HERETIC!!!!

Jon Stewart's right. I gave Chicago pizza a shot, but it was like eating a brick of cheese and washing it down with a can of tomato sauce. I'll take thin-crust New York/New Haven style any day, man...

I'm assuming you've had Pepe's Pizza before? And still prefer the pizza bread-bowl?

New Haven style is better than NY style.

Chicago style is more of a casserole of some kind. I like it, but it's not very pizza like.

Florida: The Everglades Pie at Evan’s Neighborhood Pizza in Fort Myers
A little over a year ago, the owners of Evan’s Neighborhood Pizza had an idea: Why not put python on a pizza? Thus, their Everglades pizza was born. But it’s not just snake on a pie. Owner Evan Daniell adds whole frog legs and alligator sausage for extra flair. He gets the python from Vietnam for roughly $66 per pound. The frog legs come from China, and the gator from the local fish market.  :scared:

Well, alligator is tasty and frog legs can be good too. The chances I've had to try python in Vietnam and other parts, I was outvoted so we all went to another restaurant.
I'd try that Florida pizza. I can't imagine it being THAT bad

You might be right goose. But I'd still give it a go without a second thought. However, a deal breaker would be if it smelled bad (establishment and dish)

It's practically a crime for me to say this as I'm from New Haven, but I've always preferred thicker crust pizza over thin crust. If I ever go to Chicago, I'm definitely going to try real deep dish pizza. I've only had it from chain restaurants like Uno's, but even that was pretty good.
It's the absolute best.   Gino's East is my favorite, but you really can't go wrong.
I second this.  Gino's East is amazing.  Lou Malnati's is a close second.

The only gator I've ever had was kind of greasy and full of deadly spiny pointy sharp little bones.  I was scared to finish it after about the 4th time I choked.

I've been to Chicago several time, it's a great city. I took my wife to Gino's East and enjoyed what they call deep dish pizza. It's good, very good. But I'm a New Yorker and I'll take a slice over deep dish any day.

By the way, if you ever visit New York, do not get a slice anywhere in Midtown. It's not pizza.

New York City pizza annihilates this glop.  Chicago should stick to hot dogs.
NY pizza is to Chicago style pizza as Katy Perry is to Rush.

Balderdash.  Were we talking hockey teams or general cleanliness, Chicago would dominate New York without question.  But pizza is NYC's turf.

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.

Who do you think invented pizza?

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.

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.
There are probably millions of Chinese that believe they invented Italy itself
