thenumber5: biggest death nail in the whole "Chicago Pizza is the best" argument

in any city in the country i can buy a New york style or Pan Pizza

you rarely see a Local place that sells Chicago style


You can get McDonalds in any city in the country too. So what?

/pepperoni, jalapeño and pineapple FTW

HotWingAgenda: I live in San Diego, and have a gluten-free pizzeria less than a mile from my apartment.

I'm sure there are little enclaves here and there, but nothing compared to up north.

(Three guesses, Hillcrest, North Park, Del Mar ... was I close?)

Yogimus: Not a lot of gluten in tacos...

Carne asada tacos use flour tortillas, yum.

// and I think it's time to start cooking the pollo asada that's in my fridge.

I hope someone starts a thread soon where we argue about whether it's soda or pop.


No. What we need is a good thread over restaurant gratuities.

I'll eat my pizza however I want to, and since I live in the epicenter of good pizza (Chicago! Pizzano's!) I can. Also I have learned, never click on BuzzFeed; it's always stupid.

That being said, a good pie is a good pie no matter what the style and since it is hard to find here I had NY style tonight.

Fong's Pizza here in Des Moines is amazing. Crab Rangoon, mongolian beef, and mushu pork pizzas are freaking awesome. They also get inventive and so chicken, spinach, and alfredo pizzas aren't uncommon either.

Craptastic: No true pizza? Really?

Took a friend of mine to Lou Malnati's a month or so ago. He's from Toronto, and kind of gave the pizza a weird look before digging in. After two bites he looked across the table and "What shiat have I been eating all my life and calling 'pizza'?"

These threads make me hate everybody, BTW.


THIS
but on any given day, I get tired of all the varieties.
Must suck to live in NYC and only be able to get greasy cardboard for "pizza"

InflamedGonads: Because Deep Dish is Bread....Bread is the greatest food known to man, Cheese and Bread even better, the rest is you know.


This is why I listed two kinds of thick pizza.
Connies does a pretty good version of this.
Nice thick airy bready crust, nice sauce, nice cheese.
Perfect, when you are looking for a heartier bite to eat.

/is it time to start ignoring the NY pizza nazis? do they ever have anything rational to say? kind of like cub fans ....

It's always my pleasure to post in these pizza threads- for those heading to the beach this summer:
Vito's in Wrightsville Beach, NC. Something about the salt air. Best NY style pizza I've ever had.

Chicago style pizza isn't all that great.

I was in Chicago and when asked by a group what kind of pizza I wanted I said "Hawaiian" (Pineapple and Canadian bacon) they looked at me like i was from another planet

Describing that monstrosity as "Chicago-style" proves it is a mutation, and not the original pizza type.

Well new york style isnt the same as pizza Margarita from Italy, so its a mutation.

Please, mods, can we ban the word "pie" in all pizza threads henceforth?  Pizza is not pie.

[slice.seriouseats.com image 514x386]


I tried Little Caesar's deep dish, and it was beyond awful. They run it through the oven the same amount of time as their regular crust, and it was a doughy, undercooked abomination. Jet's deep dish, on the other hand, is the greatest thing to come out of any chain pizza restaurant.

Living in Jacksonville, there is a major lack of quality independent pizza joints. Brucci's has a good NY style, but beyond that, I haven't found anything that was beyond average.

You've never tasted Shield's or the other Detroit deep-dish pizzas that long preceded Little Ceasar's version, you poor deluded person.  I know what I said.

drjekel_mrhyde: This beats the hell out of a Philly cheese steak


That's not even bread... it looks withered!  And where the hell is the cheese?  The peppers look OK, but no onions?... definitely a fail.  There is a reason why the Philly cheesesteak has gone "viral" and is ubiquitous everywhere.  The thing you advocate looks like something you might be glad to get in a bar at 2am when all self-respect has been surrendered.
 
2013-05-05 04:42:35 AM
The true test of any pizza is one that you can eat the following morning cold, and enjoy in and of itself.  That can't happen with a casserole type pizza.

Too many chain pizzas are closer to ketchup and cheese on bread than a true pizza (Pizza Hut), and others with the sweet sauce and "tender tastier crust" don't come close to making the grade.

If you want to narrow it down, summertime Jersey shore NY style pizza flavored with air born sea-salt and peripheral vision bikinis is THE BEST, bar none.

Pi pizzas are very healthy, but they're about 90% tomato sauce and bread, with almost no meat and cheese. Not like the usual artery clogger people are thinking of when they hear "deep dish".

Mrtraveler01: The best place to get pizza in New York is a quaint pizza shop in Times Square called Sbarro's.


Oh please... Sbarro is decent, but really -- out of all the pizza places in NYC, that's your pick?  When I used to eat that stuff, my two faves were Grimaldi's and Posto (18th St.) but there are plenty more that beat Sbarro's anyday.

My bad!  Haven't seen much of the American Office.  Also it triggered a memory of a touristy acquaintance who encouraged me to check out Ray's Pizza, telling me it was the best in NYC.

Having been born and raised in the Chicago area, I was still amazed to find out a short while ago (in the last month) that there are TWO Chicago style pizza - deep dish and thin crust. Where the thin differs from a New York style is that NY style is still doughy and you can fold it. Chicago style crust is baked to where it's the consistency of a cracker. Which ever way you like it THIN RULES!!! If I want to fill up on bread, I'll go to Olive Garden.
