On Wednesday, Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill., was featured in Roll Call’s Chicago-style pizza tasting  dishing on deep dish pizza. On Thursday, he was defending the city's signature dish.  

Around 10 a.m. on Thursday, Roskam tweeted that a pizza museum was coming to Chicago next month. CNN’s Jake Tapper, a Roll Call alum, responded , “doesn’t make much sense given the bread pie Chicago thinks is pizza.” And the battle was on.
