I live in Chicago and find the obsession with Chicago "deep dish" pizza annoying. It's just a tomato quiche. There was a place on Hubbard that made a proper New York style pizza, but not surprisingly, it went out of business.


Wayne-I guess it's like anything else...we get tired of what we see/hear every day at home, while those sorts of things are novelties to out-of-town visitors.
I can kind of see the tomato quiche comparison, but that doesn't strike me as all bad. I'm not sure I'd want a steady diet of stuffed pizza, though...way too much food! Our Giordano's pizza had a crispy enough crust, and soggy crust is my pet peeve (no matter what style of pizza I'm having).
What I wish I could find around here is a really good crispy, thin-crust pizza. It's not always easy to find places to make pizza with nice, crisp crust. The fact that our Buddy's Pizza manages to make Detroit-style deep dish with a crust that isn't soggy beyond belief is what makes it our preference at home.
