HotIgneous Intruder: I wince every time I see somebody hold up a piece of pizza and fold it to better stuff in their pie holes.
Ugh.

You can hold it up flat and take bites, cretins.


But then you just look like an imbecile diving face-first into his food, like a fat kid burying his face into the chocolate cake.

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.

Got that?

Polyhazard: What the hell is up with these pics of round pizzas cut into squares? That is not okay. You have pieces without a crust to hold, you monsters!


When we first moved to Albuquerque, we quickly learned that getting pie shaped pizza was a special request.

There's this place called Papa John's which opened down the street from me, now that's some authentic pizza.

Seriously though, I live in St. Louis and never got the thin crust thing, but this is some of the best pizza I've ever had.

Oh it's more than okay.  You fold 'em in half.

So wish I could get that style of pizza in San Diego.


Same.  All I can find is either New York style shiat or pizza like Filippi's Pizza Grotto where you at least got some of the cheesiness but its still cut into fark'n triangle slices.

No, it normally comes in the shape of a balloon, with red chile.

Try Il Vicinio or The Slice Parlor on Central, I don't think I've ever gotten a non-round pizza at either.

Hehe. I thought the same thing.

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.

/fiance has a theory that you're always trying to find the pizza from your childhood.

I just have to say, the pizzeria in the article is a couple blocks from my sister's house, and they make awesome farking pizza.

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.

ArcadianRefugee: 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


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.

That's the best time not to use a fork. Taco that shiat.
