This Is the Best Pizza in America

https://www.yahoo.com/food/this-is-the-best-pizza-in-america-122282022916.html
 You pizza experts,read this article from Bon Appitit What do you think of his technique? 
     Davydd,I can comment on one idea:Gouda cheese makes a hell of a pie. Had it a lot on a trip to Holland.WOW!!!!!!! Also like the cream on the spinach or on arugula. I liked his comment about how great pizza is easy to find these days. Comments?

This article is already being "chewed & digested" here on an earlier thread.

LTB, I'm no pizza expert unless having a body by pizza makes me one, but I can say one thing about it with total conviction......
 
Reading  a thread title on this board that has the words, "best""pizza"  and "America"...Then beginning with "This is", even though it's a direct quote from the article title, is just like hearing someone say,
 
"Let's just knock this wasp nest out of the tree...", or
"I wonder what happens if we light this fuse" or
"I dunno...try pushing the red button."
If you need me, I'll be hiding under my desk with my hands over my head.......

When I was living in Amsterdam, we discovered that Gouda changed a LOT with age; young, it was like Mozzarella or Munster; medium, it was more like cheddar or American; aged it was like Parmesan.

there is no such thing as the best pizza in america, just like there is no such thing as the best pizza in the world. or the best hamburger in the world... or the best grilled cheese sandwich in the world......
 
pizza is a regional food. it began as an italian creation, but since then it has mutated into something that is different everywhere you go. even the supposedly official neopolitan standard pizza will be different everywhere you experience it. and that's what it really comes down to.... what you have experienced in your youth becomes the yardstick for comparision for the rest of your life if your mind is completely closed. this leads to violent arguments about new haven pizza vs new york pizza vs chicago pizza vs italian pizza......... personally, the worst pizza i ever had was in the village of amboise, france, supposedly mick jagger's favorite pizza place. not speaking french very well i ordered a pizza that was basically a classic margarita with 4 anchovy filets spaced every 90 degrees in a radial direction. it was baked in a wood-fired oven for about 2 minutes, looked really good but the crust was very gummy and hard to cut thru with a knife and fork pizza was served whole on a plate uncut. taste was ok but the texture was all wrong, no way could you pick up a slice and eat it by hand. but, that was the style that was popular in that region of france. it was also popular to serve the same type of pizza with a cracked raw egg in the center, something the waiter insisted that i order... but i declined... so my point is that threads like these, on a message board with such a tiny userbase who really doesn't travel very much and has a very limited view of what is actually on the planet, exist just to entertain those few who looove to trash anybody with an opposing opinion. my advice to anybody reading threads like this one, is to simply ignore the negative posts from narrow-minded users who are not willing to properly explain their negative views, the ones who deliver blanket statements like "new york pizza sucks" or "chicago pizza sucks" or "california pizza sucks"  without proving a proper explaination. eventually the traffic on this board, which is already very low.................. will cease to exist.

The pizza in Naples, Italy is wood-fired oven baked in two minutes or less and generally cannot be picked up and eaten as a slice. With the puffy cornicione of personal size pizzas all the juices tend to slide to the middle of the pie and make the middle wet. The Neapolitan style is to serve uncut with knife and fork. Nothing unusual there. My nearest Neapolitan style pizzeria in the Twin Cities with VPN certification is Punch and they serve it that way as well.
 
The raw egg? I suspect it cooks from the residual heat of the pizza. I added mine in this homemade breakfast pizza just a few seconds before taking it out of the oven.

A masterpiece Davydd. The egg in the center is common when I'm in Italy. Also hard boiled eggs. Had it a few times when the egg was sliced in wedges. arranged like daisy leaves with an olive slice in the center!!
