5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.
Since we just hit you with a pretty gut-punching interview with Chef Suvir Saran on the subject of HIV/AIDS activism and the disease's impact on the food world, we decided to lighten things up a bit this afternoon with a good old-fashioned food fight courtesy of the original shock jock, Steve Dahl.
Besides being a popular radio personality, Dahl considers himself somewhat of a pizza aficionado - and now, he's throwing down the gauntlet declaring deep-dish Chicago-style pizza the best in all the land. What say you New York?
Five Reasons Chicago Pizza is the Best: Steve Dahl
2. "The best part about Chicago pizza leftovers are that they reheat splendidly in the microwave, due to their thickness and consistency and you don’t have to do any work besides eat it again!"
3. "Chicago pizza can be used as a spare tire in a roadside emergency."
4. "It keeps us all fat and warm for when the Hawks blows off of Lake Michigan."
5. "Its origins are suspect, just like many of our politicians."
