Was that a typo?
Understandable: the 's' key and the 'z' key *are* right next to each other.

And corn! Preferably from a can.

And sweet pickles, but those have to on the side, otherwise it would be gross, obviously.


In japan, they did something very similar, except they also topped it with flaked catfish. It was pretty cool: when they take the pizza out of the oven, heat convection made all the wispy flakes wave and wiggle, making the pizza seem alive.

Kinda like this, but not on okonomiyaki.

I'm not sure if your tongue is in your cheek or not.

Did you know that 파전 is actually an English portmanteau? It started in the Korean war when more wheat flour was coming in and the only vegetables grown locally were leeks and  (green) onions.

So the GIs saw that the Koreans were eating this "pizza like" circle of batter and onions and they would laugh and say "haha, looks like pizza!" (This is why Koreans today still call it pizza-like even today).

So the Koreans weren't sure what that meant. Pizza? What's that? So the GIs would explain to them, "You know, like Papa John's?"

 :lipsrsealed: 파파.......전스?

 :police: Yeah, man. Papa John's. You know? *points at this new Korean pizza wheat onion concoction.*

 :lipsrsealed: 아~~~~~~ 파전?

 :police: Yeah...... Sure, Mr. Kim. Pajohn.

 :lipsrsealed: 파전............... 파전!!!

And a staple of modern Korean cuisine was born. All thanks to the GIs bringing in a lot of wheat flour for their own cooking purposes.

I'm not being serious.
I can cook well enough that I'm not forced to eat condiment concoctions, thankfully.  :smiley:
