Australian Pizza wins top honours!

Any Aussies in our group?

Apparently, Australians can get the best pizza in the world in their own country.

Edited to ad: I probably should have put this in travel since it is another reason to visit Australia.

Apparently they also have fantastic espresso. They have a huge Italian population.

Las Vegas!! Hey, only pizza contests in Italy count.

Good grief, next we will be eating 'Texas' Chili made in New York!!

Thanks for the list. I am going to print it out and keep it in my suitcase. Help finding good pizza is always appreciated.

These I can appreciate. Since gluten-free is the only kind I can eat it was great when people started making them. The early ones tasted like cardboard but they're getting much better. There's one local to here that does a fine job.
