Aaahhh...now we're talking about a really important, world shaking, event.

This is the stuff whole careers rest upon.

Discussed...;)

This.

Despite living very close to NYC, great city.

But when it comes to Pizza, Chicago takes it. Liking new york style pizza should be punishable by hard labor.
But putting those toxic green bell peppers on anything should be punishable by summary execution.

Righty.

I'm Italian and that's how pizza should be eaten.

Can't really see anything wrong with it as it's the most polite way.

Of course, one could use his hands too, fold the slice in half to create a U-shape at the crust and eat it that way, but as I said it wouldn't be the most polite way...

Happy pizza to everyone :)

Hm. Can't really see what the issue is; must be one of those 'cultural differences' that divide the two western continents.

In any case, most Europeans (myself included) eat pizza with a knife and fork........takeaway pizza is the only pizza I have ever seen eaten by hand.

By the way, I always think of New York style pizza as the ones made at Lombardi's Pizza in New York City. That's about as close to the pizza you eat in Italy as you can get in NYC.

Anyway, when it comes to cuisine faux pas that made people do this, :rolleyes: nothing beats in recent years then-Senator John Kerry's trip to Philadelphia and eating a cheesesteak sandwich at Pat's King of Steaks in 2004.

Nothing wrong with a good cheesesteak ;)

Just avoid getting that awful Cheese Wiz on it, go for provolone.

And its worth to note that American pizza and Italian pizza really aren't all the same.

As long as you don't chew open mouthed, who cares?
People who like good pizza dammit! /s

That said ,Chicago style pizza even beats Pizza I've had in Italy. Let alone NYC crap.

Bah, who cares about New York or Chicago? California-style pizzas are where it's at!
I blame California-style pizza for the era when many restruants just tossed random flotsam from the kitchen onto a vaguely round hunk of dough and then grilled it.

California-style pizza is the Chop Suey of pizza.


Also, people who eat pizza with a knife and fork should be viewed with suspicion. They're clearly aliens who missed a briefing.

They pound the sausage into a *thin sheet* that they then put on the pizza (under the sauce) so you get some in every bite. It's to DIE FOR.

I was going to suggest Papa Gino's on Lygon street in the Melbourne, Australia suburb of Carlton, but this may just trump them.. And that's saying a lot, with the huge Italian population they have there. They take their parm and Romano cheeses and mix them in with the sauce.

But sausage underneath? You have my attention! ;)

Thank you for posting this. When I hear anyone call that doughy thick crap they serve in Chicago, pizza, it makes me nuts. Stewart was able to capture my feelings perfectly.

Let's not even talk about the hot dogs that they drag through the garden with sweet things and little hot peppers and pickles. It's a gosh darn hot dog! Eat your sides separately! Have some cole slaw. Have a few pickles. Why do you have to cram it into your hot dog?

By the way - I would have said Goddamn hot dog, but I'm trying to stay in context, doncha know?

And, being from Boston, don't even get me started on the way they pronounce hot dog. Sweet Jebus!
