    It's hot here in Arizona and the summer rains have been a bust. I think the whole place is going to combust pretty soon. It won't be pretty.

    Last night, I got a thin crust pizza from a local joint, which is usually great. It was gloppy and floppy.

    A thin crust pizza is my favorite, but to hear a story such as this, of the ruination of a delightful taste treat, is very sad, sad indeed.

    False. Thin crust pizza has 3 forms: Cardboard, charcoal, or gloppy & floppy.

    On the other hand, thick crust like Pizza Hut used to make was biscuity.

    There's usually a happy medium: Give me just a regular plain ol' pizza, for Pizz sake! Some call it hand tossed, some call it pan pizza (although that's technically a misnomer). But, a proper balance can be achieved! The artform known as pizza requires balance; a proper crust/topping balance, if you will. The reason that a Chicago-style pizza works is because it maintains that balance...a fat load of toppings on a fat load of crust. Wafer thin crust throws aside the proper topping:crust ratio.

    I know, I know, I just haven't had the *right* thin crust pizza yet, and the only place to get the *right* thin crust pizza is somewhere in your hometown, and not mine.

    I also know that my argument is invalid because I said that Chicago-style deep dish is proper pizza.

    Well you, sir, can go stick a pepperoni right in the middle of your thin crust.

    I bid you adieu.

    (kidding, of course...you're a pretty cool guy, and I'm just being persnickety for the sake of carrying this thread on)

    Thin crust does not rinse over night in a bleach content over 34% cloride.

    I'm staining my deck, might have some thin crust pizza on the deck after it's done and dried well. I think pizza dropping might stain the fresh stain though, so will have to be careful......

    5th grade... substitute teacher... for a math class. She came in with a bowl of candy, introduced herself, and said she really didn’t know anything about math. Then she wrote the verb forms on the board and said. “I’m going to teach you this instead, and I promise once you learn it, you’ll remember it for the rest of your life.” We practiced it (to Jingle Bells) and then one by one we sang it for her and got a piece of candy as our reward. She was right so far... I haven’t forgotten it.

    This entire post reminds me of Shchedryk.

    Somebody said "Pizza Hut" in this thread.

    I'm not naming names.

    But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little PO'd off.

    Pizza Hut?

    Gah. Just gah.

    The worst pizza I've ever had was in my high school cafeteria. Second worst pizza I've ever had was in my college cafeteria.

    The best? When I went to Italy.

    I chose my words carefully, so as to include a pizza joint that most/all of us have eaten.

    Besides, have you eaten a P'zone?

    The company I currently work for is owned by Italians. They (well, 3 of the guys anyway) claim that this little joint has the best Italian-style pizza in the United States. It is thin crust, but maintains a lighter crust:topping ratio, so it's cool. And, they're one of the few pizza joints I've been to that actually specializes in and emphasizes anchovies on their pizza.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    I looked at the pictures in that link. They seem little heavy on the toppings. Look tasty though. The pizze in Italia look like this.

    If my Roma tomatoes can shake the blossom-end rot, I hope to make a badass Margherita pizza with 'maters and basil out of my garden.
