Kansas City Joint Thu, 04/12/07 3:57 PM (permalink)
Lived in KC from '81-86. Worked just acrss the river in North KC (south of Gladstone). We would order pizza from a place just after you crossed the bridge in to downtown. From what i remember, it was in a highrise building, maybe a retirement type building.
The crust had a slightly sweet crust.
Antone got a clue to which I am referring?

Regards,

Bo

    Gaetano's!

    That was good, good stuff. I remember that crust vividly.

    When I was on a jury at the nearby Jackson County Courthouse, we were fed Gaetano's pizzas. We enjoyed the pizza for so long, we held up the course of justice.

        Gone, I'm afraid. Owner died in '97, and for some reason I'd rather not know, the recipes are the property of the last landlord.

          The best pizza in the KC area is hands down Fun House Pizza & Pub on 40 Hwy in Independence.

            I'll just say I strongly disagree with that statement and leave it at that.

                I moved to Kansas City six years ago, and realized pretty quickly that this isn't the best place for pizza.  Barbecue, sure, but truly good pizza pies are few and far between.
                 
                So far I've tried:
                 
                d'Bronx
                The Art of Pizza
                Leo's
                Minsky's
                Waldo
                Grinders
                Rosati's
                Italian Gardens To Go
                 
                Of those, my award for #1 best pizza in KC goes to... The Art of Pizza, on Baltimore Ave.
                 
                They bill themselves as NY-style.  I don't know whether they are or not - they certainly seem similar to the pies I've had in NYC - but I don't really care.  All I know is that when I tried a slice of plain cheese, the most reliable indicator of whether a pizza place is any good or not, it blew me away.

                  Sadly it seems d'Bronx has gone downhill since the original owners sold, the one at 103rd & Metcalf is just not that good especially compared to the original on 39th, sandwiches and pizza just missing something.
                  You might want to include Waldo Pizza on your list of good KC pizza, George's was good also but closed.
                   
                  And I agree that Art of Pizza is pretty good pie, that's where we usually go when we're in the Crossroads.
