Did you know that it's a crime to eat pizza with ketchup?

If anyone asked you: what additional "sauce" do you eat your pizza? What would be your answer? So... If you answer that puts any type of sauce, you are - according to the Italians - commenting on a culinary crime. They are extremely fieis their cooking and say that pizza isn't eaten with any kind of extra sauce (you may even be frowned upon or scolded for it). I heard this from an Italian lady while I was waiting for my parents to come and pick me up by car. Can you believe that? How crazy is that?

I always put hot sauce on my pizza. It makes my pizza so delicious to eat when it is spicy, that's why. Pizzas are now being made in every country. We know that it emanated from the Italians. However, innovate our piiza versions.

I guess it was metaphorically. Maybe it is their tradition not to add something extra to the pizza, but every now and then people have different ways to eat the pizza. As for me, I would not add anything else but eating the whole thing and go for more. lol

I only add additional sauces if it is a cheap and not very tasty pizza. Usually I go with Tabasco sauce for the inexpensive frozen food variety. But if it is something like pizza rolls I might dip them in some chipotle ranch dressing. Again, this only applies to the cheap stuff. Any half decent pizza for me doesn't need anything added. I can't imagine ketchup on pizza being something I would like though. But more power to whoever eats their pizza that way I guess. I am not the kind of person to tell people how they should enjoy their food. XD
