The Pizza Mosque exemplifies Jeddah’s tolerance and casual attitude towards Religion within the context of daily life. Despite the Pizza symbolizing the encroachment of Western culture in a traditional society, in the end, it has joined the ranks of  international food amongst the array of cuisine that fills the multi-ethnic city. Hence, Jeddah’s dual role of gateway to the holy places and commercial and maritime capital of the Kingdom is reflected in this contemporary urban creation.
