So I’m sitting here feeling sorry for myself after just having eaten a 1300 calorie Domino’s pizza. My fat ass is gonna walk it off tomorrow, but now I’m laying here wondering one of life’s biggest questions: Is pizza a pie, a bread, or a... pizza? Traditionally a pizza is made of like a pie dough and rolled out into a flat, circular... uhh... circle... and then baked with various toppings. Some might then argue that it’s a type of bread, or a flatbread, as most pizza dough contains gluten and yeast. On the other hand, some pizzas are made ‘deep-pan’, and are effectively similar to pies. Some Americans even call these ‘pizza pies’. However, with that being said, most pie crusts have a significant difference to pizza crusts. Pies crusts generally have a ‘short’ texture, whilst pizza crusts are both crunchy and chewy. I mean you could even argue that pizzas are like a deconstructed pie. The pizza base is the pie dough, and the toppings are all usually what you’d use to fill the pie. So could you call it a pie, not based on the dough but on the toppings, or would it strictly be more like a bread because of the gluten that is developed to give it that chewy crunch? What even makes it a pizza? Why is it called a pizza? The meaning of life is hidden here somewhere, I know it!
