    The worst pizza in the world?

    Had the worst pizza of my life a bar called La Cigale on 25th de Mayo...Sorry, but there are a few pizza basics that are not negotiable. What's the deal with artificial cream cheese? Where's the tomato sauce? Venezia Italy has the best pizza I ever tasted and I'm a pizza lover.
