There are certain dishes, like pizza and barbecue, that inspire opinions, heated discussions, and classifications to such detail that they almost require their own taxonomic rank.
Having worked at a pizza parlor during the length of my high school years, I certainly have my own ideas of what makes pizza good. There is a natural instinct to want to fill up all the space with excess — the more is better school of pizza and life — but it's not just about filling up space that make it taste good. It's about the interplay of the toppings and the negative space between them that makes it taste good. The things that aren't there are as important as the ones that are. It's about proper curation. That's part of what makes Casey's Pizza so good.
