Pizza, it's universal (more or less)

Authentic in style or not, where in the world, with a focus on the less expected places, have you had pizza of note? One of my memorable pizzas was sold by the square slice by an itinerant vendor in the southwest of France. It was sold off the back of a truck with wood burning oven in the open market of a small village. It was an excellent product made especially noteworty by the Bearn/Basque topping of chorizo and red pepper.

I guess the wildest pizza I had was at Roxanne's in Larkspur Calif., where everything, including the crust. was raw. The crust was made from almond flour and then dried in a dehydrator for crispness. I know raw food is taking a hit these days, but I thought it was great. As was the sushi pizza at Morimoto in Philly. Also, the Navaho flatbreads in Arizona reminded me of pizza, so I think it falls right in there.
Okay, now it's your turn folks...
