Hot take on regional pizza

Hot take on regional pizza

Hates_escalators

Pizza is love. Pizza is life. I just wish my stomach could handle basil, it always gets upset and that's unfortunative because I like basil.


SeefoodDisco

I'm the same with cheese


Slooooooooooooooooth

I’m genuinely, from the bottom of my heart, *so* sorry to hear that. I love basil and couldn’t imagine life without!!


Hates_escalators

Oh I still eat the pesto pizzas at work and then I regret it.


guitarhero666

Is it only basil you have problems with? If you're making the pizza yourself, try replacing it with oregano.


Hates_escalators

I'm a fan of oregano, I still eat basil. Rosemary bothers my stomach even more.


EatsCrackers

I feel your pain, I am violently allergic to basil. I have to be “that person” at all social functions and it’s such a drag. I get so much shade for being picky, but I’m like “No no! I actually love Italian! I would absolutely murder a good caprese if I could, but it would murder me right back, soooooo...” Ugh.


Hates_escalators

I don't have any allergies as far as I know. When I was a kid it seemed like I was allergic to shellfish but that seems to have gone away. Can that happen? Also when I was a kid I could never keep down hot dogs, every time I would eat them I'd throw up.


GNU_PTerry

That sucks, it goes so well with tomato. Unfortunately I can't handle raw tomato w/o getting a rash so I use store-made pizza sauce.


Hates_escalators

I still eat basil I just get really bad acid feeling.


notroberto23

Pesto is the besto.


Hates_escalators

I love pesto but my stomach does not.


luckylico

If its pizza, and if it's hot or if it's cold, I want to eat it.


Lionance

I actually kinda prefer colder pizza, cuz it’s stiffer and not as greasy


LooseUpstairs

Yes! And just nice as breakfast or lunch in the morning. The cheese has a distinct flavor even it's been baked and then cooled down again.


TheMelonBandit

Me, I like a nice, warm slice. Cold pizzas great, but given the choice, I like mine not cold.

I love this but it reminds me of a guy I knew from Italy. He was a big snob about pizza: he said that it's it's not margherita then it's not real pizza. He should have been happy that an Italian dish conquered the entire world but he chose to be a gatekeeping food snob Come to think of it, food snobs are some of the most annoying people in existence. Who cares if I put ketchup on a hot dog?


illy-chan

Food snobs are super annoying, especially when the hill they want to die on is "never change or innovate recipes *ever*." It especially bugs me with stuff like this - I wonder if your buddy knew tomatoes are a New World crop and his ancestors apparently found this plant from another continent worthy of adapting into so many of their dishes.


koh_kun

It's the same with sushi too. I'm Japanese and I still love American style sushi but there are plenty of people who think it's not real sushi.


GrayFox_13

Exactly, I get the distinction but I will destroy a California roll as fast as some Tuna nigiri.


SunsetBandit__

Yeah some Italians gatekeeps pizza. It's fair to categorize pizza like New York pizza etc, but pizza is pizza. Also it's bullshit that the only real pizza is margherita. Most of us eat it with lots of toppings and usually we order margherita only if we want to stay light on the stomach


FlyWereAble

Wait it's weird to put ketchup on hotdogs? Where I live basically everyone puts ketchup on hotdogs, it's a norm


EatsCrackers

I assume you’re talking about a Chicago style hot dog. People do get kinda techy if you add ketchup to that one, it’s seen as akin to pouring frozen orange juice into Dom Peringon. That one, you really can’t call it a Chicago dog if there’s ketchup. “Hey! Look at my Kitchen Sink Special, y’all!” should be fine. It isn’t, people will still try to fight you, but it *should* be, dangit! Let people enjoy things!


majora24

people die when they are killed bungee gum has both the propreties of rubber and gum


Beating-a-dead-whore

I have never understood literally anyone not from italy gatekeeping pizza. I mean, its not like pizza was first made in the Empire State Building.


ejotto

The “probably” makes the tweet


ActualBacchus

The idea that people from, like, anywhere that isn't in Italy think that they get to define "proper" pizza has always amused me.


QVJIPN-42

I like all pizza. I’m not american or italian, so I’m not one of the main players in this debate, but I like all pizza. Even dry pizza.


yinyin123

Ah, but you see, therein lies the deeper gatekeep; is it really pizza if it's outside of NY and NJ?


whynotbunberg

Yes. Unless it’s from St. Louis, in which case it’s a war crime.


zipadeedoodahdiggity

Fuck St. Louis and that abomination.


hrbumga

Finally, a pizza opinion everyone can agree with


bouffff

All pizza is good pizza


BananaGE1
