I know few live in my area, but I do have an important announcement for any of you who do visit or for the few who live around here.

For several years I touted Pete's in Daytona Beach as the closest thing to good NYC thin sliced pizza.  Well, my new go to pizza place is Luigi's in Holly Hill.  Luigi is making serious inroads into Pete's business and deservedly so.  He gives you a far better product IMHO.  I don't go to Pete's anymore.

Once I see the police from Daytona Beach and the EVAC guys and gals at Luigi's, the transistion will have been completed.  And the only reason they are not there yet, is they still probably don't know about it.  It's gonna happen.

Luigi is no stranger to the area.  He had an incredibly successful business on West Dixie Highway opposite Plantation Bay; a beautiful single home development.  But, the rent got ridiculous and he refused to re-up.  So, he started all over again in this little town of Holly Hill. 

This is wonderful pizza! I took my son, SK, here.  He loved it.  I went with my father, JohnA, too.  He doesn't eat pizza, but he liked the salad.  You know the older folkes have digestion problems.

My Favorite would be Sally's Apizza in New Haven (I do not like Spot or Pepe's), Grimaldi's Under the brooklyn Bridge in NYC, and Freddie's in LOng Branch NJ.

I dont eat frozen Pizza unless I HAVE to.  And I will not order chain pizza either.  I am fortunate to live where we have so many decent pizza places that you just go there.

I really do have to get some pics of the great pizza at Capriccio's in Richmond.  For Richmond you aren't likely to do any better for NY style.

I have tried it and it's not awesome.   There is a reason why Imo's is not one of the biggest pizza chains in the country.

The Squirrel Hill shops like Mineos is absolutely out of this world. Its all in the dough. Never had anything like it anywhere else. Kinda sweet and chewy. Its to die for.

Here are some of my favorites from "over the years":

Villanova Inn, New Castle, PA. Great food and cheap beer!

Inner-Circle Pizza in Poland OH. Never disappointed. Great wings, too.

Grotto Pizza in Dewey Beach, DE. Someone above observed that everyting tastes good in the salt-air. Grotto Pizza certainly does.

Ledo Pizza in suburban DC. There's something about sweet sauce on thin square pieces that is a refreshing change of pace.

Faccia Luna, Clarendon Metro, Arlington, VA. We always enjoyed their wood-fired pies with their generous antipasto.

Covino's in Plano, TX is our Dallas-area choice for a "Faccia Luna" antipasto+pizza meal. Extremely nice folks run this place. And they "import" their wonderful tiramisu from NJ!

Mario's on Wilson BV in Arlington, VA. Their square pieces must be comsumed immediately; they do not "travel". I always had one with "pep" and another with BBQ while waiting for Lefty to whip up my ham, steak, & cheese sub.

Campisi's Egyptian in Dallas. Great atmosphere and good (for Dallas) oval-shaped, thin-crust pies.

Since we moved from McLean, VA to Dallas in 2005 a number of "gourmet" pizza places have sprung up, Olivella's in Park Cities being the best (IMHO) among them. But Fireside Pies @ Legacy-Plano, Campania in Southlake, Coal Vines in Dallas, and Grimaldi's (of NYC fame) in Allen all serve wonderful Neopolitan-style pizza.

With these places Dallas, the corporate home of Pizza Hut, has moved from a "chain-pizza desert" to the "big leagues" of pizza.


A little more than a year later I'd add a wonderful new place in "Old Town" McKinney, TX to my list:  Sauce of the Square.  Their crust recipe is designed by "Voila", the best bread bakery in the Metroplex and they make a pie to rival Olivella's as the best Neopolitan pizza west of the City.  In fact, Voila's baguettes are the best I've had west of Paris!

Wow that Roseland Apizza( See Review) sure looks as it would be at the top of my list!! I have got to get there!! As for me Lombardis, and Patsys, would be up near the top! But Iv'e had some amazing pie at my Brothers place just eating a nice warm slice of cheese from a slice pie!!  Rocco's In Bedminster N.J. (plug plug!) I know that they use good ingredients and that is half the battle sometimes!!

I had the pleasure of eating some of the pizza at LaScicilia on Washington Ave in Belleville, NJ, right across the street from city hall.  A great Grandma & traditional pie, their review by the Star Ledgers Munchmobile Pizza Patrol was very favorable, a great tasting sauce with a crust with a nice crunch.

