Comments: An Insult Which Cannot Be Borne

Point taken. I do like a good thick-crusted pizza. But, friend Ben, if you need to adulterate your NY-style slice with pepper and oregano, dare I say you are eating at the wrong place? Not to mention there are several places to get perfectly delightful slices (my post mentions a few) without, ahem, a two-hour wait.

Incidentally, if you're ever unfortunate enough to find yourself in New Haven, Connecticut, make your stay a bit less dreary and head over to Pepe's for an exemplary thin-crust pie.

Oh, God. New Haven.

Even do I greatly enjoy NYC pizza (with the added advantage of its close location), still I must admit that Chicago pizza is better.

OK, OK, Ben. Point taken. I actually enjoy pizza of any kind—even Chicago's crust-heavy concoctions. I figured we'd get some guff for dissin' the Windy City–style, but wanted a punchy blog description. I've been meaning to change that "About Slice" copy. Maybe I'll get around to that over the rest of this long New Year's weekend. I'd like to try Gino's East. Next time I'm in Chicago I'll make it a priority. But I don't think it would ever supplant DiFara Pizza (http://slice.hatchback.net/archives/000103.html) as my favorite.
