    If this is true I feel sorry for the troll's son who was obviously robbed of victory.

    Bad pizza?

    I agree. More needs to be done to eliminate bad pizza. I implore all of you to stop accepting it as just "part of life". It doesn't need to be. Please, join me in stopping this outrage. Think of the children.

    If only we had regional pizza making groups who could train people to make pizzas before they got to me, pizzas would be so much better.

    I think everyone who wants to be involved with "pizza activities" should have to sign a waiver and pay a $5 fee so that if they get bad pizza, they have insurance, and can possibly get reimbursed for the cost of the bad pizza.

    That was my first thought...then I got roped in out of boredom.

    Of course, the reason it worked was because we have all met the OP at some tournament...

    Support the "Future Dough Program." (Oops, that ended up being a weird double entendre. Or maybe not.)

    But how then will pizza makers ever be able to get in their 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to master their art?

    Not really. Some idiots from Chicago would take over and force us to consume those doughy thick crusts when most of us prefer a good thin crust, as the Italian masters intended it to be.

    Too many parents want to manufacture failure-free fencing experiences for their kids. Big mistake. Character is developed by how well we learn to deal with failure (with the possible exception of Leland).

    The Italian formula is:

    Good Pizza = (50) Mozzarella + (50) Gravy + (50) Dough* + (50) Initiative = 200

    *The New York version (which is even better) is made using Catskill water for an extra +100
