What is Brazilian Pizza?

rworange | Dec 25, 2005 04:31 PM

Searching around on the web I found a lot of differnt thoughts. Mainly it seems thin crusted with less sauce and unique toppings.

Or is that just nonsence? I was reading there is a large Italian population in Brazil. So is the fame of the pizza just tied to the population and it is no differant than pizza anywhere?

This link from a Framingham, Mass place seems to focus on the toppings (corn, raisins, hard-boiled eggs and hearts of palm) rather than the crust.

However, the link below which has some excellent pictures of Brazlillian food, has a picture of a pizza which looks nothing like the US places I surfed that had pizza pics.

So what makes a pizza Brazilian?

This picture is from a SF pizza place.
