Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia struck down Chicago-style deep dish, ruling that the overflowing mess of sauce and cheese cant be considered pizza.
The conservative stalwart, speaking at the Union League Club of Chicagos 126th annual George Washingtons Birthday celebration, said he enjoys Second City pie.
But in his supreme opinion, it shouldnt be called pizza.
The bizarre deep-dish offering calls for vats of tomato sauce to be poured over cheese, before its then baked into a boiling monstrosity.

Suck it up, Chicago!
Lasagna without the pasta.
It’s why Chicagoans call it a “pie,” Justice Scalia. Nonetheless, I trust your judgment.
I used to not like Pizza Hut and had not eaten any pizza for many years until my Niece and her family stopped by maybe a year ago.
They had stopped at Pizza Hut and gotten a couple. I was surprised how good they were so I decided to try them again. I didn’t know what to order but the little girl at the register helped me figure it out.
It was a deep dish meat lovers pizza. Sure enough it was good and also reheated for several days.
Anchivies, Black Olives, Green Peppers and onions.
there IS no other pizza
Speaking as a Chicago native, I never heard if Chicago-style deep dish pizza until I left Chicago. So go figure, actually thin crust is more Chicago style as far as I can tell. New York pizza sucks IMHO.
I make some of the best pizza around.
In fact my sons ex-MIL told me she couldn’t wait for her grandkids birthdays just so could come out and eat some of the pizza I make for the parties....
I love anchovies on a pie, but I guess I am more of a fan of them being a lone topping. I have had anchovies and onions which was OK, but never anything else. One of the perfect pairings of food is an anchovy pie and a cold one, in my opinion.
You mean to tell me that this lo-carb California free range chicken teriyaki and cashew-pineapple pizza that I’ve been eating for all my life isn’t real pizza?
Its a casserole, not a pizza.
I’ve had both styles before, each in their native city. Both are good in their places. However! The New York pizza for some reason tasted better in all ways, I think it’s because it was eaten on the street at the bistro tables and usually because I was hungry and in a hurry to be somewhere else.
The Chicago style was better for sitting in a restaurant with friends and spending time enjoying the ‘pie’ and good company.
Now with that out of the way, the ABSOLUTELY best pizza I have ever had was at a place called ‘Pizza Villa’ in Delaware Ohio. It’s hard to explain why, it just was.
The most ‘Fun’ Pizza I ever had was at Pizza and Pipes in Everett Washington. It was a pizza palace inside of a Wurlitzer Pipe Organ. Long Trestle tables, and wonderful live music and old time silent movies accompanied by the organ. Ahhh, good memories indeed.
Ike Sewell invented the deep dish "Chicago" pizza in 1943 at the corner of Ohio Street and Wabash Avenue in Chicago. I like it myself, but I hear you when you say it's not authentic Chicago pizza. Thin crust is good too.
Now as for New York pizza, to each his own. ;-)
Same here. Now, if you want a treat once in a while you have to go to Geno's East for a deep dish pie. Unbelievable.
I always wondered why they have anchovies on the menu. I have never seen anybody order them.
anyone near sacramento
Used to be a great little pizza shop near me that served Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. It had a thick layer of provolone cheese covered with sauce. 1 slice was a meal - I loved it! Then the shop closed down.
It’s an acquired taste.
My daughter worked a short while at a Dominos.
She said they used to argue over who had to be the one to deal with them
