Pizza is one of the most international foods there is. No matter what country you come from, you’ve probably had pizza. And you probably liked it, too!

Part of pizza’s popularity might come from the fact that there are so many different types of pizza to choose from. You can select your favorite crust, your favorite sauce, your favorite cheese, and your favorite toppings. Whether its a simple slice of cheese or something more gourmet, there is a pizza to suit almost any mood, taste, or occasion. Hear Amy and Jason talk about their favorite kinds of pizza.

比萨是最具国际影响力的食品之一。无论你来自哪个国家,可能都曾品尝过比萨。也许你也很喜欢比萨!
比萨受欢迎的部分原因或许是因为它有众多口味可选。你可以选择喜爱的饼皮、酱料、奶酪和配料。无论是配上一小块简单的奶酪还是更美味的辅料,比萨几乎适合任何心情、口味或者场合。请听艾米和詹森谈论他们喜爱的比萨口味。

Jason:  You want to get some food?

Amy:  Pizza?

Jason:  Sure. That’s pretty agreeable.

Amy:  I just…I could eat pizza every meal of the day.

Jason:  Yeah, there’s Hawaiian pizza with pineapple and bacon on it. And, you know, you could also get vegetarian pizza. It’s almost like you’re eating a salad and your dinner at the same time with all the spinach on there.

Amy:  Yeah, you can get tons of vegetables on there. It’s almost like a health food.

Jason:  Well, what kind are you in the mood for today?

Amy:  You know, I like the traditional, cheese or peperoni. But are there any toppings you don’t like? Maybe we should rule those out first.

Jason:  Yeah, let’s leave out the onions.

Amy:  Oh yeah, I don’t like onions either.

Jason:  And what kind of crust?

Amy:  Well, I’m not starving, so deep dish might be a little too heavy. How about thin crust?

Jason:  Yeah, that’s a good way to go. And actually, I ask them to leave off some of the cheese sometimes.

Amy:  What? Leave off the cheese?

Jason:  Just about half, like use half as much cheese as you would normally use.

Amy:  No way. I love the greasy cheese.

Jason:  Right on.

Jason and Amy want to get something to eat. Amy suggests pizza. Jason thinks that pizza is an easy food to agree on because there are so many different kinds and styles. Amy agrees. She likes lots of vegetables on her pizza when she’s in the mood for something healthier, but she likes traditional types of pizza like cheese and pepperoni, too.

Jason and Amy talk about what kind of toppings and crust they want. Amy wants thin crust because she isn’t very hungry. Jason says to leave off the onions. Sometimes he thinks there is too much cheese on pizza, so he asks for half the cheese. But Amy loves cheesy pizza.

Do you like pizza? What are your favorite pizza toppings? What toppings do you not like on pizza?

I just had one today. homemade. but usually I do not eat it at all . the reason is very simple: calories! but preparing this dish for my family is ejoyable enough. The secret of best taste of pie is that I always add a drop of olive oil. Is just delicious.

Same here only that these boys  make the delivery  with the help of a motorcycle ,now our streets  are not safe  anymore , congested with cars and buses  ,they are constantly exposed to  be run over  by them. I feel pity for these boys that  to make a living they have to risk their lifes  everynight  . Embarassed

hi Julito , sorry for my delay in answering your question.but to be honest about your question I have to confess that I’m totally blank in cooking :( and this is one of my biggest spiritual torture ;) no one in my family gives me accolade for my nonexistent delicious cooking but as an motivation for me to learn how to cook , maybe !!! :) but you gotta keep that one close to the vest ;)

I found out that some delivery persons don’t earn much from their employers, so they depend a lot on tips even to cover for gas expenses. It’s not much different than being a waiter . so I give them as close to 10% worth as tip, sometimes I go beyond that when I’m celebrating payday : )

Yes, Ryo... I’m sure this symbolizes more than just geometric shapes, there’s a  scientific feel to it.
