Ever since I discovered the fake cheese in my pizza, I decided to give up on it. I'm sure when pizza was just invented, it was great. But later on as it gone through mass production. The quality really decreased.
Do you like pizza? Why or why not?

I like pizza just because it's junk food - all that white bread crust and fat and salt. As such, I eat it a few times a year, and don't care too much about quality. No matter what went into it, it's still bad for me!
But for those who do care about quality, look at your local places. If you don't want mass-production pizza, maybe there's a bakery or restaurant in your town that makes pizza out of good ingredients. Give your business to them, not the chains.

As long as it doesn't have food dyes, I don't care how "fake" the cheese is. Frozen pizza is a staple for me, I stock on on whatever is on sale, cheese pizzas, and then cook them with spinach spread all over them.

I eat it a lot. It's one of my ten favorite foods. It was really good in New Jersey--so good I didn't know about putting "toppings" on it until I moved to PA, where pizza is usually pretty mediocre.

Seriously, I think chain pizza's pizzas are not as tasty as they once were.
The crust and tomato sauce both taste noticeably sweeter to me, no doubt from HFCS.
The toppings are skimpier and the crust seems oilier.

I haven't had chain restaurant pizza for years. We're lucky to have a couple really tasty delivery joints nearby so we're pretty spooled.

I like to go for a artisan type pizZA with organyic cheeses and pest aND tapinade I like real ground up anis sausage with seeds that you bit in to I really don;t like the balls of sausdagee, more the ground up texture I also don't like to much cheese, sometimes the Jarlsbourg low fat cheese is real good on pizza , but it is hard to find because itso high end, but damn that suff is good. I remember going to Dominics pizza in Wilmongon when i was a kin, I think it was on Avalon blvd, sort of in the "hood", but they msausauge made the best sausage pizza and i always ordered the salad to go along with it, it was romaine with tons and I do mean tons of grated Parmesan cheese. I loved it so much it's been years since Ive been back to the hood, but damn I yearn for it. ....for bbq there was LOVES, not sure if it was in wilmington or compton, but damn that shit was good.

Tonight a friend and I shared a Giordano's stuffed spinach pizza--fresh spinach and garlic, roma tomatoes,fresh mozzarella and parmesan, italian bread crust. What's not to like? Before you call us pigs, we had one slice each and froze the rest. This is a twice-a-year treat.
Rumor has it that it's an adaptation of a rustic sicilian pie, the scarciedda.

The only pizza that can or should be eaten with a knife and fork is deep-dish.
Anyone who eats regular pizza with a knife and fork needs to get punched in the face for being douche-bags.

Have you ever seen a stuffed pizza? Silverware is definitely needed. One slice is easily 500 calories and is ginormous.

Pizza actually has its roots in ancient Greece and Greeks were the people who founded Naples or Neapolis, "New City" and brought it there. I used to like all kinds of pizza, including anchovies (good with beer or wine), now that I am approaching my 60s I still like it but it doesn't always like me and I often get a bad case of indigestion when I eat pizza now. I try to think in terms of pizza being an expensive luxury food item that has alot of calories and I don't feel as unhappy about missing out on it.

I could live on pizza snd more or less did until I had to make dietary changes. Now when I do have it I am not going to settle for mediocre pizza. I also just order a slice instead of a whole pie and usualy eat it there, hot out of the oven.

Which pizza has fake cheese?
|by Anonymous||reply 38||12/20/2013|
I adore pizza. A place by me makes the greatest, with a thin whole wheat crust and a very lightly dressed arugula salad on top. When I was in France, they served it with prosciutto and wild mushrooms and a fried egg on top, one of the best pizzas I've ever had. It fills me up quick and I've never gorged on it so cold or reheated it is a great breakfast for the better part of a week. I don't consider it junk food in moderation. I don't like a thick crust or deep dish or stuff from Dominos, Papa Johns, Pizza Hut, etc.

Yes, I like pizza! Why? Because it's delicious.
I bake homemade pizza every Saturday my partner and I are home. I use a Julia Child dough and make changes depending on if I want a thin or thick crust, or chewy or crisp. Sauce varies - spicy or sweet or fresher ingredients. And of course cheese and other toppings change to keep things interesting. It's very satisfying and tasty, but it wouldn't be the same if I used pre-made crusts or sauce.
The only pizza delivery company I like at all is Imo's in St. Louis.

Northern New Jersey is pizza heaven. So many great small places, making the traditional pies. Have never eaten a frozen pie or one from a chain like Papa John's or Dominos. NJ is often run down as NYC's poor wannabe cousin. Something we do have is a proliferation of really good and reasonably priced italian restaurants, including our pizzerias.

When I was a kid you could smell delicious pizza from a pizza place 3 blocks away. Now when the slice is right in front of you it smells and tastes like nothing. Even at real pizza places it tastes like shit because the ingredients that were used back in the day (namely real food from animals raised right) doesn't exist.
BTW, back when pizza was so great it cost 15 cents a slice, circa early to mid 1960s. It probably tasted even better in the 40s an 50s.
