Poll: Cold Pizza - Way or No Way!?

Slice Meredith Smith 44 comments

When it comes to reheating slices we know all the tricks. But who says a slice of leftover pizza needs a lot of special treatment? Are you down with the cold slice? More

Poll: Cornmeal on Pizza Crust, Way or No Way?

Slice Meredith Smith 34 comments

Cornmeal makes its way onto the bottom of a number of pies. There are a number of styles where cornmeal is essential, but adherents to the Neapolitan tradition would would frown on using anything other than flour. Where do you stand when it comes to cornmeal on your slice? More

Poll: Pickled Peppers, Way or No Way?

Slice Meredith Smith 24 comments

Pickled peppers on pizza can be a revelation for the pepper loving pie eater. I only started working them into my rotation fairly recently (within the last two years), and let me tell you, the vinegar-y heat of a pickled hot cherry pepper when paired with a nice Italian sausage is pretty unbeatable. But I can remember a time when, in my mind, pickled peppers had no place on a pizza. They were better relegated to their cardboard cutout corner in Papa John's pizza boxes. So what do you say, way or no way? More

Poll: Eggplant on Pizza, Way or No Way?

Slice Meredith Smith 42 comments

Eggplants are controversial, perhaps nowhere more so than when sitting atop a slice of pie. Lovers of the eggplant find the velvety texture irresistible, especially when it comes with a crunchy coating. But those that loathe the aubergine can name no greater culinary transgression than a pizza tainted by the mushy nightshade. More

Poll: Ranch Dressing on Pizza - Way or No Way?

Slice Meredith Smith 70 comments

It started off innocently enough, a little dressing drenched leaf of lettuce making its way onto a slice on a shared plate. Then hey, why not dip the crust in it?. Before you know it ranch dressing topped pies started elbowing their way into specialty slice shops. But now ranch has gained such a strong foothold in the topping department that it's made its way onto the chain menus*, usually serving as an accompaniment to chicken. It has taken whole areas of the country by storm (I'm looking at you Texas ... and Michigan). So, Slice people, what's your position on ranch dressing edging its way into the topping/saucing class? More

Poll: Tomatoes as a Topping - Way or No Way?

Slice Meredith Smith 31 comments

An Italian friend of mine scoffed at the notion of using tomatoes as a pizza topping (unless they are cherry tomatoes and added at the end, in the manner of basil and arugula). Maybe it's a Venetian bias, or the addition of tomatoes as a cooked topping is truly a foreign abomination, but either way it seems controversial. So where do you stand on tomatoes as a topping? More

Poll: Truffle Oil on Pizza - Way or No Way?

Slice Meredith Smith 8 comments

[Photograph: Robyn Lee] In an epic Serious Eats rant this spring, Kenji took truffle oil to task and named pizza as one of the greatest remaining victims of the stuff. What say you: Does truffle oil increase or decrease pizza's appeal? Truffle oil: way or no way?online surveys... More

Poll: Panettone, Way or No Way?

New York The Serious Eats Team 58 comments

At Serious Eats: New York, we've been on a hunt for good panettone, and have found a few we like: a tender fruitless version from Eataly and a plump raisin-studded number from Sullivan Street Bakery. But we know from past panettone coverage that the soft sweet loaf is a terribly polarizing foodstuff. Tell us: do you like panettone? » More

Poll: Eggs on Pizza - Way or No Way?

Slice Adam Kuban 49 comments

After watching Nate Appleman make "breakfast pizzas" for last week's Pieman's Craft video snippet, we all got to talking here at SE/Slice HQ. How many people are into eggs on their pizza? I won't reveal what the breakdown was here in the office until later — after all you have had your say. So what say you? Eggs on pizza: Way or no way? » More

Poll: Kids In High-End Restaurants: Way or No Way?

New York Carey Jones 73 comments

This weekend in the New York Times, Shivani Vora wrote about taking her child out to eat, having discovered that many high-end restaurants go out of their way to cater to the highchair set. But it's one thing to wheel the stroller into a pizza parlor; it's another to expect youngsters to behave properly at a formal restaurant. What do you think? Should parents bring their kids to fine-dining restaurants? More

'Slice' Poll: Pineapple Pizza - Way or No Way?

Slice Adam Kuban 127 comments

I think that when we started doing "Way or No Way" polls on Slice, you, dear reader, knew somewhere in the back of your mind that this day would come. Yes, this week's poll takes on perhaps one of the most controversial topics in all of pizzadom Pineapple on a pizza — way or no way? » More

'Slice' Poll: Dessert Pizza - Way or No Way?

Slice Adam Kuban 60 comments

You've already done the main show — either pizza or some other entrée — and now the restaurant you're eating at offers dessert pizza. It might be a bready crust topped with chocolate sauce and bananas, peanut butter, or marshmallows (à la Max Brenner). It might be in the form of a calzone (like at Toby's Public House in Brooklyn) or maybe it's a fruit pizza. Whatever configuration you've seen it in, it's now in the form of a poll here on Slice: Dessert pizza — way or no way? » More

'Slice' Poll: Chicken Pizza - Way or No Way?

Slice Adam Kuban 55 comments

Time was when I was more of a pizza purist that I'd dismiss chicken on a pizza out of hand. But when even the certifiably old-school Bronx joint Louie & Ernie's has had to offer chicken topping as tastes change, well, that made me reassess things. Add to that the fact that Ed Levine (Mr. "Slice of Heaven" himself) recently mentioned that his son has turned him on to chicken pizza, and that seals it for this week's Slice poll: Chicken pizza — way or no way? More

Grocery Self-Checkout Lanes: Way or No Way?

Adam Kuban 91 comments

I believe that the issue of those automated self-checkout lanes has come up before on Serious Eats, but often as asides in larger discussions, but I figured this one might be ripe for the pseudo-science that is the Serious Eats Poll. More
