In this exhibit is the first pizza made to be delivered. It was baked by Sicilian pizza makers in their crude brick ovens in 50 BC. It's crust is petrified, the cheese dried up and blown away. All the toppings have decayed to a rocky and inedible matter. The customer should get it next week. The delivery boy still expects a tip.

And steaks are the ugliest looking sandwiches in the world.

That sounds like what Domino's, Pizza Hut or any other crappy chain would deliver if I placed an order today.

Pat's... blech

I guess some of the 'big name' places are good enough, but there's almost always a high quality steak sandwich place in most neighborhoods. I'm not sure I've ever seen a pizza place that didn't also make steak sandwiches.

I'm a fan of Lou's in Norristown (or Lou's Too in Collegeville). Pudge's (Blue Bell) or Pudge's II (Norristown) are also really good. I don't go into the city-proper very often, but if I was in south philly, I'd probably go to Tony Luke's, but not for any particular reason. I wouldn't go to Pat's or Geno's... ever.

From Wiki:
 
Cheez Whiz, first marketed in 1952, was not yet available for the original 1930 version, but has spread in popularity.[17] A 1986 New York Times article called Cheez Whiz "the sine qua non of cheesesteak connoisseurs."[18] In a 1985 interview, Pat Olivieri's nephew Frank Olivieri said that he uses "the processed cheese spread familiar to millions of parents who prize speed and ease in fixing the children's lunch for the same reason, because it is fast."[19] Cheez Whiz is "overwhelmingly the favorite" at Pat's, outselling runner-up American by a ratio of eight or ten to one, while Geno's claims to go through eight to ten cases of Cheez Whiz a day.[16] 
 
I'll take the opinions of the owners of the post popular cheesesteak places over anyone else.

Future Fark Story

Pizza Museum Destroyed in Riots

(PHILADELPHIA) Police backed by the National Guard restored order after the governor declared martial law and ordered a dusk to dawn curfew.

It all started when the Pizza Museum mistakenly booked a conference for the Chicago Pizza Enthusiasts and another meeting with the New York pizza Lovers Association on the same day. What started as a good natured ribbing between the factions exploded in to violence leaving hundreds dead and thousands wounded. The city experienced millions of dollars in improvements.

National Guard have set up a dead line in the city with the Chicago faction on the west and the New York group on the right. During the night, Combat Engineer Vehicles plowed and cleared a 100 meter wide demarcation line down the middle of Philadelphia. Soldiers have orders to shoot anyone who attempts to cross. Both sides have set up loud speakers and continue to taunt the other side. Neither side is accepting the two city solution and the conflict has turned in to a war of words.

"We refuse to acknowledge New York's existence!" declared the loud speaker on the Chicago side. "This truce is shaky at best!"

"Shakees? More Chicago propaganda!" replied the New York loud speakers "What? Ya gotta eat pizza wit only piano and banjo music? Treason!"

U S President Ricky Schroeder has held off carpet bombing the area but admits "It's on the table"

Yea, the two places that are the pinnacle of tourist traps. I wouldn't feed one of either of their steaks to my enemies.

At any rate, I don't care what you believe, all I'm saying is that I have never seen anyone order a cheesesteak with Wiz.

Pizza snob - oh you bet.

Frankly I never buy pizza unless I am forced to. I prefer to make my own (whether pizza, calzone, panzerotti, montanara, or even just focaccia).

Make the dough and some sauce on Sunday, and you can roll them out all week. Variations mean that it never gets boring. Easily as good as any 'za I can buy in Philly, and dirt cheap, even with premium ingredients.

Sadly, no.

And I'll admit the best pizza I ever had came from a neighborhood joint in Brooklyn Heights. It literally blew my mind, and I have been trying to recreate it, but I never get close.

You need your oven at a minimum of 700 F to do thin crust. I've done it on a gas grill with a stone insert, but my local joint has a brick oven and is just 5 minutes away.

When I am unable to resist (normally because of out-of-town visitors), I'll go to Campo's on Market, or Jim's on South.

Been to Geno's once - it was ok but I can't stand his politics and the ordering instructions. Only in Philly!!!

Best thin crust around these parts. Their Sicilian is excellent as well.

I don't get out to Exton that much (I was castigated in that Philly Fark party thread, but I'll let sleeping dogs lie). Any Philly farkers want to tell me the best place in CC? I'll try any place once, but I have been largely underwhelmed.

It's the difference between $4 and $8 for basically an identical cheesesteak.
