I totally agree. Once you start to mess with the basics of a good pizza then its not pizza anymore, it may or may not be good but its not pizza. I like mine thin and slightly crispy with a well rounded sauce and not a ton of cheese. Sorry Chicagoneans deep dish is a little to much....After a slice of deep dish, I need to hibernate for a few hours.Every place claims to have the best pizza. New York, New Haven, Chicago, etc. It's all good as far as I'm concerned. Though not California pizza. That's not good at all.
