What happened to American Flatbread in Vermont? If this isn't among the top 10 pizzas (een though it calls itself "flatbread") there's something really wrong with the survey.

I have eaten pizza in many locations over the years and tend to agree with Jane and Michael that east coast pizza, especially here in CT, is the best there is. I recently had THE best pizza...thin crust that is so flavorful that you want to eat all of it....and it was right under my nose at Antigone's (pronounced An-tig-o-nees) in Torrington, CT. Michael, if you and Jane want to take a little drive, please check it out sometime. You won't be disappointed. I know that you drove here to check out the hot dogs at Shiek's a few years ago (which I THINK may have changed hands because it is now called Shelley's New York Style Deli with a different phone number) and Antigone's is only about a mile away. They are closed on Monday, however.

I agree with the above comment.
American Flatbread is simply the best IMO.
Don't be fooled by the fact the staff refuses to call it pizza !
Since they opened here in Burlington, I kick the chains to the curb !

Good little hidden gem,
Guiseppe's Pizza on E Caston Rd, Akron, OH

One that I remember from my past, Maronne's Pizza, Wahiawa, HI. I can still remember the sights, the smells, the taste over 40 years later......

Mark
Owings Mills, MD Great crabcakes, pizza however is a wasteland

They have amazing pizza, the secret being in the sauce made from fresh tomatoes and herbs (no canned or dried stuff) and their excellent dough.

I was drawn to them because they are one of the only pizzarias I've seen to have vegan pizza on the menu.. normally a pretty bland choice for pizza, soy-cheese just doesn't cut it. My favorite has roasted garlic cloves, walnuts, basil, fresh tomato, and artichoke hearts.. and I think it's even better than my favorites from the meat-eating days; Pizzaria UNO and Giordanos in Chicago. I've had friends not even realize that there was no cheese until they were done with the meal because they were just so impressed with the flavor!

Definitely worth a visit next time you're in Detroit, they also recently added a nice cocktail lounge.. nothing like a Bombay Sapphire martini to go with some breadsticks and garlic tomato marinara.



Amici Pizza's vegan concoction may very well be delicious, but to me, no cheese = no pizza.

At first i was a little hurt by the guy that mentioned seattle having no idea about pizza. But then giving it some thought, i know we have crap for pizza here realtive to the east coast. Maybe if tom douglas came up with some kind of salmon topping combo and marketed it, we would be on the map, but until then i recognize it is crap. This is making me hungry... does anyone know a way to order nyc pizza via fedex? check out my favorite seattle spots: (more seafood than pizza)

With Pizza it is all about the crust. Best I have had is Ilio DePallo's outside of Buffalo, NY.

Any list that does not mention maruca's in seasdie heights new jersey is not worth the paper it is written on! also it seems some of these places stretch the definition of pizza- spagos - come on!

To me. top ten lists are just one person's ideal. I know that if I want a pepperoni slice, I go to LaRoma's. for old world style, sausage and peppers, the Plaza, both in Rome N.Y. For ny style sausage and peppers and additional toppings, Tony's in Utica and just sausage, Joe's in Whitesboro. Each has a totally different taste and shape, 2 are round, 1 is oval and the other is rectangular. Each is great tasting but none taste anything like the others.

Dan Wathen-
I have eaten at Ilio Depaolo's several times and thoroughly enjoyed it, but have never tried the pizza. I will have to do that next time. Even though I am not a wrestling fan, I do appreciate all the memorabilia.

Tom Douglas does do pizza, and maybe not too far from the (guessing) tongue-in-cheek comment you made. It's definitely not like you'll get in the Northeast pizzarias

http://tomdouglas.com/serious/index.html

One of the better pizzas in the Seattle, IMO, is found at the Northlake Tavern, near the University of Washington. The pepperoni is especially good. But it is of the thicker, doughy crust genre.

Other than a short stint in Wisconsin, I have lived in Chicagoland all of my life. And, there is no pizza like Chicago pizza. Friends have had me try their "Chicago style" pizza at their local (out of state) restaurants, but none compare to the real thing.

I recently walked out in the hallway and took an informal survey. I said, "If you had to recommend one pizza parlor to a visiting friend, what would it be?"

Over and over again I received the same 4 answers: Giordano's, Edwardo's, Gino's East, and Lou Malnati's.

One comment about Lou's. Seems everyone else I surveyed felt as strongly as I did about Lou's. There are two camps - either you love Lou's, or...don't. It's a thumbs down for me. Me? I love Giordano's - both stuffed and thin. :)

One of the BEST thin crusts is north of Chicago in Waukegan, Illinois...it's called the Qnset Hut. Best in Chicago is Pizzieria Uno. I have never had a great pizza west of the Mississippi River..I think it's to do with the water.

peppertree: try NYPD in the Lake WOrth area. I like the white pizza, but alas my wife from New Haven deems it "acceptable" and only as a last resort. I tell them to "burn the bottom" when ordering and sometimes it works...sometimes not. aloha. bbk.

spudnut: the pizza joint Markey referred to is named Brooklyn Pizza. i had a similar epiphany with a little mom & pop place in a strip mall at boynton beach mall. the name escapes me but it is right across from the sports authority. their slice broke da mouth. bbk.

Tastes are so subjective that I avoid "best of" tags. My current favorite is Filippo's Italian Restaurant, 6915 W Lincoln Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53219 (414) 321-4040. It's a Sicilian originated pizza as that is where Filippo was born and raised; very nice elderly fella. I worked with a former cook and he said that the dough was made and put in proofing boxes for use the following day which explains the fantastic crust. The crust is very chewy in a good way and the home made sauce and Dentice Brothers Italian sausage are icing on the cake. Zaffiro's, Lisa's and Villa Roma all do nice thin crust pizza's when the thin mood hits. Someday I'll have to try those New Haven za's but they strike me a bit too plain but then how do I know if I haven't sampled one? Folks whose opinion I value sure seem to think they're the bomb so I'll bet they are.

Gino's East in Chicago, at their old location on Superior St. They have a really authentic sausage "patty" that they would layer on top of the cheese and other stuff inside their pizza's. I remember going there during the Christmas season and being right around the corner from the Michigan Avenue shopping district, the line was wrapped around the side of the building. It would take hours to get in. The host/hostess would take orders for drinks and appetizers and bring them outside to you. Another great part was that you could draw on anything on the inside of the restaurant. I have had glasses and silverware with people's names on them etc, not very sanitary but who cares.

Giordano's belongs in the top 10 for sure. Barbiere's near Miller Park in Milwaukee deserves more credit for their excellent pizza.

My fav around the East coast is Tony's Baltimore Grill in Atlantic City! Great thin crust in a really terrific "roadfood" kinda place! The home made sausage on the pizza is the best!

My favorites. Have not been there in over 12 years but I love G&S Pizza in Taunton, Ma. Also Buddy's Pizza in Detriot. Here in Las Vegas we have a "detriot style" pizza place like Buddy's called North Side Nathans. We also have a small So-Cal chain called Graziano's in Vegas. Excellent!
