That's easy to do when all Chicago offers is some abominable cheese/meat/tomato soup in a grotesque bread bowl.

Seriously, that is NOT pizza.
 
2010-03-25 11:58:58 AM  
And she's right, too.

It's pizza vs a bowl of glop.

Deep dish pizza is fantastic. That is all.
 
2010-03-25 12:09:49 PM  
Well I wouldn't say all New York pizza is better than all Chicago pizza, it is on the whole superior.

Brick Oven pizza is the best, of course.

Cardboard with pizza sauce on it may be YOUR version of pizza, but in the hearty midwest, we like our pizzas that could kill a man if you threw it at him.

"Ooh look - I can fold it in half! That means it's tasty and not like high school cafeteria pizza at all!"

Calling lasagna pizza doesn't make it so.

How about Brick Oven NY-style Pizza? (new window)

Who knew Egyptians could make an awesome pizza?

First it's healthcare, now it's pizza.
 
2010-03-25 12:14:53 PM  
I like both, but NY pizza is the clear winner. I'm from NY, and pretty much hate everything about it except the food.

My god. First, if you want, we'll do apples to apples:

Sicilian pizza, which cannot be folded, is better than that abomination Chicago sh*ts out.

Second: you don't have to fold it, but you can, as you would a slice of bread. You know what you can not fold? A loaf of bread. You know why most of us don't even try to? Because who the hell wants to eat a soggy loaf of bread?

/When I think "good italian food", I think "The midwest". Certainly not NYC.

Hey, what about that yummy California style pizza with tofu, pineapple, artichoke hearts and feta cheese? Oh yeah, that's not real pizza, it's just something you wipe your ass with.
/my vote's for deep dish

I'm listening to Holy Wars by Megadeth at the moment.

It should be re-written to chronicle the pizza wars.

You can't fold a piece of apple pie either, so are you saying that apple pie sucks?

YOU ARE A FILTHY COMMIE BASTARD. GOOD DAY.

You'd think that Chicago would learn a little restraint in regards to toppings. You need a haz-mat suit just to eat one of those Gawd-forsaken hot dogs!

Wanna kill a man? Just feed that slop to him. It violates the Geneva Conventions.

Apple pie: 1/10th crust, 9/10 apple goodness
Chicago Deep Dish Bowl of Ass: 9/10 crust, 1/10 glop

YOU'RE ARGUMENT HOLDS NO WATER!

It only tastes like cardboard when places outside NY attempt to make NY pizza.

New Haven, CT is where it is really at.

But that is NY style brick oven.

Apparently Mrs. Obama has never eaten pizza in Detroit.

Buddy's Pizza

Better than NY or Chicago.
 
2010-03-25 12:29:03 PM  
I love Chicago style, but its not "pizza".

I thought Providence, RI had the best pizza?
 
2010-03-25 12:29:45 PM  
She also showed up at one of my theaters on Sunday. No announcement or anything. The doors just opened and she and the kids walked in and sat down. The only change to the show we made was to cut the word "fu*k" from one scene.

The First Lady and her daughters escaped to New York to catch a Broadway show while her husband stayed in Washington to fight for health care.

And also it's called "soda", not "pop".

FTFA: ""No, what she said was, 'It's the best pizza, and I'm from Chicago.'" Which is essentially the same thing, and it's just the kind of Biden-esque remark that could cost the President the support of Illinois Democrats and derail the completion of health care reform. "

SRSLY? WTF?

/End threadjack.

I like both kinds, but I must say that the best pizza I have ever had was in NY.

It's indeed a demonstrable fact that there are no Italians anywhere in or around Chicago.

None that make good pizza, apparently. And if they do, they put a sign up saying "NY style pizza".

She's right, and if you disagree you're a tastebud-lacking America-hater racist.

CtrlAltDelete: And also it's called "soda", not "pop".

I don't mind the "pop" thing. I mean, when I say "vodka soda" or "scotch and soda" I clearly mean one specific type.

/not to argue with you. We must remain united against these deep-dish whores.

Around here we have a special term for NY Style Pizza.

We call it pizza.

I seriously believe that we should add 'Do you think Chicago-style is better than NY-style pizza?' to IQ tests, and that anyone answering yes should automatically be downgraded to below 90.

jbc: Columbia, Missouri laughs at both of them.

Everyone that tries it after graduating says, "Hhhhmmm, it's not as good as I remember it".
Yeah, because you were never sober when you had it in college.

Chicago "pizza" is nasty. Hell, even St Louis style is far superior to that abomination.

That's...intelligent.

Yes, people who prefer Chicago-style Pizza to NY Pizza, or cannot appreciate a curry and factually and objectively mentally retarded.

They need to follow my example, and drink copious amounts of scotch after an all-night pub crawl to celebrate a friend's engagement.

Then they must watch south park as they fark.

Fark Chicago style!!

You're GodDamned right they are. Nick's, Lombardi's, Patsy's...

Fark, now I'm going to have to book a flight back just for a munchie fix.

A layered pasta bread-bowl is not pizza. It may be very sustaining, but it is not pizza.
 
2010-03-25 01:08:00 PM  
I find it amusing that there seems to be as much vitriol in this debate than there is in anything in the Politics tab.

so many jokes, don't know which way to go with this....

/Chicago style pizza can suck it.
