Devil Pizza

Is the Devil pizza called Diavolo or Diavola?

In Italy it's called Diavola, because the word pizza is female. Female endings in Italy always end with -a. In some other countries the male ending -o has prevailed. Sometimes you can find the completely wrong spelling Diabolo. Literally translated, the name means hellish or devilish pizza.
