The middle pieces of thin crust pizza are, for lack of a better term, soggy on the top portion that the tomato sauce is applied to -- the crust is soaked with the sauce and a nice thin layer of corn meal that bakes to the bottom confirms the very flavor that is chicago thin crust  -- it is a nice soft, thin crust, with a corn meal finish which is very distinct.  To call it bad/not real pizza is a fundamental misunderstanding of how delicious Chicago thin crust is, and pretty ridiculous to boot.  Have you never had this type of pizza?

' people ' have been known to make ' pizza-ettes ' on English Muffins.  EM toasted. Jar Red sauce. any kind of cheese available right then

 

back in the toaster over or under the broiler in a regular oven, depending on  the need and urgency.

 

as far as I can tell, this 'pizza-ette' is currently legal only in CO and WA for various political reasons.

 

gfweb might know. (s)he seems to have spent time in CO eating as he claims the local 

 

Prairie oysters

 

who knew ?   :wacko:

 

F.D.: I personally know nothing of these 'pizza-ettes'  I know people back in the day that swore by them.

I believe that it was Chicago deep dish pizza that was determined to be not real pizza...not your thin crust version. 

 

(Unless the two are one in the same, which I don't think is the case.)

It has been years since I've had a prairie oyster, but never on a pizza.

 

In leaner times, when late night snacking was most urgent, I'd put a blob of spray cheese on a Herr's ripple chip and top it with a dab of sriracha. Habit forming.
