Last night, the Chicago mayor appeared on the Food Network show to critique pizza and then award the winning contestant a city proclamation that he “personally wrote” and a $1,000 check. Emanuel is tough to please: He neither liked Philly’s Finest Sambonis’ stuffed meat pizza (“the meats and the cheese work well together, but it’s a little wet in the middle”) nor Aloha Plate’s deep-dish pie ("this is a great Chicago pizza … though the tomato sauce overwhelms everything else”). Regardless, Emanuel still seemed to enjoy himself — don’t miss his giggle at 01:52.
