They Don't Make Pizza Like They Use To

I've lived most of my life in Joliet, IL and remember that the pizza that I use to enjoy in the 50's, 60's and 70's somehow tasted better than what's available today. Local places like Pastore's in Cresthill, Ricco's in Joliet on Jefferson St. and LeBars on Plainfield Rd. were just simply the best I can ever remember having and I've tried most of the best in Chicagoland. All of the pizza's were thin crust and had marvelous cheese and great sausage(not necessarily large chunks Ricco's had little dots of sausage about every 1/2 inch) which together with a very tasty crust made for simply the best pizza I will probably ever taste. Even the old Pizza Box on Raynor had a special taste not found in todays assembly line Pizza's. Unfortunately none survive
past the 70's.
