  • Hello all. There are three major pizza centers in the US:

    - New York: typically either baked (or burnt) in a 700 degree farenheit coal oven; or a gigantic thin, floppy, greasy pie meant to be eaten in slices.

    - Chicago: also two kinds: the deep dish pan variety that many accurately call a casserole; or a thin crust meaty pie cut into rectangles "party" fashion

    - California: baked in wood burning ovens, topped with leaner meats and more vegetables than the others

    New York & Chicago loves to argue about which is best. Californians are content to lie in the sun and watch us bicker.

    There are other types: Detroit has a pan type with more carmelized (burnt) cheese and crust; St Louis has an abomidable concoction with cracker crust and processed cheese; and Denver has a thick crust with a side of honey (!) for dipping.

    In all areas there seem to be a resurgence of places making "authentic" marghareta italian pies with fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato. Then we Americans lump meat on top!

    So to conclude, from a global perspective, not really different than any other aspect of food that we've bastardized and destroyed. God bless 'murrica!

    • I lived in St. Louis and their thin pizza crust is delicious. You just have to know where to get it. Chicago‚Äôs pan pie was too much for me.

  • And as a a celebration, you should send all of us a pizza of our choice.

    On second thoughts, it might go bad by the time it comes.
