"These days, you can find decent, or even excellent, New York-style pizza in almost any medium-sized to large city in America," says Brooklyn-based writer Jeff Turrentine. "But finding even passable Chicago-style pizza outside of Chicago-that still poses a challenge."

That's because no one else wants Chicago Casserole.

neongoats: lennavan: FloydA: The best pizza in the world is made in my kitchen.  Everyplace else is inferior by several orders of magnitude.   If you disagree, it's either because you make your own pizza (in which case, we can call it a tie and commence trade negotiations) or because you are wrong and stupid and evil, because homemade is the best, so shut up and furthermore.

I made a margherita pizza with Big Boy tomatoes I grew in my backyard.  At least 100x better than store bought.

It's true what you say though, ever since I started making my own pizzas from scratch at home, I stopped buying anywhere else.  I can make a really farking good pizza for like $3, way better than frozen and at least as good as store bought.  The only reason not to is you don't know how, which if true, go google it.

Or, you know, time constraints. At least 80% of pizza's ubiquity is tied to the fact that you can get a whole meal delivered to you in 20 minutes or less, generally for less $ per portion than just about anything else but ramen.

The only ppl I know that make their own homemade pizza are stay at home dads and old Italian grandmas. Literally no other human has the time to roll some dough from scratch.


Like I said, the only reason not to is you don't know how.  It is amazingly clear you have no idea how to make pizza from scratch.  You think it's more expensive than delivery and you think it takes longer than 20 minutes or less.  You have no idea how to make pizza from scratch.

I'd be more than happy to give you advice and explain how to make it, if you're actually interested.  I'm sure FloydA also would as would a great number of other people.  But I'm guessing you're not actually interested, you just wanted to spout off some nonsense.

ITKing85: Deadfeznt: New Haven must not be a city anymore

I know. I'm calling bullshiat. A mashed potatoe and bacon pizza from bar is better then any pizza I have had in New York, Boston, or Chicago

\ good house beer as well
\\Pepe's is greasy crap
\\\ Baki's in Prospect beats them all with a large pizza paddle


The thing about Chicago is that the while the deep dish gets all the talk time because it's the city's own style, there are truly excellent examples of pretty much every type of pizza out there.

Big on New Haven style?  Check out Piece in Wicker Park the next time you're in town:  http://www.piecechicago.com/about/index.html

St. Louis style's not bad. Unless you consider the unholy abomination that is Imo's to be "pizza," in which there's no hope for you.


I recommend this place if you want to give St. Louis pizza a second chance:

They got something right -- Washington DC is not on the list

I second that. DC fails at food, especially pizzza.



OK, pizza....... yeah, I'll agree not so much for the pizza. But we've got great restaurants out the yinyang in DC and also the surrounding suburbs. Washington DC is great for dining in general.

Last time I was in Chi-Town we were strolling around Lincoln Park and popped across the street to this place; Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder.  I'm not gonna say it was the best pizza I've ever had but it was definitely the most unique, and pretty damn good.  It's basically a bread bowl which is completely filled with piles of cheese, sauce and toppings.  Definitely worth a try, yum.

I hear there's a pretty decent University located in New Haven.

Go Chargers.

Yeah whatever, go chargers.  Sorry but you guys in San Diego may have great weather.  But dreary New York puts on the pounds eating awesome pizza.


The University in New Haven is called Yale.  The "Go Chargers" thing was a joke because there's also the Universi...

14. Portland, Ore. ? That blows the author's rep right there. Haven't had a good pizza since I moved here. Lots of okay pizza, lots of whacked-out pizza with toppings that belong on a compost heap, but good enough for 14th? No.

Chicago pizza is meh.  NY pizza is meh.  Best pizza places I've found were in U.S. cities that didn't brag about their pizza.

Come to think of it, that goes for a lot of things besides pizza.  The more a person or place brags about something, the more likely it's all talk.
