Pizza in the Midwest

Does anyone know of a pizza place in NE Kansas that has New York style pizza. We have just moved to Topeka, and have not found 1 place that tastes as good as NY / NJ pizza.

    The KC contingent will chime in. Not many Italians in Topeka. Most all of the Italian community in KC came from Sicily. New place in the crossroads(DTKC) pizza bella, has a wood fired oven:

    Just as an aside, KC'ers HATE anything to do with NY, especially if it involves the YANKEES

    mcoge-

    As a native (Western) New Yorker who's lived in Topeka for the past 20 years, I have to say that the only place here with pizza even remotely close to NY style is Glory Days. Are you from NY?

    The best NY style pizza in this area is at d'Bronx in Kansas City - we usually go the location in KCMO on 39th Street near KU Med.

    Bill - yeah, they do hate the Yankees - that's why I love to wear my Yankee jersey to the "K" when the Yankees come to town (the only reason to attend a Royals game, IMHO).

    These days(years? Decades?) that's certainly true[|)]

    If you venture to KC, it's easy. Take a straight shot on I-70. Here is a list of pizza places one hour from you.

    Tarantino’s
    Minsky's
    Primo Pizza & Pasta
    Cupini’s
    Grinders
    Art of Pizza
    Pizza Bella
    d'Bronx

    I personally suggest Grinders. It's an damn honest dive, serving crakery crust pizza with an extremely varied topping assortment. Waitresses are gruff, don't let it scare you (although if you're from the NE, you'll be just fine!) HUGE beer assortment. If you're a beer snob, you'll be perfectly at home with microbrews from all over the country. You'll find it on 18th St. Take I-70, merging onto 670. Exit on Oak, turn left on 18th, it's on the right.
