Nope.  I know NYC wants to take credit for everything popular, and I realize the first pizzeria in the US was opened in New York, but they didn't invent it.

That is not a pizza, that's a pie. Real authentic pizza has a thin crusty crust and is not smothered in cheese and toppings. The old saying "less is more" certainly applies to a great pizza! :yes:
Mmm.. are you judging without having tried? In America, pizza is sometimes referred to as a pizza pie. Real Chicago deep dish is deep delicious! :)

Well I have yet to have the pleasure of going to Chicago, but I have tasted a deep pan pizza. I'm more to authentic italian style pizza ;)

Quite true.  New York wasn't the creator when it came to pizza.  But they were the CONQUEROR.  :P

Chicago Deep Dish is an insult to the word "pizza"

It's like calling Olive Garden "Italian food"

Olive Garden and Deep Dish pizza places aren't restaurants, they're just feeding centers.

Invented in Naples, Italy, with history back even further. As far as I know, the Neapolitans weren't big on drenching their pizza in grease prior to serving.

No wonder they never received the accolades that New York's finest pizza makers have.  ;)

Then it wasn't pizza, was it :)

Everyone and their mother claims to have invented pizza.  Last I looked into it, the idea we have of a modern pizza was started in the northeast corner of the US by Italian immigrants and popularized throughout Europe by American servicemen who wanted some real damn Italian food, not the shit the Italians were cooking and serving (think of the Sopranos episode when Tony and the gang go to Italy).

But if you define pizza broadly enough, I'm pretty sure that the Chinese claim they made it first.

Yeah, but you're living in a place where they ruin pizza with mayonnaise and fried eggs.  Of course anything from North America is going to look like manna from heaven.


I must admit that it's partly a prejudice against the "New York attitude" (i.e., no matter how wonderful/awful something is in Some Other City, it's always ten times better/worse in NY.  Nothing can possibly have any cultural relevance at all unless NYC has embraced it, AND they make everything better).  Their pizza is fine though I won't eat it with pepperoni because then it really is too much orange grease.  I just prefer Chicago style because it is an excuse to drown in cheese.  I loves me some good cheese.

Nah Mara. I had this idea about NYC and Chicago pizza years before I moved to this land of shitty pizza. I'll say this: I bet 90% of those here wouldn't turn down a slice of pizza no matter which city it came from and no matter how much they claimed one was crap.

Oh Mara, I forgot: besides the fried egg and mayo on the pizza that you mentioned, there are the potato wedges and shredded tuna sharing space atop the zza. Demented!

I only know of 2 or 3 places where I can get good pizza out here. And none of them come close to resembling Chicago pizza
