DailyDirt: Tips For Optimal Pizza Eating

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There are a lot of different kinds of pizza, and it's a food that is often mentioned here on Techdirt -- often as the example of how giving away free samples can drive greater business. But if you just like to eat pizza, and don't care about any other aspects of the pizza business (or any other business), here are just a few tips for you. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Polite and eager for work:

    Lived on both coasts and in the middle. Moved interstate 18 times, though there were a few repeats. About 40 or so years of that was in the Hospitality business with a strong side on food service and the kitchen. I observed folks, sometimes regionally (though today I would not wish to risk a senior moment with regard to where those were) using utensils on pizza and struggled to maintain a sense of decorum when witnessed.

    I feel confident that those locations were not on either coast, but were in the middle, someplace(s). Interestingly, I found some other things common in those middle places, not prominent on either coast. The first thing I noticed is manners. Even in cities, manners were more prominent in the middle than on the coasts. The second thing noticed was a work ethic. Folks in the middle understood work. Had some trouble with that issue on both coasts.

    The utensils on pizza thing probably comes from the manners bit, taken a bit far, though one could argue that the work ethic works in too, as it is a lot harder to eat a pizza with even the Bestest(TM) utensils, than by hand. And Yes! Folding is the way to go. One of my requirements for a good pizza is that when I pick up the slice and fold it, it should not sag at the other end (regardless of pizza circumference and/or topping selection). This is possible with many different kinds of dough, but it (the dough) must be treated properly, both before and during the baking process to achieve such a result.

    On the other hand, Chicago style deep dish is an argument for experimentation gone too far! ;)
