Funny, I think both Chicago and NY pizza s$%k! As does Boston, BTW! Once you've had pizza in RI, you can't really take any place else in this country seriously.

New York style!! Chicago pizza is nasty. It's basically a bowl of tomato sauce with cheese on top. Yuck

Chicago doesn't really have a local pizza style.

That deep-dish slop is a cassarole. There's nothing pizza-like about it.

But it's not like you have an ax to grind or anything.

Is deep-dish pizza casserole-like? Of course it is

Is there anything in deep-dish pizza that is remotely authetic, Italian, or pizza-like? Of course not

Do you have an ax to grind? Of course you do.

You're ignoring the fact that Chicago has two types anyway.

Every city has its own pizza traditions, but clearly "Chicago-style" pizza refers to the deep-dish casserole style.

California Pizza Kitchen by far is the best pizza in the universe.

What? Why are you looking at me like that?
