This topic is not for the faint of heart. The debate to come will tear apart families and turn friends into enemies. Rivers will run red with the blood of 1,000 tomatoes. Cheese will be everywhere and dough — oh, God, so much dough. We are about to talk about pizza. Specifically (and dangerously), we are talking about deep-dish pizza, the most divisive pizza of all.

It all started last night when Jon Stewart, as our pals' over at Foodspin put it, "ripped Chicago pizza a new saucehole."

Then today on Twitter, this very long/very intense conversation (featuring many names you might recognize) happened. You will be shocked by the intolerance:

TL;DR — I believe in a world where deep-dish pizza and normal pizza can live in harmony. Also, I might be getting fired.
