That's been ticking me off for a while, that they show triangles in their promo shots. The restaurants do the appropriate party cut. I figured the triangle pix are for all those heathens out there who butcher their pies thusly.
That's what I figured too, at least for the frozen HRI that I was buying at the grocery store. Seems to me they didn't want to "offend" the non-midwestern pizza consuming public! Interestingly, the thin crust Delissio pizzas do use a square party cut on their boxes.
Yep...damn hop-heads. All jacked up on who knows what out there just buying up anything they can get their hands on with no respect for Traditions....sheeesh!!
But it's not just about tradition, the way you cut the pizza really does affect the way it "eats" and tastes! There's something about those greasy, soggy, cheesy middle pieces that you just can't achieve with a standard triangle cut. As well, you don't get the crispy corners with the triangle cut, either!
Can you imagine if someone in the NYC thread made a NYC pizza, but cut it into squares? That most certainly would NOT go over there. It would absolutely ruin the NYC eating experience! I don't see why there is a double standard for midwest/chicago pizzas.
