    Totally not reading 27 pages of this bullshit, but what kind of drama queen starts a thread about this shit? Turn off the computer/phone/tablet and go outside, man.
    I’m not even Team Max. Dude can be a real dick sometimes. :D

    You're really missing out. At least jump to page 4 or 5.

    I’d love to, but there are already so many heathens in this thread, and I see Drew weighed in, so there’s no point. You can’t salvage that kind of poor taste.

    I’ll say: Chicago - pizza, NY - cardboard with tomato paste. Anyone bringing up anything else is just kidding themselves, and probably think Tombstone Pizza is classy.

    I worked at a pizza place for a short while and had the great privilege of trying their attempts to make gluten-free pizzas. THAT's cardboard. It may be a really low bar, but anything above that is at least acceptable. It's just pizza, even bad pizza is better than some other food categories.

    For reals, it’s been a great community builder! Thanks @Manurack and @MaxOfMetal!

    EDIT: While I am being an ass here I’m also being sincere - this is the (long-winded) shit-shooting I miss from hanging out with people other than my wife and grandkids (whom I love dearly, but y’know).

    That’s what’s fun (and occasionally frustrating) about this place - at the end of the day every thread is just an open-ended conversation (titles and post-editing notwithstanding).

    In the spirit of the open-endedness of the topic, I'll take the extra opportunity to express just how frustrated I am with the windows store. What a mess.

    But anyway, something something pizza.

    I prefer to just say all computers suck.

    I feel like this post needs some clarification given the current context…

    I just realized that this has become the new "unpopular opinions" thread.

    I used to think that. Really, really wanted to believe it. Then, in my first apartment, way back in 93-94 somewhere in there, there was a pizza place right beneath it. So, being a pizza scarfing fool in my early twenties I ordered from them.

    Bad pizza is not always better than other food. It was so bad I threw it out. Didn't even bother waiting to see if it was better the next day for breakfast.

    I thought they must have fucked something up, so I gave them one more chance a couple months later. Big mistake. That shit was the most bland thing I've ever had in my mouth. Literally no flavor whatsoever. And this was their "all in" pizza that had everything but mushrooms on it. Even the pepperoni was blah. It was like eating a pizza textured rice cake. Fucking terrible. I'm still horrified by it today, and that's fast approaching thirty years ago.
    Can I get an AMEN!?

    Windows? Sucks.

    Mac OS? Blows.

    Linux? So fucking moody you'd swear it was a teenage girl.

    FreeBSD? I know it well enough to run it, but that's a learning curve that would make most college professors blush.

    OpenBSD? Think FreeBSD and amplify everything negative, then stick your nose in the air and twirl your moustach while declaring security every thirty seconds.

    I could go on, as I've been playing the computer game for a long, long time, but I'll stop there.

    I will say BeOS had some real potential before it fizzled on the vine. Had somebody with the big bucks taken that concept and streamlined it for usability, that would have been something. A real modern take on OS design from the filesystem and kernel on up. Granted, I'm sure they would have fucked it up too by the time they made it to the mainstream. I get to be nostalgic over it because it's like Firefly. One season so even the actors can remember it fondly instead of talking about what a shit-show the later seasons were.

    God damn it, what was I ranting about?

    Oh right, homemade deep crust pizza cooked in a well seasoned cast iron skillet is tough to beat. Only had one authentic Chicago pizza in my life and it made me so sick I thought I was gonna die. Never again. Besides, it's not really pizza in Chicago. It's a fucking casserole with a crust.

    homemade pizza is so easy that there's no point in ever buying an inferior product unless you want italian style and don't have a stone oven

    Publix here sells a whole wheat pizza dough that is absolutely incredible, and we'll make three or so "styles" of pizza (meat, margherita, white) and put them on the grill.

    I like homemade dough

    Here is the recipe I use:

    2.5 cups warm water
    1 tbsp sugar
    1 tsp active dry yeast
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 tbsp salt
    5 cups bread flour

    -combine yeast, water, sugar
    -add olive oil, salt, flour
    -knead until stretchable (can add more flour at this stage if it's too sticky)
    -rise on counter for 1-3 hours or in fridge for 1-7 days

    versatile, used it for everything from frying pan deep dish to stuffed crust to campfire bush pies (highly recommended)

    This thread is reminding me that it's been way too long since I made deep dish pizza in my cast iron.
