    Default Pizza: Thick or Thin

    Thick or thin crust?

    Whatchya got. And... as long as we are talking pizza, Who makes the best pizza?

    Edwardos?
    Lou Malnatis?

    Lots of good chains out there. Better yet are the small greasy Mom & Pop pizzeria's.

    One of my fav's, and I'm not sure if it's still there, is Father and Son pizza in Chicago. I remember skipping school back in the 80's and going to shytown. That pizza I will never forget...

    How bout you? Any good pizza places where you live or have visited?

    Wow, no kidding. I'll have to put that on my bucket list and get back there some day. That pizza really did kick ass, I still remember sitting down there and getting a plastic pie shaped pizza cutter with the logo on it. On Milwaukee avenue, I'm pretty sure.

    We have a place here in Boise called Flying Pie Pizza. It is a local favorite. Their pizza crust is about like Domino's or Pizza Hut. Most of the other places go for that New York style pizza. Blech. Super thin crust. If you are a fan on NYS pizza then don't take offense, but I think people around here make NYS pizza to cut costs and charge a premium.

    If I pay over $20 for a pizza and I can eat the whole darn thing in one sitting... then the crust is too thin and the toppings too sparse.

    I have been thinking about checking out lou malnatis's web page and having a couple fed-exed to me. When growing up my dad delivered for congress pizza. It was so good and they made their own sausage. We have this little place called Tony & Maries pizza. It is expensive like $28-32 for the large but you need two hands to hold the box. It is at least twice if not more heavy than a pizza hut pie.

    Ah yes, sign of a great pizza is when you need 2 hands to carry it! I remember a place down in Indiana near Fort Wayne that charged by the pound. Good stuff.

    Fresh toppings, great crust and lotza cheese please!

    I still need to try a Canadian bacon and pineapple pizza some day.

    Sorry but I'm weighing in on this Pizza Talk... And yes it's New York Style Thin Crust, Golden Oil running down your arm, Hot Roof of your Mouth Burning cheese, Folded in your Hand MMMMmmmmmm!!!!

    On the other hand, where I now live , I found an Italian Restaurant that offered a Scampi Pizza. Man I wet myself it was that good. White cheese with plenty of garlic and shrimp!!!

    Don't be sorry. If you like thin then that's the best pizza. I like thick myself, but if I was offered thin you bet I'd take it. I wouldn't have shrimp, white sauce and all that other strange shit on it tho, but I'd take it. Just kiddin buddy

    I remember a place when I was in Cancun, Mexico. It was an upscale Italian place with surprisingly good pizza. I went back a few times. I can't remember the name but I do remember walking down a flight of stairs to enter this place. It was strange to me anyway, normal for Mexico.

    You hit on an important point when it comes to pizza, wine, or whatever. The best pizza out there is what YOU like. Not what everyone else likes.

    Thick crust pan pizza at my house. It's like a crunchy, buttery breadstick attached to the end of each slice. Mmmm-boy. I'm one of those skinny guys who eats like a horse. I can devour those thin pizzas and still want more. But you guys are right. If I come over and you hand me a thin crust, I ain't gonna be griping about it.

    The pizza joint down the street has a thin crust with all fresh fixings they cut it into squares instead of pie shape. My guilty pleasure is the cream cheese with Canadian bacon and black olives-makes the beer go down fast

    As an afterthought, I could have put a couple more options in the poll.

    Thin, medium, thick, and deep dish. Now they have something called a cracker crust.

    I prefer a medium crust AND I also like a good deep dish. Papa Murphys has the stuffed pizza. That is a favorite of mine.

    Thick crust for me. A fellow locator, who is larger than me in size, told me he will pop a large frozen pizza in the oven when he gets home late in the night after a hectic day of locating, fold it in half when it cools down and uses two hands to eat it like a taco.................... My kind of Man!
