    shit does the olive garden even serve pizza?

    Yep.

    But that draw back to the initial question, "Who the fuck orders pizza at a nice Italian restaurant?"

    well I was gonna say that if even the olive garden doesn't serve pizza then

    but

    This past year at PAX I ordered a pizza during the fancy dinner from the Purple Cafe.

    Largely it was a financial decision because their pizzas are relatively cheap.

    You know what their pizzas are also? Terrible.

    I have managed to convince myself against pizza tonight, since we are getting "fancy italian food" on tuesday which might as well be pizza apparently

    You people don't have nice Italian restaurants that don't serve pizza? I don't even know how to respond to that.

    Jesus wept I need to proofread before I hit the reply button.

    What I attempted to say is that I find it strange that nice Italian places in the US do not serve pizza.

    No they do

    it is just that no one orders it because it is a nice Italian place why would you get pizza

    pizza is a common meal over here

  • OdinOdin Registered User regular
    Here in Italy, if you want to go out for pizza, you usually go to a Pizzeria

    Some restaurants also serve pizza, but as a general rule you can't walk in and expect them to have pizza on the menu

    pizza is served everywhere else

    The only time I've ever seen pizza in a nice Italian restaurant is on the kids menu.

    next to the grilled cheese and chicken fingers.

    Pizza is not nice Italian food.

  • alternatingAberrationalternatingAberration All Are Free Within The BiomassRegistered User regular
    There can be nice pizzas, the market is just inundated with fast-food pizza.

    Which, like fast-food tacos, fast-food ice-cream, and all fast-food products, can be pretty shitty.

    By fast-food pizza do you mean Pizza Hut/Domino's/Papa John's/etc.? Totally agree there. They are all terrible. Regular little pizzerias with great pizza are everywhere around here. I never understood why anyone would go to those chain restaurants for pizza.

    edit: look at me acting all high and mighty about pizza. let's be honest, I'd pretty much eat any pizza. bad pizza is still pizza.

    Sometimes you just have a craving for shit pizza. Ain't no reason to feel bad about that.

    Until you eat the whole thing in one sitting.

    Is that round (probably table) like thing a part of the pizza? It looks like it should be.

    it's a pizza stone

  • JayKaosJayKaos TWIN FIST SAW CLAWSRegistered User regular
    That's a pizza stone, you stick it in the oven and heat it up for a while before you stick the pizza in to simulate the brick-oven thing.

    I think it's good drunk pizza. So far the only pizza in Philly I've really liked is La Rosa's on Broad Street and one other one that I can't remember the name of. I feel like most Philly pizza has this spongy, cornbread-cracker crust that I just can't get over.

    But like I said, bad pizza is still pizza as far as I'm concerned.

    edit: I should note I've only had the pizza at the South St. Lorenzos. I've only ever had the sausage sandwiches at the Italian Market one.

    I like the Italian market one better, the south street one is obviously a tourist trap.

    My favroite pizza place will always be Village/California pizza in uni city... the latter had a chicken finger platter for 5.25 when I was in school. Four fingers, a box full of fries, garlic bread, slaw, side salad. A damn feast for pennies on the dollar.

    The best pizza I've ever had is from Pizzeria Stella in Old City

    It's a brick oven place. Their tartufo pizza with black truffles on it, and when they bring it to your table they crack an egg over it

    amazing

    damn that sounds really good. too bad I'm never in university city. I'll have to keep it in mind just in case I have to head over there, though.

    I think I've only had the tartufo pizza and margherita

    Because we're like "fuck yeah, tartufo" but it's a small pizza so we need more food but that pizza's so expensive so we get the cheap margherita

    Detroit pizza is okay I guess. I do not ever miss it, though.

    i dont know if i could define 'detroit style' pizza

    i guess the most popular pizza place in downtown is pizzapapalis? but they just serve chicago style and it is dry and shitty

    I guess you could call like, Cottage Inn, Detroit style? Or maybe Jet's or Tower Inn?

    jet's maybe

    i'm gonna go with buddy's since i somehow forgot buddys

    man that is some tasty pizza

    I have never eaten at Buddy's actually. I couldn't even tell you where it was.

    (if we're being totally honest the last time I was in Michigan was 2009 and I ate at Bell's in Ann Arbor because I was drunk and it was there.)
