I love how people think that the only pizza available in Chicago is deep dish. There really aren't that many places that serve it!

Ok here’s my take:

Neapolitan is the best kind of pizza, followed by NY, then Greek, then Chicago. All these styles can be great, but Greek pizza is usually terribly executed. Deep dish is barely pizza, but it’s pretty good if you wanna consume 2000 calories in a slice. Hipster pizza is Neapolitan crust that aspires to be a cracker, topped with arugula and confit and Gorgonzola. NY pizza is almost always a safe bet, like going into a sports bar and the best beer option is Sam Adams in a “fine, this works and I know what I’m getting into” kind of way.

Swimming-pool pizza is for tourists.

Chicagoans tend to eat cracker crust cut in party squares or the semi-thick pan pizza with carmelized cheese/tomato sauce on the edges, as popularized by the late great Burt Katz (Pequod's, Gulliver's, Burt's Place).

We have excellent examples of both. The best 'Chicago' pizza in the Chicago area is probably Vito and Nick's cracker crust on the far South Side. It's better than literally the single best slice of New York pizza that has ever existed.

There's a certain strain of people who are really into Lou Malnati's. It's not that great. Weak sister pan pie and kinda not that great thin.

That is a very effective video to express why I hate pizza.

LOL. Yes, Vito and Nick's is better than any of the cracker crust bullshit I've had in this city, but nowhere near decent NY pizza.

The best pizza of any kind I've had in the midwest is actually at the Anodyne coffee on KK in Milwaukee, I'm guessing you've had it? Neapolitan, perfect charred crust, not too thin or soupy in the middle. I get the one with anchovies.

Man, Pequod's has been disappointing recently. We go pretty regularly to the Morton Grove one and it's been bland as fuck.

Pizza’s great. I’m incredibly lucky because the chip shop near me does genuinely world class pizzas, which is bizarre. But world class they most definitely are, award winning as a matter of fact. Bless the West End Fryer. Yeah the article’s seven years old, whatever, Ralph’s still there and the King stays the King.

One time I got a gyro in the hood and the cook asked if I wanted cheese on it because that's how they do. I refer to those as black gyros.

Spoiler alert: I got it with cheese, because that's how I do.

I've been to the Webster Place one a couple of times in the last 6 months and have also been disappointed.

Conversely, I've also been to Piece a few times on some weekdays I've had off and it has been fantastic every time. Too bad it is a shitshow on the weekends.

I could never get into the Chicago thin crust party square bullshit pizza. But, never had Vito's, so I'm sure there are good examples.

...I think most of the pizza in Seattle, even from the small local chains, are better than almost anything I had in Chicago!

But, it's all pizza, and it's good! You have to REALLY try to fuck up pizza IMO...like when my mom used ketchup instead of tomato sauce for a pizza when I was a kid. Now that was some wack ass white trash 'za (doesn't even deserve to be called pizza).

I encountered the movie popcorn version of this in one of my first jobs as a teenager at a little second-run theater, where the order would be "Large popcorn and a cup of cheese." Just the nacho cheese stuff in a dipping cup for a 50 cent extra charge. Not a single whitey -- ever, not once -- asked for it. Which seemed odd, because it was a brilliant way to turn our mediocre popcorn into something special.

White pizza is any pizza w/o red sauce. That is how every "Neapolitan-inspired" place I have ever been or worked at refers to it, anyway.

You're missing the joke. Pizza is Italian. Italians are white. Ergo white pizza. Sicily has the whole Moor history. How's my mansplaining going? :P
