Martina here. A pizza battle eh? Who wouldn’t want to take part in a pizza battle!!?? Woe is me for having to eat all this pizza. *swoons* Now first off, I want to begin by saying I am a huge pizza fan. I love pizza. I love all types of pizza. I am such a huge pizza fan that I generally like everything and anything on my pizza. I draw the line at sweet tasting Korean style pizza with strange amounts of sweet potato mousse and cream cheese. But I do like Hawaiian pizza. I mention this because I am very easily pleased by pizza. As long as you evenly cover my pizza pie with delicious toppings, I’m pretty happy. If you give me a pizza with sloppily applied cheese, gapping tomato sauce holes with no toppings covering, it I’ll be very disappointed in your lack of pizza skills.
That being said, I think there are many different types of pizza consumers in the world. Because of that, the battle between NYC style and Chicago style pizza will always rage on because they are just so different. I personally loved both because I love all types of pizza but not everyone is into thin crust and not everyone is into thick crust. Just a basic difference in your crust preference will be enough to set you on the path of being a picky pizza eaten. In order to find out what kind of pizza eater you are, and to discover what kind of pizza you might like, I’ve made a small pizza quiz for you to take.
What kind of crust do you prefer?
A) Crispy thin crust.
B) Puffy dough with an end crust I can dip in sauce.
C) I don’t have a preference.
D) The type of crust I like depends on the toppings on the pizza. What kind are we ordering?
E) I never eat my crust, so I don’t really care.
Do you enjoy white pizza? That’s pizza made with an olive oil base instead of tomato sauce.
C) I’ve never tried it.
D) I’ve never tried it and I never will. Sounds gross.
E) Depends on my mood.
I’ve made pizza at home before.
A) Yes, it was great!
B) No, I’ve never tried but I want to.
C) No, that’s way too much work.
D) Yes, it turned out awful and soggy.
E) I added extra toppings to frozen pizza…does that count?
I’ve tried Margherita pizza and enjoyed it.
A) Yes, simple and yummy.
B) Yes, but it was boring.
C) No, I’ve never had the chance but I want to.
D) Isn’t that a drink?
Where do you eat pizza the most?
A) At a restaurant.
B) By the slice at a pizza shop.
C) Mostly at parties.
D) In my home via delivery.
E) In my home via my microwave.
How many kinds of toppings do you like on your pizza?
A) Two to three otherwise the crust can get soggy.
B) Two to three otherwise it can be too overwhelming.
C) I don’t care about the amount of toppings, as long as it tastes good.
D) Let’s not get crazy. Olives, pineapple, and cilantro do not belong on pizza. Gimme a basic pizza anyway.
E) Load it on up! I want to be full after eating my pizza. None of this wimpy thin crust for me.
People best describe you as:
A) outgoing and talkative
B) a thoughtful introvert
C) a lone wolf who prefers one or two friends
D) a group person that enjoys being around many people at once
E) Loki with a hint of Malfoy
Time to add up your score…
I have no idea how to calculate…
but congrats on liking pizza!
You’re one of the following pizza personalities!
You might be: The Ultimate Pizza Lover
I like all types of pizza. Thin or thick, frozen or deep dish. I’ll make it at home, eat it by the slice, or order a gourmet pizza at a restaurant. My priorities are on the quality of the toppings and the accuracy in which they are applied to my dough. I don’t want blotchy tomato sauce sections that are left bare, I want an evenly covered pizza. Olive oil base or tomato, I don’t care as long as the end product is yummy!
You might be: a Thin Crust Brick Oven Gourmet Kind of Pizza Person
If my pizza crust isn’t crispy, I don’t want it. That’s why I prefer pizza cooked in a brick oven. If I had my own brick oven I’d make it myself at home. And what’s up with that nonsense dipping sauce for the useless crust? Toppings should make their way to the very edge of my pizza dough. And I want to see options like artichoke, spinach, and Italian meats that I can’t pronounce.
You might be: a Thick Crust Gourmet Pizza Person
I enjoy an olive oil pizza with spinach and feta as much as the next gourmet pizza lover but what’s up with that useless thin crust pizza? How can I load on 5 different toppings with wimpy thin crust pizza? Give me an assortment of awesome toppings and a pizza dough that can support it. If push comes to shove I’ll eat thin crust pizza, but I’ll feel hungry afterwards.
You might be: Deep Dish Chicago Pizza Person
I want a pizza with so much cheese and so many toppings on it that I’ll never poop again. I want to use a fork and knife to get through my pizza, in fact, I want to eat pizza like it is a casserole. I don’t care much for crust or dipping sauce, I want to get my money’s worth with a pizza so loaded up with toppings I can eat two slices and feel full. Aww yeah.
The Basic Pizza Party Person
Let’s not get crazy with weird toppings. Artichoke? That doesn’t belong on a pizza. I like cheese, pepperoni, and maybe another typical pizza topping on my pie. If it’s the kind of pizza you order it for a kids birthday party, I’ll probably like it. Pizza is alright but it’s not my favourite thing ever.
The Frozen is Fine Pizza Person
I like pizza…but I don’t looooove pizza. I’m not dishing out the cash for those over priced delivery pizzas plus a tip and restaurant pizzas made in dumb brick ovens are way to pricey. I can buy a much cheaper frozen pizza from the grocery store. Heck,I might even add some of my own toppings to the pizza and make it all fancy. Also, if I don’t have an oven I am totally willing to microwave it. Also, a pizza pocket counts as pizza, right?
If you’re interested in visiting the locations we went to and decided for yourself, we went to Toby’s Public House on 686 6th Avenue (at 21ST St) Brooklyn, NY, 11215, and Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria on 1120 N. State Street, Chicago, IL, 60610. More importantly, I’m sure some of you are going to say “why did you go there! That’s not the best place! This is the best place!” In fact, when I was speaking with a Nasty I met in the streets of New York and I was telling her about the video we were about to shoot, a dude I didn’t know walked up and was like “hey if you want the best pizza go here!” I didn’t even know the guy! But everyone’s very passionate about their choices. We came to these two after a lot of research from online opinions, and though they may be contentious choices, they’re still pretty good representations of pizza, right?
