    Small American pizzas are the same size as large UK pizzas; large American pizzas are 6" larger. Also much less expensive, and good quality when bought from the right places. What's not to like?
    I'm against UK pizzas too

    Nowhere else in the world seems to be capable of making butter like we have in the UK. It's (far) too sweet in the USA and too salty in Europe. I even bought Lurpak in Norway, but even that tasted different...

    ...But in spite of their adequate size, they're smaller than American pizzas. Fat messes like myself consider almost all food to be good. More food is even better. Ergo, American pizzas are awesome - and while they may not taste as nice as Italian pizzas, their ridiculous proportion more than makes up for it

    oh my god, when i live in paris on my gap year, i missed fresh milk (long life stuff to keep in cupboards? awful!), normal crisps (what IS it with french crisps that make them taste like the rubbish 'light' variety?!), mum's proper cooking (roasts, crumbles, casseroles!), good apples (i like my local ones!) and marmite

    I'm jealous. When you next go back I can come too, I'm sure I can manage to hide in a suitcase for a few hours :grin:

    Stuff that takes a while to make... like really good roast dinner, lasagna, shepherd's pie... don't have time to make these things properly, could have them ready made but it's just not the same! D':

    Edit- Just realised you meant whilst abroad... same would apply though I guess!

    Missing something from home doesn't mean you can't/don't appreciate other food.

    I used to bring peanut butter, Marmite and Angel Delight back in my suitcase. I did get used to UHT milk after a few weeks of grumbling. Other than those, everything was cushty.

    I would argue however that the emotion of feeling negatively affected due to the lack of presence of something (missing something) is affected by the current state of the item category that contains the item you are missing. Which would imply missing something is caused by a deficiency of the items you are presently experiencing in the item category that contains the item you are missing and not experiencing. So the feeling of missing something could very well be due to the percieved inferiority of the food currently being experienced, which thusly leads us to the conclusion you are not appreciating the food you are currently experiencing. I will therefore concede the validity of your statement in some circumstances only.

    Well, I have been told.

    It is hard not to like such pizza for a human being!

    Are you actually a Human?

    Or are you some other creature?
