    Huh.  I call that "how I ask the guy at the counter to cut the pieces for my kid when he was 3"

    Is this to encourage sharing?  I don't think I get it

    Doesn't change how it'll taste but seem like it might take a lot longer to eat and to get cheese all over.

    ^Good questions. Like Indifference, I also have eaten the majority of pizza in my life this way.  Thin crust and square cut. Most people hear Chicago pizza and think you need a spoon to eat it, but this type is much more common. Anyway, here’s the background story from Google...

    “This is often referred to as Tavern Cut, Chicago cut or party cut. It originated from Tavern owners who would put free pizza out in the bar. By doing so the guys who stopped by the tavern after work could have a shot and a beer before heading home to eat dinner with their families.”

    The pizza looks good but the cut is terrible. What the heck do you do with that “slice” in the bottom right hand corner?! It is like a half an inch across lol.

  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 3,859
    ^ Those corner pieces are just little snack bites lol. This cut was slightly on the smaller side, but pretty standard.

    That's when you can boast "I ate 12 slices of pizza and I'm not even full".

    It's cut differently!  The horror!!!
    Nah, but for the unfamiliar (at least, for me) it was funny to see. 
    I would eat that pizza and like it, from the looks of it, but I would always question "why?" as far as function goes with the cuts like that.

    Another benefit of square cut is that it gives the option to not over indulge. If I’m eating slices, I’m eating a minimum of 2; maybe 3. That’s a lot of pie. And I’m not going to throw a half eaten slice back in the box. With squares, I can snag a few pieces and walk away without feeling like I gained 50 pounds. Or snack on a couple leftover pieces. Give it a shot sometime!

    the opposite is also true....even if you’re stuffed, there’s always room for one or two or three more squares.

    I mean you eat ellio s so I m guessing You don’t need one.  Plus you are a cheap ass.

    I don't think I've ever tried Ellio's. For frozen, we used to do DiGiornio or Amy's or (later, kids) Wild Mike's -- oh, and of course, Stouffer's french bread pizza -- but these days we go for the Cape Cod Cafe bar pies, which you can easily grill.

    I, too, am a self admitted ellios eater.
    Something nostalgic and satisfying about a crappy cardboard rectangle every one in a long while.

    Pizza scissors will always make me chuckle.

    I love ellio s.  Sometimes real bad frozen pizza just hits the spot.  I used to put a slice of that in the toaster oven covered in parm and sometimes shredded cheddar.  Oh yes it was good.  
    Spirtual, that pizza looks good. Frozen or delivery?
