Chicago-style pizza is just another level of Dante's Inferno. Utter abomination. The end of days are upon us.

Nice try, submitter.

My favorite tasting pizza is italian, but that shiat's so thin you can shave with it.

Chicago pie is filling enough, but it don't taste as good.

New York style is the comprimise. It's got more substance than Italian, but it's still thin enough for creativity.

St. Louis style pizza is clearly the most superior. Nothing beats provel on a matzo cracker, and you're a heretic if your pizza slices have three sides.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Oh, look... this thread again


Yeah. It's gotten to the point that I just assume anyone who says "Chicago Pizza > NY Pizza" is either a troll or clinically insane, so I just ignore them.
 
2013-05-20 12:32:41 AM
Chicago doesn't make pizza, it makes cake, with shiat on top of it.
 
2013-05-20 12:33:44 AM
Your city must really suck if all you have to brag about is the junk food.
 
2013-05-20 12:35:48 AM
I'm from the Chicago area and even managed a deep-dish place.

But I always made thin-crusts for myself because they are obviously superior.

Deep dish is good, unfortunately all the good local places have the thin NY style.

I think CA Pizza Kitchen deserves a mention, but not in the good way.  BBQ chicken pizza is freaking horrible.

Well, it's not as if it's not true. Most Chicago pizza is a big gloppy mess. The much less known Chicago thin crust pizza is pretty good but it isn't what most "Chicago style pizza" restaurants serve. If your pizza is deep enough for Olympic divers to practice in, then it really should be called a casserole or carlacc pit rather than pizza.

I'm fond of the Philadelphia style. It's similar to New York in its sauce, cheese, and toppings, but the crust is slightly thicker and chewy rather than crispy.

I once helped a company set up an office above a pizza place in Manhattan and all I have to say is that NY pizza is complete and utter shiat.  If I wanted to eat cardboard with cheese on top on a regular basis I would just go to Office Depot.

Of the twelve items on that list, only 5 were even the least bit significant.

Invention of pizza, first American pizzeria, WW Pizza, first American chain, and invention of pizza delivery.

The crust of your pizza should only be just barely thick enough to separate the toppings from the pizza stone in the brick oven.
 
2013-05-20 12:53:09 AM
Nice trolling, subby.

Chicago-style is terrible. It's an inch of crust plus two inches of cheese, followed by a long performance by the waiter where he explains over and over again that it will take 45 minutes to cook this monstrosity.

DNRTFA;

St. Louis style cheese & crackers with NO cheese bite/string is a must.

/found a variant north of Pittsburgh. Weird.

Fubini: St. Louis style pizza is clearly the most superior. Nothing beats provel on a matzo cracker, and you're a heretic if your pizza slices have three sides.


It's pretty difficult, geometrically, to have a slide of pizza with fewer than three sides...

/New York matzo greater than St. Louis matzo!

Trivia: My dad, who grew up in Chicago, had his first pizza in 1960 when he was 36.
Can you imagine growing up without pizza, no matter what the style?

/Fark the "Old Days". They sucked.

gingerjet: I once helped a company set up an office above a pizza place in Manhattan and all I have to say is that NY pizza is complete and utter shiat.


Oh yeah, that pizza place with an office above it.  New York's finest and most representative slice to be certain.

The best deep-dish pizza I can remember eating had a sourdough crust.  It wasn't as crispy as traditional deep-dish pizza crust, but it had a flavor that complimented the thick toppings quite nicely.

Difficulty: it was at a pizzeria in Petaluma, CA (about 40 miles north of San Francisco).

So the conveyor oven doesn't warrant a slide?  Apparently the slideshow authors know very little about the pizza business.

And for porn, of course.

Once upon a time there was a San Francisco style pizza. I think you found it.

I've noticed that the same people that like New York Style Pizza like the Stinking Rose in North Beach.
