Round/Square Pizza?

This is a trick question. The answer is obviously square. If you don't eat the square then you BECOME a square.

There is only round pizza. It is the only shape that provides equal crust when cut into glorious wedges. Square 'pizzas' are abominations which must be destroyed. (Preferably by eating; waste not, want not, afterall.)

Round...even the new guy gets it. I'll give you a pass if you live in the middle of nowhere and only have Dominos or Pizza Hut to choose from, but no family run Italian restaurant would serve a square pie.

You all have clearly never enjoyed the gift to humanity that is the corner piece.

I like both. However round pizzas are easier to share.

I grew up within walking distance of an authentic New York Italian pizzeria, where very little English was spoken (or understood) by the staff.
And they made the best Round and Square pizza. The square was actually rectangular and called Sicilian style, with (un sacco di mozzerlla.)

I loved both (although partial to round due to its inevitable symmetry.)
The real question is New York or Chicago, and having had both, its NYC hands down (or pizza up.)

I don't know where, when, or by whom this Chicago/New York pizza debate was started, but they probably didn't live in either place. I'm Italian and my roots are from the Little Tuscany neighborhood of Chicago and it kinda drives me nuts.

Most people in Chicago do not eat "Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza". The pizza eaten most here is almost identical to "New York Style" pizza except cut differently. There might be slight thickness differences and varying cheese blends (and every Italian has their own "secret" sauce ingredient), but as I said, nearly identical. New York style is typically cut into pieces in the same manner as a pie, while Chicago style is usually cut into squares.

The places famous for "stuffed/deep dish" are typically corporate chains not even run by Italians and located in tourist trap areas. I wouldn't eat tacos from a Chinese restaurant and fried rice from a Mexican one. If I were to call any Italian pizza place in my area and order a "large cheese and pepperoni", when it arrives it would be a "New York Style" thin crust pizza. Now, you can order deep dish, stuffed, and pan pizza from those places, but the ratio of pizzas sold are overwhelmingly thin crust....just as I suspect they are in New York.

And yes, there are square "pizzas" sold in Italian bakeries here, but it is a slightly different animal with soft, almost bread like crust and sparse toppings usually served cold.

Aha! Hatter, I knew that a real Italian would not eat "Chicago Style."

Are you eating the pizza that was invented in NY in 1905 or the earlier, Neapolitan version from the home country?
(The NY Style has less tomato sauce and more cheese. My son calls the Neapolitan a "tomato pie" due to its copious use of fresh tomatoes.)
