But as far as pizza goes, be warned: It hardly qualifies as pizza. I mean, I’m a New Yorker. Sure, I live in Ukraine now, but just last month I was back in Manhattan. Ever have Famiglia’s pizza? I think it’s on 50th Street and 7th Ave. Now THAT’S pizza. Here in Ukraine? I’m sorry, Sergei, but just because something is round doesn’t make it pizza.

Anyone want to move here and open a restaurant?
