The World in Pizza


The country of Norway is known for polar bears and high rates of happiness. However, their biggest accomplishment to date is a little-known fact. In 2005, Norway consumed more pizza per capita than any other nation in the world. In fact, Norwegians love their pizza so much that frozen pizza is their country’s official national dish!

Also known as Saturday Pizza, the toppings on the Lørdagspizza are fairly familiar to westerners: red bell pepper, beef, onion, and meatballs. What isn’t familiar is using sour cream as a dip. If you want to try the most popular brand of frozen pizza in a country of frozen pizza lovers, try Grandiosa next time you venture to Norway.

Burger Pizza

Dominos in India found an ingenious way to combine the two best foods in the world: burgers and pizza. How do they do it? The “burger” buns are made of pizza crust and stuffed between them are melted gooey cheese and typical American pizza toppings.

For the health-conscious, Dominos offers a vegetarian option. No one really knows how this pizza was created, or who the genius was that created it. All we know is this pizza needs to come to the USA, pronto!

Deep-Fried Pizza

If you thought pizza couldn’t get anymore unhealthy than in burger form, wait until you take a bite of deep-fried pizza! In Scotland, you can order a whole pizza, half pizza, single (pizza only), or a supper (fries included). These delectable goodies are served with salt and vinegar, or salt and a traditional brown sauce. Toppings are not too different from the American counterpart, and you can choose to deep-fry with or without batter (with batter carries the flattering name “Pizza Crunch”).

Deep-fried pizzas have been around since the 1970s, and a trip to Edinburgh will transport you to crunchy pizza heaven. Lucky for you, you don’t need to go to Scotland to indulge in this pizza goodness!



8 Bizarre Ocean Phenomena

The ocean is storied, deep, and complex. Whether it is the folklore surrounding Atlantis and the Bermuda Triangle, or the weird-looking fauna and flora that arise out of it, the ocean is a great source of fascination. In fact, only five percent of it has been properly explored, leaving plenty of gaps for our imaginations to fill in.

Worst Celebrity Statues from Around the World

We buy their albums, tickets to their movies, and all the products, brands, and questionable colognes that they endorse. Surely that’s enough to quell the hungry egos of some of the world’s biggest celebrities. Well, not exactly. You see, immortalization via cultural significance, world records, and millions of dollars sometimes isn’t enough. Tradition dictates that our celebrity idols need to be re-created in gold, bronze, wax, and stone, so not even the elements can dismantle the memory of their monumental rise to the top.

How to Become a UNESCO World Heritage Site

If you’re an active traveler or live in a uniquely historic part of the world, chances are you’ve been exposed to UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This phrase is thrown around frequently. When we first hear it, the first thing that comes to mind is that it must represent something historic and old. Many UNESCO World Heritage Sites are famous buildings, landmarks, or areas that are renowned because of their beauty and historical significance.
