Chicago's Deep Dish? It Ain't Pizza!

We have an official ruling by a Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Chicago's deep dish pizza isn't really pizza. Justice Antonin Scalia says that while it is "very tasty," pizza it's not.

    Regardless of what it is, I have had it many times and it is very very tasty.  I stayed at Rosemont many times close to O'Hare and I always got a deep dish whatever.  It took about 45 minutes to prepare and it was worth it.  I could eat a small.

    Need I point out the obvious? 
    Mr. Justice Scalia is of Italian descent.

    What's with people describing Chicago deep-dish pizza as casserole? Have these people ever had casserole? They're not even remotely alike.

    I had one once. I don't really thing it's a good thing to call it a casserole. A casserole is a good thing.

    I've made deep dish pizza. It has more in common with casserole than Neapolitan pizza that's for sure. It bakes like a casserole.

    Every definition of pizza I could find defines pizza as a flat round dough topped with tomato sauce.......

    Even if I don't understand the "overarching theme" of this website I really love so much, my Italian love of real pizza won't allow me to categorize deep dish as regular pizza. I've had it, I "like" it, but by most definitions of pizza, this product isn't pizza. Scalia(Italian!!) is correct.I'm not maligning it or casseroles. I eat and like both(Ok,I love a good casserole). I'm just strongly agreeing with the topic here. It's just my opinion, an opinion based on 68 years of eating every type of pizza all over the world, but still an opinion. And I'll continue my research by eating as much of my favorite food as I can get my grubby hands on!!!

    Love Chicago deep dish pizza.  Have only had it a few times but it hokked me and I do think of it as pizza.  Maybe it's not the pizza with which I am most familiar (tomato pie), maybe it's not the pizza I grew up eating in Central NY (thick, party-cut squares) and maybe it's not the pizza that surrounds me now in NYC (Neopolitan), but to me, it's pizza nonetheless.

    It's true: New Yorkers eating up deep dish


    I have no idea who Emmett could possibly be talking about: "But I think it's pizza, and if a jerk from Connecticut wants to come in and say it's not pizza, look, I got more important things to worry about."

    I guess I'm just not much fun, although I love to read the comments. I guess I'm more of a glutton than a gourmet- if it tastes good.....gimme! Call it as you will. Whadahell!
