Eddie Adams from Torrance: You misspelled Casserole.

So true. It's so deep. Now I love a good crust (hate authentic Italian pizza, which has nearly nothing on it) but damnit too thick.

Yeah, yeah.  Chicago pizza is a casserole.  Yeah, New York pizza is a greasy cheese cracker.

I like both.  Why take sides?

I like the pizza that comes to my door. Especially if a pretty lady brings it, and I don't fall down the stairs. I usually just order gyros, though.

Chicago "pizza" is really tomato soup in a bread bowl.   That said, the best pizza is from hole-in-wall parlors in Jersey.

Just to add my two cents, whatever Chicago calls pizza isn't pizza, and it's shiat.

sycraft: Place that has good Pizza you wouldn't expect? Tucson.

No idea why, but there are actually multiple extremely good pizza joints of varying styles. Not like "OMG THE BEST EVAR!!!1111one" but amazingly good and who the hell would think Tucson for pizza?

There is a place called the Standard in Yuma AZ, that serves awesome pizza, NY style of course. Chicago style is not pizza but delicious all the while.

Foolish mortals!  Everyone KNOWS the best pizza is in Saint Freakin' Louis

Yeast free, unleavened dough that is more cracker like than any crap New York can come up with.  More oregano than the typical Greek mountainside.  Some strange block of pasteurized process "cheese food" to go on top...

...and... oh lord, who am I kidding, I'd rather eat a New York cracker pizza than this crap.

/That said, NOTHING beats a Chicago pepperoni & Italian sausage casserole in a bread bowl.

these pizza threads are always identical...yet i still, for some reason, enter them.

my $0.02 + delivery fee:

there is good pizza and there is great pizza. unless it's burnt, no pizza is "bad".

there may be pizza toppings i don't want...i.e. pineapple. i LOVE pineapple! seriously, i could eat it till all the acid blisters my mouth quite badly, but it is not something i want on my pizza! also, anything extra hot&spicy. my mouth simply can't handle much spice, and i don't want overbearing spice anyway.

also, i found in my 5 months in northeast italy that the italians will put pretty much ANYTHING on pizza. funny a food lover, one of the first things i do in a foreign country is to learn their words for menu/ingredient items. well, i went to eat pizza with one of the guys i was deployed with, and he and i ordered. after the waitress walked off, i said to him "so, you like brussells sprouts on pizza, huh?" he said "really? i ordered brussells sprouts on pizza? they have that?!? i just found one and pointed". of course he got it, didn't like it. i tried it, didn't like it. i kept telling him "pizza is about $4 here, and we're not in a the dumb-american card, ask for another pizza, enjoy". he was too embarrassed. i was too full to care, having eaten my entire prosciutto & cream pizza, which i knew was prosciutto & cream upon ordering because i knew the italian words for them, and had also had it before and knew it was delicious.

/regularly eats little caesars (omg, their deep deep dish is yummy!) and 7-11 pizzas.
//because they're cheap and tasty, and i have a family of 4 to feed
///and wifey works at 7-11

AgentPothead: Chicago style pizza is a casserole. Real pizza is not a casserole, so saying Chicago style pizza is the best implies you don't even know what the fark a pizza is. Par for the course for Americans. Create something that has nothing to do with the original, then co-opt the name. Football, pizza, democracy. It's the American way!

Lighten up, Francis.
