Pizzas without tomato sauce to me are an abomination, but I was raised on tomato sauce and cheese  pizza pies.


Gee, I was raised on some with sauce, some with crushed tomatoes, and some with no tomato product at all. 
 
But heck, what do they know about apizza in New Haven?


I guess it was because my momma was Polish and did not make pizzas at home - I can see my upbringing left an awful lot to be desired in terms of my overall appreciation of pizzas - I will go to my grave sorely lacking in pizza imagination sadly.

    oh, i got it that it wasn't actual pierogi on the pizza - just the fillings that are normally in them!!!

    as for tomato sauce - for me that's a BIG no as a topping for pierogi.  grew up using sour cream and to me, that's just the 'slavic' way to eat them. 

    tomato sauce is basically 'italian' - so, that goes on ravioli (or any pasta).  i'd never consider using sour cream on ravioli as that wouldn't be the 'italian' way to do it. 

    although, galumbki do have tomato sauce...so, i guess tomato sauce isn't entirely 'italian'.  putting it on pierogi just didn't interest ME at all!

    i'm okay with white pizza's - have never really had a 'fantastic' one though.  the lack of the tomato sauce is what gets me, i guess. i really do love a good marinara!! and make my own (with a decent amount of garlic in it...lol, read that as a ton of it!) the white pies that i've had also didn't have enough cheese on them.

    i was up in new england once for a vacation - did a lot of driving around and visited more than a few states to see the sites.  got sidetracked/lost and ended up in new hampshire - stopped to get directions and to eat.  that was one of the best pizza's i've had.  that was a 'regular' style pie - tomato sauce, mozz, pepperoni.  excellent crust - not to thick; not too thin and just chewy enough on the inside while being crusty on the outside.

        Did you ask where the owner learned how to make pizzas?

        I believe tomatoes and sauces from them originated in Peru with the Aztecs.

          I have always been of the opinion that a good pizza is made with the right amount of cheese..and sauce..if not the pizza maker is cheating you..

                                I meant to say tomatoes are thought to have originated in Peru and were "discovered"  being harvested by Aztecs in Central America by European explorers and brought back to and introduced into Europe by early explorers and conquerors:

                                I didn't want to take this thread off on a tangent with too much info but I should have been more clear - I will try do better in the future!

                                  But heck, what do they know about apizza in New Haven?

                                   
                                  Not much if my experience is typical. Drove from Chicago to New Haven just to get a pizza. Went to Sally's and had a pizza inferior to Domino's----limp crust and sausuage and sauce that was bland and flavorless. The Sbarro's pizza we had at a rest stop on the Ohio Turnpike was better.
                                   
                                  Big disappointment; those New Haven pizzas look so good in photos. Our's looked great too, then we started in on it, uh-oh.

                                    I've never been to Sallys, but really enjoyed Pepe's the two times I visited, although frankly, even I wouldn't drive all the way to New Haven just to get a Pizza and I'm only 90 miles away in Rhode Island. Certainly a stop on a day trip to the area or passing through is well worth it.

                                      But heck, what do they know about apizza in New Haven?

                                       
                                      Not much if my experience is typical. Drove from Chicago to New Haven just to get a pizza. Went to Sally's and had a pizza inferior to Domino's----limp crust and sausuage and sauce that was bland and flavorless. The Sbarro's pizza we had at a rest stop on the Ohio Turnpike was better.
                                       
                                      Big disappointment; those New Haven pizzas look so good in photos. Our's looked great too, then we started in on it, uh-oh.
                                      I have found the Sbarro's on the turnpikes are generally much better than the ones you find in the malls - there is really no comparison.

                                        I've never been to Sallys, but really enjoyed Pepe's the two times I visited, although frankly, even I wouldn't drive all the way to New Haven just to get a Pizza and I'm only 90 miles away in Rhode Island. Certainly a stop on a day trip to the area or passing through is well worth it.

                                         
                                        Well I've been known to drive all the way to Long Beach Mississippi to get a shrimp sandwich at the Cajun Crawfish Hut. :) And you can eat at Lambert's, the throwed rolls place, on the way down.

                                          When you live in the hinterlands of Ohio and you are from NY and have been away from there for what seems like a lifetime  you would do it in a heartbeat for a good pizza pie!

                                              I enjoyed the rib-eye steak and the sides too.  And the throwed rolls which were fresh and tasty.

                                                That's really funny -- in a sick sort of deep-dish way.

                                                    The toppings don't matter much to me, other than I can't tolerate seafood so no anchovies, or shrimp, or clams, etc. What matters more is the overall taste and texture. I'll eat a great cheese slice, or a great loaded. I'll eat it deep dish, or thin crust, or fold-it crust. I'll eat Sicilian. I'll eat white, or Old Forge style, or Old World style. I'll eat pagache (potato pizza). I'll eat pitza, I'll eat apizza. But fergoodnesssake, do it right. Concentrate on quality, and get your ingredients to work together. And don't mistake quantity for quality; it's great that you can feed 4 people for $15, but if the pie sucks what's the point?

                                                      Last winter, I ate at Lambert's in Sikeston MO... never again. "Tourist trap" is the perfect description of that place with its mediocre, overpriced food, not to mention the lady on the keyboard and the guy announcing customer's birthdays over the P.A. system. What a joke! I couldn't get out of there fast enough.

                                                        Generally I like enough or maybe a lot of red sauce. I don't like pizza with a solid
                                                        top. It should slide around a bit. I was looking at pizza pictures. I would say just by looking
                                                        at many, I would not like to try. Here is a picture of one of my favorites in northeastern Ohio, Capo's,

                                                          The pizza in the picture was sold by the slice. They have it done right, they slightly precook
                                                          a pizza and set it aside until its needed.When you order they take a slice and do the final cook.
                                                          Its going to burn your mouth, but its the only way to serve pizza fresh.

                                                            My favorite topping is pepperoni or sausage...can't decide between the two.  I also like mushrooms, olives, extra cheese, and chicken as toppings.  I like getting chicken pizzas like the Mexican Pizza from Z Pizza or the BBQ Chicken Pizza from a variety of places.
