NYC v. CHICAGO:
The Final Verdict

In 2011, the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia weighed in:

I do indeed like so-called ‘deep dish pizza…. But it should not be called pizza. It should be called a tomato pie. Real pizza is Neapolitan. It is thin. It is chewy and crispy, OK?

Not to be outdone, a "Museum of Pizza" will open in NYC in October. It promises to be the "world's first and only immersive art experience celebrating pizza." Tickets are $35 & include a free slice.
