(Flickr/supafly)" /><strong>Jon and Rahm on pizza&nbsp;</strong></div></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Last week,&nbsp;The Daily Show host Jon Stewart went on a <a href="http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/wed-november-13-2013/tower-record">hilarious rant</a> about his disdain for Chicago-style deep dish pizza, and Chicagons reacted not so much in anger, but dismay. How could anyone deny deep dish pizza? It&rsquo;s our greatest culinary export!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>A couple days later, Mayor Rahm Emanuel <a href="http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-mayor-pizza-slam-20131115,0,7053662.story" target="_blank">sent</a> two deep dish pizzas covered in anchovies to the comedian. &ldquo;Jon, deep dish with dead fish. Love, Rahm,&rdquo; reads a handwritten note.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>And while the stunt was a welcome reprieve from the city&#39;s more pressing affairs, it also reminded me of Chicagoans&rsquo; typical reaction to outsiders that make misinformed judgements about the city.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The truth is, people who don&rsquo;t know Chicago will probably not like it. But instead of reacting to judgements, what we as Chicagoans could do is share the things that make our city&nbsp;as rich and unique as it is.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Finding food variety&nbsp;</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>First, there are multiple types of Chicago-style pizza. And in my opinion, the variety people talk about the most &ndash; deep dish &ndash; isn&#39;t the best.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>I&rsquo;m not new to Chicago. This has been my home for 26 years, and for all that time, my family and I (along with many others on the North, West, and especially South Sides) have been more likely to eat Chicago thin crust pizza than deep dish.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Besides being cheaper, it&#39;s more accessible both in availability and ease of consumption. Square cut and crunchy on top, Chicago thin crust pizza remains one of my favorite local culinary traditions.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Pulling from tradition&nbsp;</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Food in Chicago is not just what we eat; it helps define our way of life. It is who we are and where we came from. Despite its faults, this is a city&nbsp;born out of the dreams and aspirations of people from across the globe, and our food traditions reflect that.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>You can see this in a Chicago food blog <a href="http://chicago.seriouseats.com/2013/09/chicago-food-glossary-a-guide-to-the-windy-citys-unique-eats.html?ref=search">Serious Eats post</a>&nbsp;that gives&nbsp;a &quot;glossary&quot; of Chicago food. More than just a list, it&#39;s a means of exploring Chicago&rsquo;s diversity and food history.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>&ldquo;Like all great cities should, Chicago has a collection of dishes that were invented within its borders and that you can&#39;t get anywhere else,&quot; wrote blogger Nick Kindeslperger. &quot;Some are so well known they&#39;ve entered the national discussion, while others are so esoteric they may only be familiar to those in a certain part of town.&rdquo;&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Kindeslperger breaks down everything from the Chicago-style hot dog to Italian beef, the <a href="http://chicago.seriouseats.com/2013/09/chicago-food-glossary-a-guide-to-the-windy-citys-unique-eats-slideshow.html#show-352874">Maxwell Street Polish</a> to the <a href="http://chicago.seriouseats.com/2012/07/the-10-best-jibaritos-in-chicago.html">jibarito</a>&nbsp;(a personal favorite). The list traverses cuisines with ancestral leanings from cross continents, but all are also firmly rooted in the inventive, hearty culinary traditions of the Midwest.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>To me, this multiplicity&nbsp;is a big part of what makes Chicago great. So rather than dwell on those who can&rsquo;t understand one style of our pizza, let&#39;s point them to the equally remarkable and delicious foods we call our own.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>When friends from out of town ask me what to do here, I usually tell them to eat the food &mdash;&nbsp;to go outside their comfort zone and discover that Chicago is more diverse than they could have ever imagined.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><em>Britt Julious&nbsp;blogs about race and culture in and outside of Chicago.
