Greek Pizza at Georgio's

Pizza is very popular and often very good in Greece, thanks to the huge number of Italians who visit. Nearly every town has at least one πιτσαρία or pizzeria.

Americans visiting Greece expecting to find what they call 'Greek pizza' in the US (with a focaccia-style crust, introduced to New England by Greek immigrants) will probably be disappointed: most pizza in Greece is Neapolitan.
