A gooey hunk of Sicilian pizza.
Good call. For me, though, it's Chicago style pizza. Preferably from Gino's East.
They don't even know what Sicilian pizza is out here.  I'm not joking.  This place is the absolute pits.  :boo hiss: :boo hiss: :boo hiss:
I have to admit I wasn't even sure of what it was.   Looks really close to Chicago style...is it the same?   I guess growing up around Chicago, they'd want to claim the world's most delicious food.
Now that you mention it, I think it is.  They call it Sicilian pizza there.  I'm sure it is just as good, if not better, in Chicago.  

I often think if anyone from the east coast wants to make a killing, they ought to come out here and start a real bagel place and a real pizza place.

Did some digging last night cause I was curious what would even be open late at night in Des Moines that my parents and I would go to in Des Moines. My plane doesn't land till 10pm delay-free, and by the time we get out of the airport it's going to be midnight. Need some good American grub.

Found a sports bar that's open till 1am :drool:

Hell yeah.


THere's one 30 minutes from me and now a Lou Malnatis opened about 25 minutes and Giordanos has always been about a half hour.

I do have to say, moving to wisconsin wasn't too bad, pizza wise. They don't f**k around up here, as evidenced by all the lard asses

I don't know if there's a market for Chicago style pizza outside of Chicago. There is an Aurelio's in the Twin Cities but for Chicago style that's all we have around here, I'd be calling him for one here if it would do any good.

You're in Seattle, right?

You're probably out of luck then.    At least you have a Rocky Rococo's...those are good though nowhere near a really good Chicago style pizza.   I knew when one of the first things that came up was Papa Murphy's you were probably SOL.

I never heard of a "take and bake" pizza place until I came out here.  I thought it was a joke, but they actually exist.  It astounded me that anyone would go to a pizza place and  pay ten dollars for a pizza they had to come home and back themselves.  :unsure:

They're not even cheaper (or better) than the chain pizza places (well, maybe Little Caesar's Diarrhea Emporium).

It is. It's from Applebees. Here's the description.

Chunky Roma pepper relish is piled over our 7 oz. sirloin. Served with red potatoes and a grilled portobello mushroom cap stuffed with a creamy artichoke cheese spread.
