You have to be from the east coast, specifically within 2-4 hours from New York City, to really understand Pizza.
I might disagree.  Chicago knows how to make pizza.  Chicago style with the sauce on top...nummers!  I used to eat Totinos all the time Nic.  Great drunk food.

I remember going to Uno's in downtown Chicago, quite a few years ago and before they became a chain. I fell in love with deep dish pizza.

Chicago style pizza isn't pizza.  Neither is a calzone.  I like both for what they are though. ;)

Chicago style pizza is a waaaaay distant second. It's good. But it's not really what I consider pizza. Too much dough.

Edit:schmidlin beat me to it.

That's like me saying Memphis style barbecue is not real barbecue. It's completely different from slow smoked brisket, which is my favorite, but it's still barbecue.

Nah, it's more like Alaskan Amber, which is not an amber but an alt.  It's a good beer by any name, but it's still not an amber.

Brisket is not real bbq. Has to be boston butt to be Que and it has to be New York style to be pizza. You just can't argue that. 'cause you'd be wrong.

I could argue your barbecue point all day long. Pork ribs are okay, but that's where it stops. That shredded crap with sauce poured all over it ain't "real" barbecue, IMO.  Real barbecue is brisket.

Now I'm hungry. :D

BBQ and pizza authenticity is a matter of opinion for the most part...and you know what they say about opinions.  ;D

Just where the hell is Bo from, anyway?  Here in NC we have two distinct styles, Eastern and Lexington, and none of it includes any cow.

You generally have to go west of the Red river to understand real BBQ. And it's beef brisket, chicken, pork ribs and sausage. I didn't even know about pulled pork until my thirties. Then there's Cabrito and Barbacoa to consider.

That's where you lose me. That's not BBQ. BBQ is pulled pork. Up north they used to call Sloppy Joe a Barbeque sandwich. Not quite as bad as "across the "Red river" I guess but close.
