I've eaten pizza with a fork and knife (in Jersey, no less) if it's steaming freaking hot just out of the oven.  Especially if it's loaded with toppings and the cheese + toppings are liable to slide off.  I'll usually move to hands by the time I get halfway through / to the crust / the next slice.

Also if I'm doing something where, sorry, I just don't want grease on my hands.  Working through lunch = good example.

Yep... If it's a pizza with a thin crust I will too. I'm not going to fold my pizza in half because if I had wanted a farkers calzone I would have ordered one.

Heh, not a New Yorker, just pointing out the fold method that many New Yorkers consider the 'proper' way to eat their pizza.  Hence the poutrage over deBlasio's knife and fork.

FTA: "In my ancestral homeland it is more typical to eat with a fork a knife."

1) Ancestral homeland means "where your ancestors are from". You, however, are from New York. And they also burnt people at the stake in your "ancestral homeland". -- Meaningless statement

2) You aren't in your "ancestral homeland", dunce. "When in Rome" and all that. When I eat rice with chopsticks, I have no problem just jamming the sticks into the rice while I reach for my drink; I wouldn't do this in Japan as (from what I've heard) it has certain connotations. I wouldn't do it and then say, "Oh, but back home I do this." -- Stupid statement

"De Blasio" was born Warren Wilhelm, Jr.

You want Italian? His mother's parents.

And pizza, as it is made in NY (and certainly by Goodfella's), is only slightly more Italian than fortune cookies are Chinese.

So let me get this straight.  When a poor person has dinner with classy folks, and God forbid, uses a salad fork to shovel his entree down his gullet, it's considered bad manners to look away in disgust or even mention the absurdity of it.  But when a classy person refuses to lower himself to the slop bucket and eat his food with his bare hands, it's perfectly okay for the people to make a fuss over it.  Got it.

For me, pizza needs to be on the thin side, with a paste of a sauce. You should be able to turn the slice upside and not have anything fall off. That's the perfect pizza.

2014-01-11 01:52:37 AM  
i've always made the determination of fold/no-fold/fork based on temperature(fork until i can finish a slice without dropping it mid-bite) and whether or not whoever sliced the thing passed geometry(after eating the one-inch wide piece, i'm going to fold the one that's wider than my head before i try and start)

i will say my preference for chicago style (pizza/casserole) is a direct result of getting to spend saturday afternoons playing trivial pursuit with my folks while dad was making one from scratch.  trying to move the board without losing anything so he could get out the board to roll out the crust was always fun...  never had authentic ny (pizza/cardboard) but i'm neutral on the issue.  when i want pizza i'll eat whatever style the place i'm at is serving.

Doing one's best to avoid mistakes like that is good.

Being a douchebag to foreigners who make those mistakes and then not accepting the fact that they fail at immediately melting in with the locals is worse, imo.

Except when it comes to things like all the folks south of the border who cannot wrap their minds around flushing toilet paper.  One explanation of our sewage system should be all it takes for you to stop leaving shiat paper in the trash can.

But something harmless, from pointing toes at someone else to sticking chopsticks in the rice? That should be forgiven.

Detroit deep dish is not a casserole.  You can easily pick up a slice without everything dumping all over the place.  I view that as the defining line between pizza and casserole.


Also, pineapple haters can suck a dick.  Or you know, just not eat pineapple on their pizza.  Everyone has a topping or two they don't like.