Yeah I have and I have such mixed feelings on it really. I like it concept that they are trying to do the CPK thing and make "artisanal" style pizzas with higher end quality goods but I have never had anything but a "meh" experience about it.
 
Constistently the service is pretty poor. My mom and I went there about 2 months ago for dinner and we were practically the only ones in the restaurant at 6pm, can't remember what day of the week. It took forever for out waitress to get our order, I never got a refill on my water, and it took 10 min of waiting and a trip up to the bar to get our bill.
 
The pizza is ok in my opinion and despite the fact that they used higher end quality goods I can't help but feel like the pizzas are overpriced for what you get. If I remember correctly a smaller sized pie is at least $13 and I can easily put 1 away by myself. The larger pies go upwards of $18 and that is just a little too rich for my blood for what I feel like I am getting.
 
With that said I think that their salads are pretty good and fulfilling. They have about 8 different kinds and are relatively moderately priced at around $5 for a half and $8-9 for a full one. Appetizers always seem to be a good idea in concept but lacking a little bit. Last time we got the breadsticks with marinara and while the bread was pretty tasty the marinara was pretty darn bland.
 
It may be worth a stop by if you are looking for that kind of experience and happen to be in the area but I can't really recommend making a trip for the sole purpose of going there.
 
I also miss CPK being there. It is probably my favorite chain, behind The Pub, and if it was still there I know I would be there about once a week because I think they can just do so many tasty things with their pizzas, plus the consistency in service and pies is pretty darn solid.

I'm keen on Phil's in Chicago, on 35th St and Aberdeen in Bridgeport, just east of Bubbly Creek. The crust is thin but breadier than the "cracker" places like Vito and Nicks. The cheese is high quality and the sausage is as good as any I've had, very flavorful.

Aurelio's at Harrison and Canal is very good when it's good but it's inconsistent; sometimes it comes undercooked. But when done well it's very good; thin crispy crust, excellent cheese, good sauce and quality toppings.

By far the best pizza in Miami has to be "Andiamo"! Authentic Italian (NOT American/Italian) pizza cooked in a real brick oven, in 10 years on Biscayne avenue's Design District it has become a central point of reunion, hey, you can even give your car a full valet treatment as you enjoy the setting sun on the terrace with your vino e pizza!


I go once a week and spend 2 to 3 hours relaxing, eating and doing my other favourite pass time...trading FX on my laptop!

DeMarini's in Menomonee Falls, WI (western 'burb of Milwaukee).
Thin crust..not powdery..crisp...nice amount of grease...sauce is the best.  Their cheese pizzas have about 2lbs of SLICED mozz on them.  Awesome

My wife and I went to Pizza Palace in Knoxville this week.  I've lived here 17 years, had heard Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive Ins Dives had highly recommended it and still had not been there, until this week.
It's a drive -in which makes it a rather unique pizza joint.  We ordered a pepperoni & sausage, along with some onion rings ( had heard those were grewt as well).  The pizza was awesome,  so darn good.  Excellent cheese and lots of flavor.  The car hop said they make everything themselves, fresh dough, make their own sausage.  Truly an outstanding pizza.
Onion rings were good as well.  I'll come back again.  Can't believe I've been looking for a decent pizza place in Knoxville for a long time and finally found it.

Thin crust is all I really care for. TC Lando's and Sal's Pizza are probably my favorites.

My new favorite pizza place since I've moved is definitely the Reservoir Tavern in Boonton NJ. Outstanding is the only word I can find to describe it. Grrrr.....now I'm annoyed because it's too late to get some...

When in Chicago, ya gotta try Phil's Pizza.  Absolutely captures the Chicago style taste 100%.  They roll out the sausage to cover the entire crust. Sausage in every bite!

Although I could eat at several pizza places across the river in Evansville, Indiana, I have over the last year favored a little hole-in-the-wall place (two tables) in Henderson, Kentucky called Dave's Pizza (614 North Green Street) that has been around since 1970.  They have a very delicate, almost potato chip thin (but sturdy) crust.  I've known about it for years, but it has risen to the top of the list in my area because its competitors have gradually fallen down on the job.  They have few (but good) toppings.  Nothing fancy.  It's the crust that brings you back time and again.  The secret is in the oven; it's what makes it stand out among other pizza parlors.  People from Evansville (10 miles away) who know about it come through its door fairly frequently.

Faccia Luna's first store was the one in State College and is one of the nearly infinite number of reasons why that area is called "Happy Valley".

So true.  It has been my experience that the further East one goes, the better the pizza.
