Pan or deep dish pizza. Yuck. Hand-tossed, thin or flatbread? Count me in!
Pizza is always a big bone of contention. Chicagoans and New Yorkers can argue for hours about what a real pizza is. I love a Chicago deep-dish pie but, to me, the dish isn't quite pizza.
Here, a proper pizza should have a thin, crisp crust with a little sauce, cheese and no more than two toppings. Anything more makes the pizza impossible to fold and every New Yorker knows that the proper way to eat a slice of pizza Is to fold it in half and start at the point, chowing down stringy cheese as you go. Anything that has to be eaten with a knife and fork is suspect.
We can agree with relatives who live near Chicago that their version is the 'Dionysian' style while ours is the 'Apollonian' style. Then, we order in Chinese or Barbecue instead of arguing.
Please, let us not get into the debate about Barbecue.
