Thread: New York vs Chicago Pizza

  1. #1

    Default New York vs Chicago Pizza

    Watching the travel channel all day and right now they are going over the battle of New York vs Chicago style pizza. I am curious to see what you like better?

    I like New York style pizza better myself. Although we don't have pizza places in Indiana like they do in NY or Chicago.

    Definitely New York. It's so much easier to eat. Chicago Pizza is thick to the point where it's almost gross.

    I love going to New York and eating at different pizza joints there.

    Bloomington pizza - first Noble Romans, then Lennie's are both better than anything from NY or Chicago.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I prefer "regular" to either, but between the two, a good Chicago deep dish is better.

    New York. It's the style I grew up on. Chicago is good every now and then, but I could eat NY style pizza every day

    New York. It's early in this poll, but I thought for sure the deep dish would be far ahead of the thin stuff.

    I don't love either. Chicago style is OK maybe once or twice a year, but I always feel sick after one slice - too much cheese and too doughy. New Tork isn't my favorite either, too soft.

    I like my pizza very thin and very crispy crust, sauce that has a little spice to it. I gues it is more of an Italian pizza that I like.

    Sounds like St. Louis style.

    If you're in Indy, it's hard to go wrong with Union Jack's (in Broad Ripple) deep dish. You need to eat it with a fork and knife, but damn, that's some good stuff.

    I had Union Jack's for the first time in about 15 years - Man was I disappointed - not sure if my memories of the pizza were better than the reality, or if there are just a lot better pizza places around now. But it wasn't good at all. For Chicago Style I like Nancy's a lot more.

    What happened to Union Jacks - felt I was eating a huge dried out doughy tire. it was not good

    You must have just had bad luck. I've always thought it was some of the best pizza in Indy.

    From your description of what kind of pizza you like, I'd recommend either Pizzaology in Carmel, if you are close to the North Side, or Bazbeaux in both Broad Ripple and Carmel.

    Both of those places are high quality.

    They both are delicious.

    Puccini's has amazing pizza, and also would fit your preferences.

    But make sure you order a salad with your pizza. Their salads (and homemade ranch or blue cheese dressings) are worth going there by themselves.

    Puccini's is good, Some Guys is good. WB's is good, Monicals is pretty good, Cool River is good - I love that their sauce is a little spicy.

    How much pizza do you eat UB? I swear it seems like you must have it for every dinner at least.

    I'm actually from New York, but I've always loved a deep dish Chicago pizza.

    Probably once a week. I get Bazbeaux probably 75% of the time. I'll give up a lot of different foods, but pizza is never one of them. I often tell them to go a little light on the cheese and that makes it healthy and fewer calories and I like it just as well as I think most places put too much cheese on their pizzas anyway

    Every once in a while I crave a pizza king pizza, but you can't have all of that greese all of the time.

    I think the pizza you like is almost entirely a result of what you ate growing up. I like both Chicago and NY Style pizza - maybe leaning slightly towards NY because I prefer thin.

    However, I basically grew up eating the old style delivery pizza - Deb's, Villa, Jack's (not the same Jack's as at the Forum party, the old Jack's Northside). I'm talkin' pre-fab crusts, crumbly sausage, sliced instead of shredded cheese, cross-cut instead of pie cut (unless it's a small). (They deliver 'em cardboard boxes, but if I could find somebody that still puts it on the cardboard disc, then staples a giant paper bag around it, I'd be in heaven...'specially if it comes with a six pack o' Pepsi's.)

    In Fishers, it's Firehouse these days.

    Dude, go get Monical's Pizza.

    They still do pizza on cardboard disc and then stick it in a paper bag for some of their pizzas. You can't get a six pack of pepsi's, but you can get a two liter.

    Obviously growing up in central Indiana you get to know Pizza King or Arni's (same thing) which is not bad but honestly not that special either.

    I know it is pathetic but to this day Jack's pizza is one of my favorites to have. Don't ask me why I just love the sauce and overabundance of oregano.

    However thanks to my trip to California this summer (my first ever) I can now officially claim that the greatest pizza I have ever eaten in my life was in a little town called Truckee California. I would kill to have the Hawaiian pizza from there again. Shaved macadamia nuts and everything on there with slices, not bits, of pineapple.
