Why would you call that pizza? Because it's flat? Are pancakes breakfast pizza? Are eggs Benedict really pizza? Is an open face turkey sandwich Thanksgiving pizza? If you take the top slice of bread off a ham and cheese sandwich, does it become a ham and cheese pizza? Is an plain old cheesecake only a name change away from being a deep dish cheesecake pizza? There is absolutely nothing pizza about that thing.

What the heck is people's fascination with calling things pizza just because they are flat?

Just relax man. A simple  "I don't think that qualifies as pizza" would have worked.

You never answered the question why YOU called it pizza?

That answer would not have risen to the level of absurdity of the question.

Perhaps I should have titled it the same as the article which is "Poll: Is Okonomiyaki "Japanese Pizza"?"

Heh I know what you mean. :-D  I was reading the replies on this thread and wondering whether anyone had actually read the original question!

FWIW I've certainly heard of Okonomiyaki before but not referred to as "Japanese Pizza" until recently.

I like to make okonomiyaki from time to time. I like it quite a lot. I usually make it with plenty of bean sprouts which give it a nice crunchiness.

Joey fundamentally changed the original question posed at Slice with the title of his post: Has anybody heard of Okonomiyaki pizza from Japan? Slice asked if it was pizza, Joey stated that it is pizza. That's why I asked him why he chose to call it pizza.

I admit it's a pet peeve of mine: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,20764.0.html
