This page contains a collection of the Top Italian aberrations that I’ve come across.
#1 – Mac and Cheese Pizza

#2 – Meat, Macaroni and Cheese Loaf
|Jan 10, 2011 – Sold in Canada|
#3 – Poutine Pizza
|November 27, 2010 – Photo taken on Commercial Drive, Vancouver|
#4 – Spaghetti in a Can
|September 2014 – Picture taken in the UK.The fact that the spaghetti are “in a rich and tasty tomato sauce” doesn’t help…|
#5 – Mexican Pizza (with Nachos!)
|August 2013 – Picture taken in the UK, courtesy of Marco|
#6 – The Lone Lasagna Bathing in Tomato
|I’m speechless… The absolute worst way to keep a slice of lasagna warm.
Seen in a allegedly Italian fast food restaurant in Calgary.
#7 – Old World Style Ragù
|Original because “Flavored with Real Ground Beef”?
Ragù is a meat sauce, not a questionable tomato sauce *flavored* with meat.
Besides, what else can ground beef be other than real?
#8 – The “Parmesan” Shaker
|The parmesan shaker is a must in every pizza place in North America.
Yet, there is no such thing as ‘parmesan’ – the powdery “cheese” that never goes bad!
In Italy, you will find freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano or at least Grana Padano.
And it’s for pasta, not for pizza.
#9 – Beef Lasagna Casserole (and Garlic Toast)
|October 22, 2011 – Photo taken outside a famous coffee shop, in Vancouver.|
#10 – The Lightest Coffee Ever Made
|November 20, 2010 – Photo taken in a UBC cafe, in Vancouver|
#11 – Meatballs Pizza
|Mar 15, 2013 – From a popular pizza joint in Vancouver|
#12 – Crunchy Cheesy Bites Pizza
|December 1, 2013 – Street ad from a popular pizza chain (photo taken in Vancouver)|
#13 – Pizza Mozzarella
|November, 2015 – There is no such thing as Pizza Mozzarella! Only mozzarella mozzarella. (Photo taken in Vancouver)|
