Chicago has two types of pizza which people often overlook.

One is deep dish and the other is thin crust.

Almost everyone I know likes thin crust.

I just looked on yelp, and there are almost 850 small pizza joints in Chicago, and almost 2,800 places in the city that serve pizza (restaurants, bars, etc). My immediate neighborhood has 46! No wonder I always end up with a huge piece of pizza hanging out of my mouth when I get drunk.
Did you just Google that?

But even their thin crust is not that good. If you can not fold it in the middle its not real pizza.

Chicago style thin crust is great, though. You get that crunch in the crust that just can't be beat.

Pizza that you have to fold to eat is just too sloppy and greasy to me.

Not all foldable pizza is greasy lol. I will say that Dominos Brooklyn Style Pizza is by far the worst pizza I've ever had in my life, it was very soggy and drenched with grease, I don't even want to think about it.

Detroit has some good pizza. Don't let Dominos or little caesars cloud your mind of what represents Detroit in the pizza business.

haha! Sbarro? Hardly the best pizza in NYC.

NYC's the original. It's #1 in more ways than one.
