Our condolences, Chicago. 175 years, all you have to chirp about are your pizza making skills. And the most charitable thing anyone can say about your pizza is it's, um... an acquired taste.

I am glad you enjoy your pizza.

I come from a different tradition and prefer it. That doesn't mean yours doesn't fit you palate. The same could be said about how you eat Hot Dogs. Enjoy, but I will stick with what I love and was brought up with. I hope you will do the same

subby. Remember, when in Rome...........

As an aside, there is better pizza than what is called "NY Pizza".

I live in a small Ital-American town in S.E. New England. BTW: a Grinder is the only proper sandwich, subs are far down the list.

if you can't fold it in half longitudinally to eat it, it ain't pizza.

Happy 175th birthday, Chicago, your baseball playing skills are inferior to New York and virtually every other city in the United States. Oh, and Toronto, too.

Happy bday, Chicago. We did the pizza thing last night and ate at Lou Malnati's. The girls ordered a "traditional Chicago style" and I ordered a far superior thin crust. They gave up on their pizza after one slice and ate mine. Yea - Chicago style pizza is farking nasty.

/New Haven FTW

Chicago deep dish pizza is what it is.... deep dish pizza. The argument between Chicago Deep Dish and NY Style Thin Crust is kind of silly..... like arguing between meat loaf and a grilled cheese sandwich.

Getting past that though.... I like Chicago style pizzeria thin crust pizza better than NY thin crust.... but that is just a preference for Sicilian-style pizza, which is what Chicago thin-crust resembles, vs. Neapolitan-style pizza, which is what NY thin-crust is like.

If that is the analogy (pizza taste is to sex), then Hungry Howie's must be like getting anally raped by Howie Mandel.

I've never actually had pizza in New Haven, but my favorite pizza joint, Piece Brewing Co., claims they serve a New Haven style pie. It's awesome.

I live in Chicago, and deep dish pizza isn't really a big deal. There is great thin crust at places like Piece. It's just that all the dumbass travel TV shows focus on deep dish for some reason.
 
2012-03-04 12:53:17 PM
Congrats Chicago. Both your pizza and hot dogs suck. Clearly a case of trying too hard.
 
2012-03-04 12:54:54 PM
When I order a pizza in chicago, I usually get some kind of soup in a bread bowl. When I order a hot dog, they always ruin it with all the crap on top of it.
 
2012-03-04 12:55:38 PM
Deep dish pizza is awesome, but one of the drawbacks of living in Chicago is that there really aren't any halfway decent NY style pizza places in the city. Even the thin crust pizza here is like an inch thick.

There are three food related issues which will never fail to incite outrage and bring into question another persons actual qualifications to be considered a human.

deep dish vs thin crust pizza

ketchup vs. mustard on a hot dog

pie vs cake

And for the record, the correct answers are always thin, mustard, and pie.

Pizzas are like mexican food... the more it costs the worst it tastes.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: Chicago pizza is just as good as NY Pizza, it's just a different style.

I feel like usually when people say "it isn't better, it's different" they are defending something inferior. Usually.

When I think of Chicago, I think of Michelle Obama. Chicago is nothing to be proud of. Papa Johns pizza is far better than any pizza in that hellhole. Hey Chicagoans. fark y'all for all of your corruption an fark y'all for giving us the kneegrows in the white house!

i will stop by the Rock Bottom and Hubbard st this summer to celebrate!
but will not eat pizza, it's a food i will avoid again this year.

Hey look, it's another thread where we pretend to be cool by insisting pizza must be flat, greasy, have no cheese, sauce, or toppings, and by the way you better fold it you doofus! How DARE you like anything else!

Whether it's pizza or hot dogs, my opinion is that if you have to load that much crap on it to make it edible, your core items suck.

And fark your sloppy, drippy dipped roast beef sandwiches too.

Actually, it is exactly like that. Howie Mandel is so terrible.

But, seriously, why go to Chicago when I can just stay home and eat a bucket of melted cheese?

Happy birthday, Chicago. Sorry to break it to you, but we need to return one of your "sons". He's been lost for 4 years and had apparently been squatting in the White House. We found him, and would gladly let him return. I'm sorry you were ever treated less than stellar when it comes to your food, but it's all and good if you take this man back.
 
2012-03-04 01:06:50 PM
Next we'll see New Yorkers trying to defend their ketchup-laden pork leaving sausages* ahead of the proper beef hot dogs you get here in Chicago.

*delicious kosher dogs excluded, of course
 
2012-03-04 01:07:11 PM
I feel like usually when people say "it isn't better, it's different" they are defending something inferior. Usually.

I respectfully make the observation that both Chicago-style & NY style pizza are fine eating either way. It's like the BBQ debate - texas/KC - beef brisket vs Lexington NC pork vinegar based sauce... One needn't be 'bad' for the alternatives to be 'good'. Chicago pie is much more of a meal - a knife and fork are required IMHO whereas the NY style brings with it unique flavor, crust-texture, etc.

I always equated Chicago style pizza to Pizza Hut's deep dish style... (a good thing)...

Now the regional hot-dog style debate... now THAT's a serious topic worthy of discussion....

Chicago Pizza is to real pizza what Snooki is to Pretty Women.

In a pinch you might settle for it, but you will hate yourself in the morning.

if you are folding your pizza, then congratulations, you aren't eating a pizza, you are having a sandwich.
