The pizza WAS very good, I'm not sure if it is the world's best, I haven't been to Italy to try the pizza there among other places, but it was a nice idea for a road trip. Has anyone here ever heard of Cozet Pizza?


We have a place here in Kansas City named D'Bronx, I would be hard pressed to find better pizza that the D'Bronx Special.

    DiFara's square pie on Ave. J in Brooklyn, NY. The closest competitor is Patsy's in East Harlem.

      I wouldn'g get so hung up on the nomiker of Best Pizza in "the World". I recognize that there is always the chance for some place better to come along or to exist in a place of which I have never heard or been. So in the tradition of the "world" series, I will also cast my vote for DiFara's in Brooklyn as best pizza in the world and eagerly look forward to eat a pie that turns out to be better.

        The FAQ says one can edit and delete their own posts - that a small icon appears - I see none on my post where I accidentally posted the 'w' - I would like to delete it

        And edit in future - how?

        The site has a link to contacting Roadfood - but it reads 'donotreply.....' -- and indeed bounces - anyone know how to contact these folks?

          Rob, you need to log in first and then the edit icon will appear. I had that same problem.

            Thanks - yes - works

            But sure CRAZY - if one has just posted, one would assume they were 'logged in'

            So wonder how that works? But I guess we won't go there.

              The best sausage, onion, mushroom pizza i have ever had thusfar, is from a little place called Pietros in the Bay View area of Milwaukee.I have since found out where they get their sausage(Dentice on the east side-thats all they make!!!!)and am almost able to replicate it at home......but still will drive a half hour to pick up one of their pies.

                      I know the key ingrediant in this sausage is fennel...not overpowering but enough so you know its there.Also garlic and lean pork is crucial.....

                        Interesting that you say 'lean pork' - when I have tried to make sausage I have tried to go lean but each time it ends up rather dry - I've been told to add significant amounts of the 'solid white fat' that is usually readily available when you ask the butcher.

                        What about some chili (pure chili not the chili beans type McCormicl powder)?

                        Ever use sage also?

                        I guess fresh ground black pepper goes without saying.

                          The PORK should be lean-but by all means you need to add the white fat recommended-sage would be good in a sausage-but then would not be as good on a pizza as Italian sausage...but very good eating!Chili would be good to kick it up abit, although i think red pepper flakes, cayenne,or some chipotle seasoning would be better,just my opinion!!!

                            "Red pepper flakes" -- been 'studying' this area - these flakes are from variety of peppers that are ONLY hot and little or no own flavor - have found by getting some different chilis - New Mexicos, guajillas, anchos, pasillas, etc. - that ALSO have taste - results change dramatically. If the flavorful chilis don't have enough Scoville heat just add a bit more.

                            But basically pepper sold as generic 'red pepper' can be definitely improved on - and cost is minimal.

                            I mentionned sage because a few of the recipes for Italian also add sage - but indeed it is the main spice in your basic breakfast sausage.

                              There is probably a sausage making thread you can check out by using the forums link at the top of the page...i am sure someone will point out that we got off the subject of pizza-meet you on the other thread for more discussion.....

                                Well the topic of this thread is rather 'off' anyhow so doubt if the Forum Police will be showing up. But think we got down to the basics in any case.

                                  Wouldn't it be fun to be able to travel around the US, taking the comments on this thread and making up your own mind? When Houston's restaurants first decided to offer pizza on their menu, one of the executive chefs actually traveled around Italy searching for just the right pie to re-create in their restaurants. Not a bad gig, eh?

                                  Anyay, living in PHX, I am a long way from the renound Pizza Dynasties that exist in Chicago and New York. But here in the Southwest, for my money one of the best has to be Oregano's. Sure it's a chain, albiet a small but growing one. The places are always packed, but for the simple reason that they do a mean pie, Chicago style.

                                  If you're looking for a tasty, thin, wood-fired pizza with no wait, try Goldie's in Scottsdale. The place is a sports bar, but they take their pizza very seriously. (They also own Zipp's, with 3 or 4 of them in the area, their Black and Blue burger rocks, but that is for another thread.)

                                  For something a little more upscale in a really neat setting, Pizzaria Bianco in downtown PHX is top notch. The place is in an old house and, while you are waiting for a table you can walk next door where they have another old house. Sit on the porch or inside in one of the rooms and have a drink until your name is called.
