The square cut vs. pie cut pizza slice post from last month raised a ruckus. Regular slices took down squares by a 2:1 margin, and the ability to hold the slice without getting fingers cheesy or saucy appear to be contributing factors.
But then Mike N. jumped into the comments with this nugget after abstaining from voting on this important issue:
Actually, I think the type of cut in a pizza is one of many variables. The cheese to sauce to topping ratio, flavor of the sauce, speed of delivery, size of each topping (i.e. Parkwayâ€™s tomato slices are discsâ€“not diced), and crust flavor are all more important.
Debating slice shape is like debating which President would make the best fishing buddy.
Point taken, Mike N. So, let’s see if we can determine which ingredient that goes into making a pizza has the largest impact on your perceived outcome. Is it a perfect crust? A delicious sauce? Just the right amount of cheese? Or does it really come down to what’s on top?
Take your time with this one. There is a lot to thing about here.
