(CNN)   Military developing pizza for troops that can be included in MRE rations, still be considered edible after sitting on a shelf for three years. Sounds just like a New York slice   (eatocracy.cnn.com) divider line 44

I'll stick with the omelet or spaghetti and my stash of Tabasco.

True, that does sound like a New York slice, because as everyone knows, Chicago style is inedible even when fresh out of the oven.

There's no way they'd be able to jam a Chicago pizza slice into an MRE anyway, whereas a New York slice could just be rolled up like a burrito.

Dude, that omelet was nasty. Second only to chicken ala shiat. The spaghetti, monkey nuts and rice, and the corned beef hash MREs were pretty edible, though.

What Chicago style?  They only have this pizza casserole thing on every corner of the city. Its not even that good.

There's no Chicago style. They make cakes.

Tastes fine, but its just not pizza. There wouldn't be any arguments if they just stopped calling their cakes for pizzas tbh.

The ham slice wasn't bad at all. Not sure if they still make that one, though.

The most common style of pizza you can get in Chicago is a thin crust where the crust is cracker-like, there's very little sauce, the cheese is melted into a solid sheet and the whole thing is cut into tiny squares. Why The Hague has not weighed in on it is beyond me.

I agree completely, I'm not arguing which tastes better, but Chicago-style is a casserole, not a pizza.

MAC & CHEESE ftw.

Only MRE worth fighting over.

As opposed to a Chicago pile of pizza, which is barely edible when it's fresh.

I think that was after my time. I will confirm, however, that they all tasted better if you could get a hold of a heater bag.

Chicken and rice or spaghetti.  No question.
Worst was the tuna and noodles though.  Hands down.  Looked like cat food, smelled like cat food, pretty sure it tasted like cat food.  I'd rather chew on my boot than eat the thrice damned tuna and noodles.

Usually in these threads I assume that half of the people disparaging Chicago-style pizza have never actually had one. You will now be lumped into that group. Also, you apparently have no idea what a cake is or how one is made. I mean, the "casserole" crowd are sad, mistaken people, but you've made them seem only laughably wrong, instead of ridiculously so.

That's why I laugh at the New York idiots who lambaste Chicago style pizza. They don't even know what they are talking about. Traditional Chicago style is the thin cracker crust cut into squares.

The deep dish is a newer invention and not as commonplace. Both are really good, mainly because the sauce is usually very flavorful. New York style is greasy and bland.

According to Ray Stevenson's Punisher, the MRE with Chuckles is the best one. (I think it was the breakfast set, and they might be holdovers from Vietnam or thereabouts.)

// my brother only started eating oatmeal when, on a wintertime FTX, it was the only thing on the tray still hot after eating a cold omelet, cold bread, and cold whateverelse

One of my best friends felt the same way.  It was great, I could always trade if I ended up with it.  Though the tuna did come with pound cake, so it had that going for it.  (didn't have chocolate and peanut butter though)

Chili mac and chicken fajitas are the best MREs. No question.

Thin crust is always better, but pizza tastes worser when cut into squares.
I'm a New Yorker who has only ever had deep dish, and it's fine, but it's not what I would want if I ordered a pizza. This other kind you talk about, I would give that a try.

After my time, I'm afraid.  I can see Chili mac being decent, the concept of fajita MREs kind of scare me though.

Jr. year in high school we hid a leftover little ceasars pizza (whole pie, still in box) under a cabinet in the science building. We went back a year later, pulled it out and it looked virtually the same. We put it back under the cabinet. I like to think it's still there today (15 years later), a modern fossil.

I trained myself into it because of that. We went a loooong time (well long to me- over a month, but I'm sure others easily beat that) with only MREs and because it was unpopular, I had a constant stream.

/now I recall, I did like the tuna and noodles....

I will admit that I worked for a place in Florida that had really good New York style pizza. Yeah, I know, Florida, but don't laugh.

The owner brought his own recipe down from New York and I did gain an appreciation for the New York style. Used all quality ingredients, including Grande cheese, handmade dough with imported bottled water and hand ground tomato sauce.

The sauce was still bland compared to Chicago style but the quality ingredients and proper preparation made for a delicious pie.

I still prefer Chicago pizza.

I don't really care what group you lump me into.

But FYI I have never been to Chicago, but I've eaten Deeppan plenty of times. And I liked it a lot.

Your butthurt is simply that you insist on calling something that is not a pizza, for pizza.

So you have had 1 type of Chicago pizza. People like you see deep dish and think it is "Chicago Style" pizza. It is only on type of Chicago style pizza.
