Watch Jon Stewart Call a Truce in the War on Deep-Dish Pizza


After comparing Chicago-style pizza to “sex with a corpse made of sandpaper,” Jon Stewart wants to put an end to the Strife of Pie. “In articulating that sentiment, I may have implied that deep-dish pizza tastes like string cheese that had been baked for two hours inside of Mike Ditka’s ass,” he said on last night’s Daily Show. “Perhaps I’ve overreacted with my rant and tirade, but it’s only because of how special pizza is to all of us here in New York City.” He enlisted Matthew Broderick, Steve Buscemi, and Michael Strahan to showcase the magic of thin-crust pies, and brought on Marc Malnati of Lou Malnati’s for an on-air tasting. But, of course, Stewart made a new enemy in the peacemaking process.
