DC Jumbo Slice Rivalry. Quaint in context of the far-superior Philly and Jersey boardwalk jumbo slices.
Max Read’s entire Pizza Belt analysis is correct, and his observation in footnote three is especially trenchant:
“Those born and raised inside the confines of the Pizza Belt, spoiled by its riches, often confuse "adequate pizza” for “bad pizza.” This is from whence complaints like the above—that Washington, D.C. cannot produce “a single decent slice"—arise. There is plenty of adequate pizza in Washington D.C., and some good pizza. Only those weaned on the pizza of New Jersey or Connecticut, and who have never encountered the horror of الربع الخالي, misunderstand that pizza as "bad.”“
