Oh thank gawd.  I thought we missed the bi-weekly thread on pizza.

My life would have been meaningless and ill-informed if I didn't get to once again read that priceless bit of wit that "Chicago pizza is not a pizza. It's casserole!"

Rise, repeat and start again next week.

Chicago style = good pizza
NY style = good pizza
California style = good pizza

If you don't like a particular style of pizza, I submit to you that it is because of YOUR preference (nothing wrong with that), rather than the other styles not being "worthy". Seriously...just because you prefer something else, doesn't mean that all other submissions are unworthy of consideration. Get over yourself.

Furthermore, just because I like one style, that doesn't mean that I am forbidden from liking another style, also.

The best, most authentic pizza is in Italy. It  is nothing like  Chicago 'pizza' , nothing like RI pizza and colosest to pizzerias in New York. The Italian variety is nearly always prepared in a wood-fired oven and it thin but not crispy, and puts most of the pizza made in the US to shame.

CT, NJ, and RI have the good pizza these days because thats where all the italians who left new york moved to.

If you see someone in a pizza parlor in NYC and you think they are italian, they are more likely to be albanian or some other imposter breed.

What do you know. Pizza does taste better when you are not eating it on a high horse.

I'll concede, if that is what it takes, that in Chicago it's a "casserole". Fine. But it's so much better than that cardboard NY puts out as "pizza". Holy crap is that awful. Dollar for dollar, I'll go for Malnati's over a shingle any day.

Chicago deep dish in winter and New York in summer. Just like how I prefer, dark, heavy beers in winter, and light crisp beers in summer. Each has its own place and time of year.

Well, as the owner of a successful critically acclaimed gourmet wood grilled pizza catering company based out of Federal Hill, Providence, I have to agree. 35 10976

someone from Providence trolled these results: o vidence  - and how did Providence even make the list of cities selected

The states of Indiana, Michigan and Ohio are not represented and all have bigger cities?

Possibly the reason that Chicago comes out on top is because you can get more than one kind there.  Yes, there's the famous deep-dish.  But there's also plenty of very good "standard" (read: New York style) pizza too.  There's also the kind they serve at bars that has a thin, almost crackery crust, usually cut into squares.  That's a midwestern style, not just Chicago, but the point is, there's a whole lot of good pizza in a variety of styles.

I don't give a shiat what you call Chicago pizza because it is awesome.

Jon Stewart had it 180 degrees backwards. New York pizza is nice. You can get it everywhere, it's cheap, I like it a lot. But there's nothing magic about it. Chicago pizza is an experience.

New Haven is worth throwing in the hat as a pizza city of distinction.

That's if you define what Chicago serves as "pizza." I'm gonna have to agree with Jon Stewart on this one.

I'ma let you finish, but I'm from Boston and I have to admit that I like that Providence pie.
