This or That
Deep-dish or thin crust. One of the most heavily debated regional foods around. Where do you stand?
Both. They are different entities and to pit them against each other is ridiculous. I grew up in the Chicago are and I have always loved good deep dish. I miss the original Uno's and Due's and remember eating there before the franchising got in the way of the delicious pizza. The original Gino's on Rush, though riddled with...issues... made a great deep dish. I like thin crust just fine, but put it in a different category than "artisan" or "Neopolitan" style pizza. One of my fondest family food memories is getting thin crust pizza at Barnaby's on Rand Road in the 'burbs as a kid. Best thin crust ever. I love Spacca Napoli for a more authentic Neopolitan pizza. I like to appreciate different styles for what they are. I am not a huge fan of the NY style floppy wedge, but I can appreciate its appeal, especially when stumbling around Manhattan a wee bit tipsy. I think it's silly when people say deep dish isn't pizza or thin crust shouldn't be cut into squares. I love regional variations on food, especially simple food like pizza.
