it is an awesome collection of pizza styles in our area, although ; some pictures are mislabeled. i'm sure the newspaper leans towards places that advertise with them, as their list is missing several excellant pizza joints including my favorite,Lino's in kingston.

Mosca, Thanks for helping with lunch today!
 
I think my Dominick's picture is better.  I always tell them to go light on the cheese.

That really is well done.  The large photo in the middle makes the pizza look like a giant Danish.  Thanks for posting this Mosca.

I count 25 different photos on the poster.  Would it be possible to sample each style in 1 day?

Doesn't anyone there put anything but cheese on their pizza? How 'bout some Italian sasitch or something ...

I went to Bettelli's  Villa last night.  Last time I was there was 1986, and two business tycoons were trying to woo me
 
The pizza was good with a nice crispy twice baked crust.  Very good mozzarella and sauce.

Very nice find. The next step would be for people to start checking off each type as you try it?

Fabulous and tempting.
 
lou987 -- I don't know this newspaper in particular, but I think it is unlikely that the pizzas were chosen based on advertisers.  If you read the blurb, the pizzas were nominated by readers.  Although you might find it hard to believe, even in these cash-strapped days, most newspapers still have a wall separating advertising (what they get of it) from editorial.   And restaurant critics are adamant that advertising can't affect their reviews.
 
The blurb also says that on page 3C there's a list of all nominations received.  Sounds pretty transparent to me.
 
Unless this was a "special advertising supplement" -- which it doesn't appear to be -- advertising, or failure to do so, most likely had no impact on the selections.   You can disagree with them, but you should blame the readers, not the journalists who compiled the selections from their nominations.
 
I'm always struck by how awful the "readers' favorites" picks in the annual "best of" issues in the local magazines in the Twin Cities are.  The pizzas that win are often chains, and "Famous Dave's" usually wins for barbecue.
