Talladega Nights - Pizza Is Not from Italy
In the scene when Ricky Bobby is at the bar. The French guy is introduced. They both start arguing over whats American. First Ricky says "Chinese food". The French guy says "Thats from China". Next Ricky says "pizza". The French guy says "Italy". Really pizza was created by an Italian guy but that happened in New York city making pizza American. The writers of this movie need to watch the History channel more often.

It depends on how technical you want to get. The "mother" of the modern day pizza does indeed originate in Naples, but pizza in some form or fashion may have come from any number of places. The difference in pizza from Naples and the American version of pizza is how it's made. In Naples, the pizzas are very large but very thin. It's not unusual for an entire pizza to be a meal for a single person. The pizza in Naples also isn't cut into slices, it comes as a full pie. What originated in New York is the sliced pizza, making it easier for a person to grab a single slice or share a pizza. Of course, different toppings would also follow making a greater difference between the American version and the Naples version. There is also the deep dish pizza that originated in Chicago. Of course, as it pertains to the movie... It's a silly comedy and I doubt they did much research for that one line. Besides, two ones also don't make eleven.
