wtf is up with chicago-style thin crust pizza getting zero respect? discuss.

seriously. after yet another ridiculous pizza-xenophobia thread on my home board, i apparently need to have this explained, one more time. there's more than one way to cook a chicken or make a dumpling. there's more than one flavor of ice cream. the absolute across the board dismissal of a food product by so many people is just weird.

resolution 1: the further away from nyc you are, the more what you are eating is not, in fact, pizza. it's a travesty. buy yourself a plane ticket and come to civilization.

resolution 2: chicago thin crust/midwestern square cut/cracker crust pizza, and its regional variants, is a legitimate pizza style. the possibility of other non nyc/nj pizza styles may also exist.

resolution 3: there's more to life than obsessing about snack foods like pizza and hot dogs, who the heck cares?

all coherent arguments in favor or against resolutions 1, 2, and/or 3 are most welcome.

debaters, begin.
