The pizza in Brazil

The pizza is the world's most popular Italian dish., During my travels in Brazil, I could not help but notice how this dish is popular in this land. Much of this credit goes to all the Italian immigrants from 1800 onwards they moved to this beautiful country. Today pizza has become part of the Brazilian culture, and is a food habitual, and in many traditional recipes, you made some interesting variations of ingredients to adapt to different cultures and local tastes.
I found online an interesting article written by the magazine Super interesting that he says that in Brazil there are currently 50.000 pizzerias, half of which appears to be in the state of Sao Paulo, and seguire Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, Minas Gerais and Bahia.
As in any other part of the world, every city has its preferences, and below a chart to show the tastes of the people Brazilian.
