Steak pie - and all kinds of meat pies - have long been things.

On topic, my favorite pie is and always (probably) will be lemon meringue.

I should've guessed at that - Lemon Meringue would be one of the more "mad" pies

Lol, is it?

Yeah, the place I grew up with was run by Italian New Yorkers making NY Style pizza. A couple of them didn't speak English. I've had amazing pizza in NY as well. But wouldn't you know it - like for real ( I know about everything I say is a lie - but not this ), the best pizza of my life was in San Francisco - OMG - it was NY style run by an Italian ( so same stuff you get in NY, just made in SF ) and changed my life. I actually re-visted just to get more of that pizza. I got married with kids, so haven't been back in a long time, not sure it's still there.

So I guess pizza pie wins the contest as best pie ...

I once drove, with a couple friends, into rural Pennsylvania to pick someone up from college.  We stopped at a pizza place, went in, figured we'd just get one pizza, so we told the woman, "one pie, with pepperoni."

Well, after several minutes of the workers curiously staring at us, seemingly not understanding, and us, wondering if they spoke English or perhaps that somehow we were not, we arrived at the revelation that calling a pizza "a pie" is apparently not something done in that neck of the woods...the women thought we wanted an apple pie.

Ironically, the only decent pizza I have ever had was from a place called Brooklyn Pizza, in New Orleans.  Fitting, really.  Most places here though fail to understand the pizza isn't just about how much cheese and toppings you can possibly pile up...

What you call pizza is very different to what a made in Italy pizza is. I don't say better or worse, just different. ;)

Yeah, but that's half a world away, haha.

My favorite kind of pizza is one where there is more sauce than cheese though.  Fresh basil, maybe some pepperoni too.

 And here we come to the crux of pizza. Living in WV we getting meat lovers from Pizza Hut and stuffed crust pizza, gimmick pizza I grew up on. So, whilst drunk in NY and ordered my slice with pepperoni, my buddy stops me and says, "No, you don't want pepperoni, just cheese. Pepperoni ruins it." He was right, best pizza ever in my life. We do have a place in town now that is Italian cuisine and the make a passable NY style pie. Not the real deal though.

Yeah, of course. Tasty in any case.

But in Italy don't ask for pepperoni because they call it just salami and some mammas will pretend not to understand you. Peperone is just the pepper.

Yeah, if the pizza is real good, you don't need pepperoni.

But most places, like Pizza Hut, the "sauce" is essentially tomato paste with water and oregano stirred in.  A definite invitation for heart-burn, especially for me.  At least, in those cases, pepperoni makes it taste like something...

His eyes fell upon Esmenet, stricken upon the floor. My wife!
"Noooo," she wept and whispered. "Pleaaase, Akka..."

His face a mask of nimil, he turned without leave, began walking back the way he came. The Men of the Tusk stared at him dumbstruck

Any cool pies consumed over Thanksgiving? And for those of you not in USA, feel free to contribute as well if you've discovered anything interesting.

ThoughtsOfThelli ... maybe add a list of Earwa delicacies to your mission.

Pumpkin. Just a slice. With whipped cream (....ok, "Reddi-Whip").
