We still have a lot to learn about how this forum feels about pizza.

I like Chicago Pizza, but it's more like a tomato and cheese pie than pizza.

I also voted Chicago, but for me that means the crispy square-cut thin crust (also called tavern style) rather than deep dish (I do like deep dish, it's just not what I think of when I think of pizza).

Pizza bianca: Pizza dough with sprinkling of salt, drizzle of olive oil and (fresh) chopped rosemary. Yum!

No tomato, no cheese.

Pretty much, it might be good, but it's not pizza.

I won't EVEN dignify this snark by pointing out the facts here: 1) @Knaldskalle isn't American as far as I know - but he can clarify as he chooses 2) pizza bianca is Italian, not American and 3) Most American pizzas DO have tomato sauce and cheese. It's pesky foreigners ruining our appropriated favourite food that do things like tuna, mayo and corn and call it pizza!

If the Aussies put a hamburger and beetroot on their pizzas are you going to blame us for that too! Be careful how you answer that, wars have started over more mundane things... (D:)

[Oops, guess I did dignify. My bad. Forget everything I wrote. Move along. Nothing to see here.] :cowboy:

Over the last year or two, I have been slowly hitting all the top-rated pizza places in New York City. Hit another one tonight, as a matter of fact. Some time soon I'll have tried them all.

It's good to be alive.

Tomato Pie is pretty popular in Philly which is just bread and tomato sauce.

I do really like white pizza which is just bread and cheese with a lot of garlic.

Never tried it, but that's no pizza indeed more like pie or quiche.
Of course Neapolitan pizza is the only real pizza, the rest is pizza like other sparkling wines are champagne. They can be nice, but can't beat the real thing.

How do people here feel about flamkuchen?

Neopolitan is indeed the way to go. Other styles can be good too (and I really quite a bit of pizza when I was in NY and liked all of them), but nothing really is "better" than the original.

And Flammkuchen is something I really like once in a while too. Although there are all kinds of regional versions all over Europe.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Maybe we should do a favorite type of flamkuchen poll. :P

Well, I lived in New Haven for a decade and I don't know what distinguishes its pizza from New York pizza in terms of style.

Fuck Neapolitan, New York Brick Oven all the way.

Flamkuchen is delicious.
