Howdy fellow DF'ers,

Wednesday, September 5th takes us to...
"National Cheese Pizza Day"


The following are the "Five Food Finds about Pizza" from Foodimentary.com


- About 93% of Americans eat at least one pizza every month.
- About 350 slices of pizza are consumed every second in the United States.
- The most pizzas are delivered (and eaten) on New Years Day, New Years Eve, Halloween, Thanksgiving Eve, and Super Bowl Sunday.
- The three dots in the Dominos Pizza logo represent the first three Dominos Pizza stores.
- Pepperoni is the most popular pizza topping in the United States.

I know that this can be a heated conversation... But as I am from Chicago, I prefer "Chicago Style" Deep-Dish / Pan pizzas.


Tho... New York style pizzas are good too!



I've never been a true fan of the "California Style" pizzas.

1997: Mother Teresa died of a heart attack in Calcutta. She was 87.
1992: Andrew "Dice" Clay marries his longtime live-in lover Trinie
1991: John Travolta married Kelly Preston
1987: After 30 years on television, Dick Clarks American Bandstand was canceled.



And... HERE'S some weird news:
1999: La-Z-Boy introduced its new Oasis recliner in Detroit. Designed for TV football fans, the tilt-back chair was equipped with a telephone, heat, a massager, and a cooler large enough to chill a six-pack.

I love Freddie and all but I wish people would stop giving birthday wishes to the dead.
The only time I'll eat pepperoni pizza is on deep-dish. What's California style? How does it differ from New York (the best) to Chicago?

Isn't California style really just 'fresh, non traditional ingredients?' like Avocado Kale Duck Sausage Pizza or whatever?

Copied from Wikipedia

Chicago-style pizza is mainly used to describe the deep-dish style of pizza away from the Chicagoland area. The deep-dish pizza differs in a few key ways from what pizza is typically known as: the crust is thick and is deep, so as to resemble a pie more than a flatbread; the toppings are assembled in reverse, with the cheese being on the bottom layer, followed by any additional toppings, and then the sauce.



New York style pizza is generally has large, wide, foldable thin hand-tossed crust, made from a high-gluten bread flour. It is traditionally hand-tossed and light on sauce.


California-style pizza is a style of single-serving pizza that combines New York and Italian thin crust with toppings from the California cuisine cooking style.

BBQ chicken pizza should be against the law. I'm looking at you, California Pizza Kitchen of Terribleness.

I think about my dead relatives on their birthdays. I guess it's not the same as wistfully longing for Freddie Mercury, but still.

When I was 18 and had never seen pineapple on pizza before, it was new and interesting. By the 3rd time or so, I was over it.

Pineapple. Just say no, kids.

Agreed on the fish, too. You can keep your clam pizza, thanks. I'll have mine with linguine, like sane people do. Also - cheesy, gloppy casserole with shrimp or crap in it. Barf.

I do not like hot fruit. Keep it off my pizza.

Although I do like artichoke heart, feta pizza but I'm a fruit from CA.
