Hi Mary,

Do you mean places like Pizza Hut, Domino's, etc.? There used to be Pizza Hut in Prague but I'm not sure if they're still around. Domino's is not here, Papa John's isn't either. I can't think of others right now. If you're asking about deep dish pizza, that is not common in the Czech Republic. So I guess the answer is no.

thanks for the information. Pizza Hut is one that I was looking for. I have this school project: The scenario is that I am small business person in America and I want to open a pizza shop in the Czech Republic. The case study says that my family is from Prague and I want to open my business there. So what I have been trying to do is find out everything I can about Czech Culture and doing business in the Czech Republic.

Thanks for all your help!

You could always try to open a deep dish pizza shop, advertise it as something uniquely American and see if you get people interested. There's a lot of Italian style pizza in the Czech Republic, so you may want to try something different to ... differentiate yourself. :)

There was a "New York Pizza Shop" that had really good pizza right before you crossed the Charles Bridge from the Mala Strana side of the river. It was a tourist attraction but it was the closest thing that we had for "drive through" fast food, eat on the run type food before we would get over across the river for some beer cheese and good local restaurants.

There is also a really good American stlye pizza shop in Cheb.

Oops, I just ran into an online Chicago-style pizza delivery service. So I guess deep dish pizza does exist in this country. I still don't think it's common though.

How about Bar-B-Que? (not barbeque pizza - ugh! - but real Southern, Texas, or Memphis style barbeque)

Dana, Now that I think about it, I think that it was Chicago, not New York pizza.

Could someone explain for us who have never been to the US, what is difference between normal barbeque and southern, texas or memphis style barbeque, between Chicago and NY pizza?

take a look at

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbeque

it seems to be fairly accurate.

There are a thousand (well, maybe I exaggerate) different ways to make barbeque and everyone thinks theirs is the best. As for me, I pretty much like them all. :)

I'll let someone else talk about pizza - I'm not an aficionado.
