Read the thread for the details...

Fresh clams are hard to come by in the Midwest but Chicago Italian-Americans have compensated with their famous walleye and lake perch pizzas.

Walleye cheeks are good stuff, especially deep-fried.

Ok, am I the only one who thinks that pizza should NOT involve fish? Fish should be breaded and deep fried or baked but NOT put on a pizza!

IMO, breading and deep frying fish is one of the worst things you can do to it. I say the same about chicken. I know in some parts of the country, saying such a thing is blasphemy.

In the midwest they may not have clams for their pizzas, but they do have Rocky Mountain oysters!!

I'm far from being a "snob". LOL Just pointing out I actually have - you know, living breathing family there and spend a considerable amount of time there with them...just like a social scientist may point out his or her credentials when speaking about a demographic issue.

Your trips via Norwegian Cruise lines don't give you that perspective.

And yes, you are clueless to every day Italian culture.

Ci sentiamo,

You continue to be a snobbish ass. And FYI, I did my junior year of college abroad in Rome,at Loyola University Chicago. And had my own apartment in the Center of Rome on Via Palermo, 5 minutes by foot from the Colosseum. Not to mention I've been to different parts of Italy dozens of times since. So don't think your cheap free-loading vacations, with family(probably in some god-forsaken village) make your opinion about pizza more important than mine. You are just a snobbish ass. Not too mention ignorant. How's that for social science. LOL! Only an ass like you would take my opinion about pizza and draw the connection I don't know anything about everyday Italian culture, I stand behind everything I said in my original statement. Liking one pizza from another is about taste, not about knowing, or not knowing a culture. But, that's what makes you a ignorant, snobbish, ass. The fact that you could take a benign statement about prefering the taste of American pizza over Italian pizza, and launch into a diatribe about Italian culture. You wanted to feel good about yourself for having family in Italy and thought this would be the perfect time to show me and everyone how well you know Italy. So this will be the last time I acknowledge a baffoon like you.

So, Vaf*******!, che *****! LOL! LOL!

They ain't bad either. Once an old time boilermaker who had a farm brought a bunch out to the job and breaded and fried them up at lunch, they were kind'a like veal cutlets. Very rich though, couldn't eat more than a couple.
