          Not pizza. Deep dish is tomato sauce and cheese in a bread bowl.

              Why does herrine always in every goddamn video concede to alana. GIRL HAVE A BACKBONE. If you have an opinion stand by it. Alana never concedes even once. She's always expecting Herrine to do so.

                                You need to expand your horizons a bit. There's New York style pizza, Chicago style deep dish pizza, Detroit style pizza, whatever they have in California, Naples style pizza, and a bunch of others.

                              These pizza looks great...but too much sauce, too much cheese, i guess that a "normal" napoletan pizza is better and "healthier" :).

                                          nobody from chicago eats deep dish regularly. Also The Art of Pizza is the best deep/stuffed pizza in the city, dont bother with the chains....
