In a segment that started off as pointing out how childish it is to compare the Willis Tower in Chicago to the new One World Trade Center building in New York, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart quickly turned into a pizza rant. Stewart, someone who has often used his on-air time to talk about pizza, felt the need to talk about the demeaning factors that Chicago-style pizza has brought to the name of pizza. In this rant, Stewart switches to a Jersey accent to talk about his hate for deep dish "pizza." For people always trying to decide which is better, listen to this epic rant on the side of New York slices.
"It's a f****** casserole," Stewart yells to the cameras during his rant. "It's a cornbread biscuit that you've melted cheese on and then, in defiance of god and all things holy, you've poured uncooked marinara sauce atop the cheese! .... This is not pizza. This is tomato soup in a breadbowl."
Whether you are on his side or not, Stewart definitely brings up some great points. The debate over the better style of pizza has been raging ever since the first deep dish popped up. It's one of the biggest arguments in America and Stewart probably opened up some floodgates here. Although it looks like Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel really opened the floodgates.
