Any thoughts on the new Cup-O-Pizza guy?
Avatar 1:39pm Reeshard:

For reasons I still don't understand, my dad was a big fan of little actors, with Billy Barty and Michael Dunn ('Ship Of Fools,' 'Wild, Wild West') being his favorites. Mr. Barty seemed like the sunnier counterpart to Mr. Dunn's often evil characterizations.

@fleep that recipe is fool proof! I took a dump just reading it.

in other pizza news...anyone who hasn't seen John Stewarts passionate defenses of NY pizza traditions should look them up

i used to like the tree tavern pizza from key food cuz they spent zero dollars on the box. frozen, i know.....
  1:49pm JakeGould:

The hardest thing to deal with when making pizza is the dough. If the rest of it confuses you, excuse my French, but you might just be an idiot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm mariano:

There was the Simpsons episode when Skinner announced to the school that "in the spirit of political correctness run amok, pizza day will now be called Italian-American sauce bread day."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm dale:

my mother used to mike up a batter of bisquik for pizza. we were little kids and no such thing as a real pizza place existed in the sticks where i grew up. sometimes i'd take a piece of bread add ketchup, velveeta and strips of baloney and stick that in a pan.

Dale, we all have our food stories.
  1:56pm JakeGould:

I grew up in a working class neighborhood that was a bit like the Lower East Side by the sea. Thrilling! The amount of oddball food combos I had in my life… Like all of them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm dale:

maybe we can get a chop suey set next week?
  2:02pm JakeGould:

Chop suey is nasty.
  2:02pm Joe R.:

To answer Rex's question, Milwaukee pizza tends to be really thin crust, almost cracker like. Bit of a contrast to Chicago's deep dish style.

And our civic fathers at least had the good sense to commemorate the birth of pizza in Milwaukee with a historical marker....

  2:05pm Wisconsin:

#Joe R. I still miss the original Pizza Man.
Avatar 2:08pm Reeshard:

You could probably divide the U.S. into Roman city-states based on pizza preference alone. Being from Detroit, a place where seemingly only Greeks were trusted with pizza manufacture, it took some time after I moved to NYC to come to terms with East Village slices. Listening to the Ramones didn't help that much.
  2:11pm Joe R.:

#Wisconsin not a fan of the reborn version on Downer? Just there for the first time last night.
  2:13pm sawsee:

sounds like Rex is ready to start a commune !
  2:14pm Wisconsin:

#Joe R. The original can never be duplicated. I carved a few things in the woodwork at the original.
  2:17pm Wisconsin:

#Joe R I haven't been to the new one yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:25pm dale:

chop suey is awesome. make some rice. open the sauce can and dump it out on top. open the fried noodles and dump those on top. done!
  2:26pm JakeGould:

Dale, chop suey is nasty. We can’t ever split meals for any reason. Would appreciate your company, but need to draw a line.

i remember whenever the honeymooners had something to celebrate they'd go out for chop suey or go to the deli for cold cuts. keep the bar low i say.
