Yeah,here are no good New York beers.

There are plenty of good NY beers, but you drink them while eating pizza; you don't put them in your pizza.

Really, this "beer in all the things!" stuff is getting as dumb as "all the things must taste like bacon!" And I'm a beer-drinking bacon lover.

Using one cup of beer in the dough probably wouldn't lead the pizza to taste particularly beer-y.

Perhaps topping it with beer braised sausages, onion caramelized in beer, and a beer infused tomato sauce would do the trick though.

Seriously, nobody dislikes good New York pizza, nor do they dislike good Chicago deep dish. There's plenty of crap pizza in both places, and LOADS more in the rest of America, but even crap pizza is good enough.

Greek Pizza.....In Cali I had the best Pizza ever, two greek guys made it....pepperoncini, olives, spinach, and some amazing tomato sauce.....

I had a vegan "pizza" last night at Ethos (Orlando) with fake cheese, fake pepperoni, vegan dough and sauce... It was alright, but honestly, there had to be "naturally" vegan meals that are good, without having to resort to vegan facsimiles of real food items.

I would have much rather had a red tofu curry or some hummus and falafel, but everything on the menu was a vegan alternative of a non-vegan entree.

Some of the best pizza in Atlanta (which is by no means a pizza town) is Greek. Normally, though, they just run diners.

Look pizza is great, I love it.  Give me Paulie Gees, Totonnos, or Johnny's in Mt Vernon any day of the week but these pizza war threads are stupid.  I don't know anyone in New York that gives a damn about how the pizza here compares to Chicago.  People outside of the city are the only ones I hear caring about this shiat.
 
2013-09-29 06:40:22 PM  
Sorry, but mead in pizza components is superior. Simply replace any sugars and water with an appropriate amount of sweat or sack mead and enjoy in dough or sauce or both for an excellent pizza; recommended for chewier rather than crisper dough. Beer is great, but leave for the addition of body and carbonation in battering rather than imparting any real flavors.

Across the board, the amount of the requested topping used on pizza is less than half of the amount used when I was young and would consume pies daily. This causes me great stress and makes me want to punch the pizza maker in the face.

This.

The whole NY vs Chicago thing has always struck me as BS. Just give me a crust, slap a good quality sauce, cheese, and meat on top and I  will eat the shiat out of that and take the leftovers home. I don't give a f*ck what "style" it is.

Remember, many folks in developed countries become vegan out of dietary or ethical concerns after having been omnivorous with meat-heavy diets. Doubtful any vegans or similar would deny meat is delicious. Mimicry is to be expected because giving up meat altogether is hard.

As to Ethos, having eaten there before, this is basically why Ethos exists: to provide vegan alternatives to common restaurant fare. Not being a Vegan myself, cannot offer many suggestions. Ate at the Dandelion Cafe and seem to recall them as unabashedly vegan. Had a grilled cheese there was not vegan but vegetarian and excellent. The chili was also good. Been years since visiting.

That's not the point. Chicago "pizza" is quite yummy. Pizza it ain't. It's no more pizza than "soy milk" is milk.

/yes, I know it has milk in it, but you don't tell people you're drinking milk just because you splashed some in your coffee

Exactly. It's like when you emphasize something by saying it twice: "It wasn't a date date, it was just a date." Little Caesar's sells pizza pizza.

Fake cheese is some of the worst tasting stuff ever. Just no.

I've had some good fake-veg items, but only at a chinese place that somehow made one of those tofu/tempeh things actually have the texture of duck. I know some people really like veggie burgers.... but they DON'T taste like meat, and most of them are pretty much mushroom-burgers (which I guess is good if you like mushrooms, but I don't).

ornithopter: /would not last a week as a vegetarian


I tried once. Lasted about two weeks. And, I'll be honest, it broke me. Like, seriously. I completely snapped one night, went to the kitchen, tossed a steak onto a hot frying pan for like 10 seconds a side, then ate it with my hands.

I felt like the fat guy binging on Twinkies after a failed diet.

/can't eat steaks medium-done or more since then

I know i'm a curmudgeon and all, but if you are going to do this you need a very very hoppy beer like an IPA and whole wheat flour and brewer's yeast. Also, as far as topping, sauce and cheese go, very mild, very young mozzarella, thinned pesto, and veggies. My thinking is that most beers are yeasty and bready tasting so, they usually don't add much to doughs. something hoppy on the other hand could cut through and be distinctive, if you kept the fat content down.

That said, anything between pilsner and amber can be used to make a really really versatile quick bread. Great for sunday morning banana nut bread ... or spicy shrimp and cheese for lunch or dinner.

That is your opinion.  Good thing that in reality it isn't dumb at all.    It may taste bad if poorly executed, but otherwise it is just flavored sugar water being used as a nutrient for the yeast that will make the dough ruse, what's dumb about that?
