Pizza.
« on: June 03, 2013, 10:10:45 PM »
I love just ordering apizza. No putting in time on cooking, no dishes to clean, and I feel like a million bucks, when I only spent six.

14 inch pep, high quality pizza. When I'm bored I'll just sit there and watch the dude toss it. A meal fit for a king.

It's even named Pizza King! Hell yeah.

Now obviously I can't do this all the time, but it really does make me happy.

There's nothing quite as nice as a good pizza.  We are fortunate to have a place here that has great NY style pizza.  It's called "joy" in Italian.  A slice with cold seltzer when you are hungry is as fine a meal as you can get anywhere.  That will set you back $4.

Too bad it's not $6/pie up here.  More like $24.

I agree. And it works both ways because if you pay too little, you get crap, but if you pay too much, you get some ridiculous gourmet poo that misses the point of being a pizza.

Where I live, somewhere between $15-$20 gets a decent 16" pizza with a few toppings. Anything less than that you get garbage, anything more than that you get someone's creative interpretation of a pizza.

Yeah, I've had some poo "money" pizza. I tend to just get pep, since having salad on a pizza defeats the point of pizza.

When I was in London, one of the few places we could afford to eat was Pizza Express.  It was pretty good.  But New York pizza it was not.

Eh, New York pizza can be and is usually overrated. I like a soft crust over a crispy, and I like having toppings instead of the thin cheese of NY style.

And I don't care for Sicilian. I've yet to try detroit style, but it sounds interesting.

8ully, what is Detroit style?

And it's not clear what you mean by NY style pizza--it's basically Americanized Neapolitan pizza.  Good NY style pizza has thin crust but it's tender--both crisp and soft.  It's a yeasted dough that rises, gets spun by hand until smooth with slightly risen edges.  It's shoved into the oven on a long "spatula" with a wide blade.  Any pizzeria in the city offers a multitude of toppings if you want them, but for the purist, there's nothing like a good cheese slice, but the sauce has got to be good.  I'm happy with some dried red pepper flakes sprinkled over it.  In upper Manhattan, I go here:  http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/brooklyn/quest-find-best-pizza-man-secretly-harvests-slice-pizzeria-nyc-article-1.193316

Chicago style is deep dish, meaning thicker crust, baked in a pan, but still crispy on the exterior, but with much more sauce and cheese.  Sicilian pizza is like bread, sort of focaccia with a smattering of sauce.  I had it in Chicago with some Italian American friends.  I didn't much care for it, but I think it wasn't a good example.  There's tons of videos on youtube about pizza to die for.

One benefit to original sin:
Pizza.
Adam and Eve appear to have been vegetarians who lived on raw fruits and vegetables.

Did they eat? It's been quite a while since I read that book. It kinda goes off the rails.

Yeah, but they had to be tricked into it.

Just Eve was tricked.  Adam took it willfully when Eve offered it, thus it is Adam's sin, not Eve's.
