According to Homer (we’re talking Simpsons here, not he of Iliad fame), Chicago’s deep pie has the edge over New York’s thin and crispy.
The pizza aficionado nailed his colours to the mast in this contentious battle for US pizza supremacy when he responded to a viewer’s question during the first ever ‘real time’ episode of the Simpsons shown in May. East and West coast, Homer’s take on this dough fight sent the media spinning. I’m more of a thin and crispy fan myself.
People are rightly passionate about their pizza.
And we’re very passionate about our Co-op pizzas.
And being passionate about our pizzas means being passionate about the ingredients that we use and the recipes we dream up to combine them. Our pizza range has been transformed in recent years as we’ve sought to do the basics brilliantly and create a host of delectable gourmet pizzas at the top end.
So what’s next on the menu? Well, we’ve got a few ideas, but we’d like you to help us get the ball rolling. I’m really interested in hearing what you think about toppings – what are your favourites, is there anything that you never want to see on your pizza, what flavours rock your tomato sauce?
I’d also like to know, are you Team Homer with deep dish or Team Sara with thin and crispy?
