The last PH Ive seen was in Florida where those rednecks havent a clue. Go to Chicago or NY for real Pizza.

Polish pizza tends to be really crappy.

Its an insult to real Pizza. They use ketchup as sauce! LOLOL
