Papa John's founder, John Schnatter, held a fundraiser recently for Mitt Romney.  It was held at his Louisville estate.  Papa John began his pizza business here and the corporate headquarters are here.  Yum Brands, which includes KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and Long John Silver's is also headquartered here.  Louisville must be the place for food that is bad for you.  But, I digress.  I worked at the headquarters for a very short time.  The pay and benefits were awful.  A good business model.  Papa must be worried about the possibility of having to pay more in taxes.  I think Obama is only proposing a 3% increase for the very wealthy?   

This man (Romney) is so out of touch.  He is very taken with the estate, and says everyone should live like this.  He believes everyone is just a good idea away from living like this.  Or, buy up companies and shut them down like he did, while making off like bandits.  He recently told college students to go out and start businesses, and to borrow thousands of dollars from their parents, if need be.  His kids could have done that, but didn't need to.  It is hard for me to believe the election will be as close as many believe it will.  However, I won't be surprised.

I recently had a green tomato pizza with smoked mozzarella, speck and arugula. It was lovely.

ps: there was also a pizza with RAMPS, chilis and pecorino on the menu

What's your favorite pizza, Teddy?

I enjoy the "Meat-Me" (will await the sexual innuendo) at a small chain called Old Chicago.  I also loved the pizza from Mama Rosa's, which were in the Cincy area and also at King's Island theme park.  Of course, nothing beats NYC pizza, right?  They say the secret is the city water used for the dough.  However, when I'm feeling really trashy, I go for a frozen Totinos that can usually be bought for $1.

This is the Meat-Me:

Papa Johns pizza is a first class ticket to diarrheaville.

I'm going to be in DC next week for bidness.  Can anyone recommend a good pizza?  In the city, NW or Georgetown areas?

The entire city of Chicago would beg to differ.

Pizza is the last thing I think about when I think about DC. It's not like the northeast (though culturally it is in the present day) where generations ago large amounts of Italians settled.

That said, like any city you should be able to find something by googling "washington dc best pizza" :)

ps: I recommend trying to find a place with good Chesapeake Bay crabs which utilize the traditional Old Bay seasoning. This is more of a local gastronomic thingie.

Chicago deep dish style pizza is horrific... makes me gag.

I agree completely . When I moved to chicago one of the first things my friends there did was take me for chicago style pizza . I was polite but hated it .

I like pizza with very little tomato sauce on it and chicago style drips with sauce . I want veggies and cheese and meat on my pizza , abundant in that order .

I love Chicago-style pizza.  But sometimes I like 'heavy' foods. 

My daughter was just here recently and we went to an old Italian restaurant that makes deep dish.  I swear that pizza weighed about 15 lbs, but it was sooo good.  The trade off is I don't have to eat much to get full.  Plus I had no gastric issues, as some others claim.

Here in Filthy we have this place called Osteria which is rather upscale but routinely makes the top 25 lists for pizza in the US. I've only been twice but can attest to its sublime worthiness. They have this one pizza that has soft-cooked baked egg, bitto cheese, mozzarella, and cotechino sausage that everyone raves over. However it's $15-20 per pie so I only go if an out-of-town guest is putting it on an expense account :)

Good post Ted.

I hope we can all convince his supporters to see through this guy.  I think he should lose at least 35-65, to prove to the world and ourselves that Americans are not suckers and not idiots.  Wasn't 8 years of Bush witlessness enough?
