White sauce rather than tomato sauce, with pepperoni and gummi bears

/bears added after cooking, naturally
//shouldn't Chicago-style have something with gummi bears? Never tried them on a deep dish though

tripleseven: Chicago doesn't make pizza, it makes cake, with shiat on top of it.


They most certainly do make pizza here, and some of it's pretty good. Pronto 'Za on Halsted and Division is about as close as I've had to a NYC slice.

/not the deep-dish shiat though. I don't even know what that is
//Originally from NYC. live in Chicago. If I can't fold the slice in half, I'm not eating it.

One of the best pies is the Pizzaland pizza. The building is shown during the opening of "The Sopranos." The round pizza pans were brushed with olive oil using a paint brush. The dough was flattened out in the pan, sauce, cheese, spices, toppings if any, seasonings, and a little olive oil on top. Baked in a super hot oven for five minutes or so, then the pie was slid out onto the hot slate to crisp up the crust. Burnt bits from previous pizzas would stick to the bottom of your pie, indicating authenticity. I've watched them make twenty pies in a minute. The pans were burnt black and smelled like garlic.
  The pre made uncooked pizza pie was also sold in upstate New York at a bar in the Adirondacks, they were great pies, the line would be out the door at times, people buying raw pizzas.

gibbon1: 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. If I wanted to eat cardboard with cheese on top on a regular basis I would just go to Office Depot.

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


Tourists from the Midwest?

gingerjet: doglover: 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.

Just watch "Pizza Cuz" on the Cooking Channel, Monday 9PM. Two overweight gumbas go around the country sampling different styles of pizza an how they're prepared. I think they would agree that Chicago pizza is heresy.

Pizza was the "hipster food" of the WWII generation. Much like Sushi is considered "hipster today".

Yup, you had a few places in mid America making pizza...but it really didn't take off until the 60's. With the "Rat Pack" of Dean Martin, Sinatra etc.. singing the praises of pizza..in song and interviews. "That's amore" by Dean Martin.
In the 50's and 60's Italian stuff was very pop culture in the USA for "cool kids" and "hipsters"
The best way to describe it is how Japaneese stuff is now the 'new cool hipster thing'.
Pizza and even most Italian food was considered 'exotic' at the time for middle America.

And don't tell me these people weren't the orginal "Hipsters" of their day:

New York style pizza is awful -- a two-dimensional parody of what ought to be a satisfying meal.

If you have to fold it over, just to convince yourself that you're biting into something more substantial than air, you might as well be eating a photograph of food.

I have a rather juvenile sense of humor (just ask my ex-gf) and it's comments like these that make me giggle like a junior high-aged kid that's drawing crude penises on the bathroom wall with a permanent marker. Now, the beautiful lady that's in my bedroom, can hear me laughing and she's probably thinking that I'm in here drawing crude penises on other people's photos using MS Paint. Thanks for making me laugh and waking her up, jerks.

But, the joke's on her. I use Photoshop, not that crappy MS Paint crap. Crap.

From Wiki: "...and is served with the marinara sauce on top."

What kind of frickin' paste-eating, floor-licking retard with crayons jammed into their nostrils puts the sauce on top? When I make a hamburger, I don't put the mustard and/or ketchup on top of the bun. You know why? Because I'm not a frickin' paste-eating, floor-licking retard with crayons jammed into my nostrils.

You can order it with the sauce under the cheese if you want. Also, it's not really marinara. Typically if you order pepperoni, it is under the cheese, which is kind of weird, but I don't see the point in ruining a pizza with pepperonis anyway. And Detroit style uses thicker pepperonis.

Hahaha.  Back in the way-before, whenever one of my best friends from high school visited, we'd get LC cardboard.  Then we'd swear we would never do that again.  It was just so gross it didn't matter that there was so much of it.  Then he'd drop by a few months later and we'd get LC again.  Because it was friggin' cheap and we were poorer than poor.  (I once stretched a cheese log and a can of beans for four days until payday.)  We could get one awesome medium pizza for about $14 or two large LC "pizzas" for under $10.  I think it was $8 with a coupon.  And no tipping because we had to go pick it up.  half the price for 3x the "food".

Oh please, it's the most overrated topping ever. Onions, bacon, green olives, italian sausage, pineapple, jalapenos and maybe ham: any combination of 3 of these is acceptable. I don't hate pepperoni, I just don't like one topping pizzas, and don't think it goes well with other toppings. Plus Detroit style pepperoni is too thick.
