Cheezewit, what hath thou wrought? Thu, 10/30/03 11:07 PM (permalink)
All of the sudden, seems like every other pizza chain in the Greater Cincinnati area is not only offering, but actively promoting, a 'Philly Cheesesteak' pizza.

All these pizzas really are is a standard pie with onion, green pepper and mushroom -- with the odd addition of thinly sliced 'steak'. So all they've really done is introduced a new topping, and to my mind not a particularly good one (with pizza).

So fess up, CW. I know you're behind this.

    TJ...I wish I could take the kudos or blame for this. Just about every pizza shop here in the Philadelphia area has offered a steak pizza or a chicken steak pizza for at least a year or two.

    Domino's jumped on that (with prodding from The Beef Council as I heard it)and has a Philly cheesesteak pizza available for a limited time.

    I like the pies from my local shops and wouldn't order it out of the area from a national chain.

    Thank you for thinking of me. Next time you're coming to Philly let me know and we can hit some of the great Philly eateries. But remember to bring a few Four-way chilis for me!

        This one doesn't deserve to survive. The post is gone. To those who replied to the one post. I removed yours to clean the whole conversation off the thread. Nothing personal.

        OK The topic is fake-cheesteak pizza...and the money Cheezewit is making from Domino's right?? Enuf with the flames already.

          I saw a commercial last night for a fajita pizza. That just sounds wrong.

            We too have the Domino's promotion going on, just doesn't sound too appetizing, BUT we do have a "Gainesville" only chain(I believe)called Five Star that makes a good chicken ranch "white pie", don't know that I'd call it a pizza, pizza to me has a red sauce, IMO anyway.

              I am not much of a pizza fan, but I must admit, the local BBQ Pizza and Mexican Pizza both sound like a bit more of Multi-Culturalism than my tastes can handle.
              Once Many years back I did share a Russian pie made with thin slices of Smoked Salmon. It was "interesting" and I would not reorder it either !!

                Thanks, Mr. Mayor for removing that post.
                Hey, I never ATE a cheesesteak pizza but would I try it? Sure! Just as long as there's no pineapple on it!!!

                  OK, I'll admit that the proliferation of cheesesteak pizzas is irritating, but feast your eyes on this festival of "creativity":

                  Yes, that's the extensive menu from San Jose's Pizza Lover. About halfway down you'll find "The Viking", a delightful combination of salmon, sour cream, red onions & basil. Enjoy! (and thank your lucky stars you're not ordering pizza in California)
