So we stole this idea from Jay Jerrier. A Neapolitan pizza guy himself, he wondered in a comment posted on our site this week whether the cracker crust was the city's favorite.

Pizza crust comes in many styles. For the purposes of this week's question, however, we'll assume that marginal versions--rustica, for instance, or (god forbid) stuffed crust--aren't in the running. We'll also assume (probably to the dismay of Grimaldi's) that New York style refers only to thin, floppy crust.

Which is it: Neapolitan, Chicago (as if), or the cracker crust (which we could attribute to several cities)?

Results from last week, in which we asked if drinking bottled water was, well, stupid:

Barring situations such as riding in the Tour de France or living on some organic farm where runoff spoils the well, the answer is--quite simply--yes...although we may make an exception for water spiked with the minimum daily requirement of vitamins, because we really don't like to eat vegetables.

And we can admit that now that Veggie Girl is gone.

Just a couple brief highlights here. "Mostly a waste of money (and plastic)," explains luniz. Indeed, the western world's landfills are starting to choke on water bottles according to some studies. "I prefer tap water," says TLS. "It has flavor."

Let's just assume TLS doesn't live on an organic farm.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
