When we were shooting Date Night (or as it’s called in Germany, Fig Nacht), Steve gave me the most excellent birthday present: eight frozen Gino’s East deep-dish pizzas. Like Steve, Gino’s East pizza got its start in Chicago, where people know pizza. Like Steve, they are stuffed full of goodness. Whether you get the mainstream cheese version, a meat-filled blockbuster, or the more thoughtful and indie spinach, Steve and these pizzas never fail to delight. I first became aware of these pizzas when I was a young improv student at the Second City. I would go watch the likes of Steve and his castmates Amy Sedaris and Stephen Colbert perform. I was only 22, but I remember thinking, “Wow, I would like to get some deep-dish pizza after this.” All kidding aside, they were the best. As students, we wanted to be them. (I’m still talking about the pizzas, but I guess the same is true of Steve, Amy, and Stephen.) And there’s no point in comparing Gino’s East with thin-crust East Coast pizza. They’re two completely different things, and both are fantastic. People sometimes say to me, “Oh, which do you like better? Deep-dish pizza or Alec Baldwin?” And I say, “That’s a ridiculous question.” Gino’s East deep-dish pizzas bring people a lot of joy. They are just so excellent. It’s fucking ridiculous that these pizzas have never won an Emmy. -Tina Fey
