This month’s All You Can Tokyo is the dish that never fails: pizza! Pizza might not be the first food you seek out in Japan, but it’s well worth the experience. The pizza at the places below are cooked in true Italian Napoli style using a brick oven. Some of the toppings might be strange, such as seafood (beyond just anchovies) or vegetables like corn and eggplant. However, you can also find more traditional fare like pepperoni, or classic Napoli and margherita styles.
