It is possible to register all-numerical domain names
« on: October 23, 2017, 12:04:24 PM »
There is also a .pizza TLD.

It had to be done:  http://3.14.pizza/

I don't know what I'm going to do with that domain yet. I just had to.   :P

Am I missing some significance that only Canadians/Americans get?

Pizza, also known as a Pizza Pie. Or in this case, Pi Pizza.

Doesn't translate to Australia. No-one combines pizza and pie like that.

While wrong to call it that, some people do call it a pie.  And given .com and most of the other TLDs were either taken or way too expensive (some in the thousands!) this one was somewhat fitting and decent.

I wouldn't say "wrong", as the world is full of now-odd phrases. It's just how the language evolved here. This is an interesting read on the history: https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/263732/where-does-pizza-pie-originate

And then there's Chicago-style pizza, which really does look like a pie:

Not in our general conversation.

We do understand it, though ... as an American peculiarity.

Pizzeria Uno, Chicago. I make it a point to not stand in line for food but this is the exception to that rule. The memory makes my mouth water ;D

I’ve never been to an Uno in Chicago, but I went to one somewhere else in USA, and mouth-watering is definitely not the memory I have of it... :/

I’m American, and Chicago style “pizza” makes me cry. And not tears of joy. It escapes me how anyone could prefer that to real pizza, be it classic Italian, or even a good NY style slice (if it’s of high quality). I mean, it’s not just the thickness, but the having the ingredients in the wrong order... who wants toasty tomato and untoasty cheese?!?

I have to admit that this is a memory from 1991, when I was working in Chicago. There was only 1 Uno, there was a line every night, and their 'deepdish' pizza, albeit no pizza, was worth waiting for.

For all I know they are a chain now and taste like Dominos, but the memory is still intact.  8)

I actually happen to like Dominos. They changed their recipe recently, and now it is really good.

However, no pizza, from any place on earth, will beat Bristol Pizza in Bristol, CT. They, hands down, have the absolute BEST pizza. I am over a hundred miles away, otherwise I would eat that stuff every day and night. They are absolutely amazing.

Well, if the 100 miles is towards the NYC direction, Colony Grill Pizza in Stamford CT is fantastic!

I have tried it.  It really isn't that bad.  I prefer and love New York style thin crust pizza, though.  Much closer to the old country than Chicago pizza.
Sometimes you have to look at life like a dog.  If you can't eat or hump it, piss on it and walk away.

If we're going to exchange pizza addresses: whenever you're in Amsterdam, be sure to visit YamYam. Italian food and the best thin-crusted pizza this side of the North Sea. They have a truffle pizza on the menu that alone is worth the 60k drive I have to make. But then, I really like truffle.

No one so far has mentioned the semi-famous 1688.com (if you don't get it, here's a hint: what else ends with "baba"?)

I think in Australia we call that a "deep dish" pizza. Pie's generally imply they have have some kind of top, normally pastry but in the case of Shepherds Pie, mashed potato.

They were already franchising when you found them, although you did experience the original location.
