Upon seeing one long time roadfood poster repremanding a newbie for not using the search function, before starting a new thread, I used the search today function just to see what I could find out about what has already been written about Northwest Indiana and more specifically pizza in Gary , Indiana.
And much to my delight, I found this thread ! Thanks so much for bringing back some great memories.
I was born and raised in Gary. And despite all that has gone on with the city, I still have fond memories even after nearly 40 years after leaving. And pizza from the Tivioli Tap is just one of those many fond memories.
Tivoli Tap was some of the best pizza ever. But I am of the opinion that people like the pizza they grew up with as being the best. That is why there are so many differing opinions as to what really is the best pizza. But for me, it is so good to know that Tivioli Tap pizza still lives at Maxim's. Can't wait to get back to Merrillville to try it.
For those that have wondered what Gary , Indiana pizza is all about, now they can try some at either Maxim's in Merrillville, or at the Flamingo in Miller.
I had pizza at the Flamingo last summer, and as I say, can't wait to get back to try Maxim's version of the Tivoli Tap pizza.
