I love all of Stewart's rants, but being the pizza slut that I am, I disagree on substance. I love Chicago pizza in all of its goopy glory just as I love the elegant simplicity of Neapolitan.

Jeez Mike, up until now I thought your palate for food & wine was perfect. May the Gods save me from goopy glory.

I love to stop once in a while to get an individual deep dish pizza at UNO's; no problem.

What can I say? I plead guilty to loving virtually every manifestation of pizza that uses decent ingredients. If the sauce is good and the toppings are of good quality, then any combination of sauce, crust (either chewy or crispy), and cheese will make me happy.

Case in point: we had pizza from Zelda's last night. They've been at the same location for decades and put out pizza based on a style Zelda brought with her from Chicago. It's a deep dish pizza with a crust that verges on a savory pastry rather than a regular pizza crust. It has a lively crunch to it irrespective of how much sauce is poured into it. Their pesto pizza is absolutely wonderful, with nothing but pesto, plenty of cheese, and tomato slices. It's pretty firm due to the cheese and the thickness of the pesto - Stewart's rat would not be able to swim in this one. Unfortunately, Zelda passed away a couple of years ago and the pizza has been a bit less consistent since then. Still, last night's was excellent.

Let me know if you get into Sactown anytime soon, Lou. I think you might find you like their version. If not, both it and the Neapolitan pizza we get to replace it are on me. :wink:

I suppose fair-minded people do have to admit that many styles of pizza can be done well. And most pizza in both cities is horrible. But, as a native New Yorker, the bit was still quite funny!

It does not hold a candle to his Sarah Palin/Donald Trump pizza rant.

I am not a fan of Chicago style pizza., If I want to cover bread with red sauce and cheese it is one thing. It does not satisfy my craving for pizza. My preference is pizza with a thin crisp crust.

Agree; although I prefer NY style, Zachary's deep dish spinach here in Berkeley is pretty tasty. But this rant had me laughing out loud. "Marinara hot tub for rats"
