Let's hear what pizza you like Best
New York-style, thin-crust pizza with spinach, artichoke hearts and feta cheese. mmmMMMMmmm, pizza.
I too like foxglove NY Style!!!!! foxglove
BTW...NEED PICS TOO!
Thin crust all the way. It can be crispy or not. Doesn't matter. Love it either way. Just keep it nice and thin.
Thin crust, light sauce & tons of green peppers & pineapple….just about anything else you add will be delicious.
I love both but deep dish requires not only a BIG appetite but also requires a fork and knife. I can enjoy a slice of NY or thin crust anytime with no utensils.
Thin crust all the way!!!! I don;t ever eat deep dish!
I like my pizza with tomato sauce and mozzarella (not fresh I want cheese that really melts). Simple is best, though for a change, I occasionally add mushrooms.
If you add pineapple, you shouldn't even call it pizza!
My favorites are (in no particular order):
Frank Pepe's in New Haven. Suoer thin and crisp. The Original Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana --- Home
Antico Forno in the North End of Boston. http://www.anticofornoboston.com/
Regina Pizzeria in the North End of Boston. I've been eating there for almost 60 years!
Regina Pizzeria - Boston's best pizza since 1926
John's in NYC. John's Pizzeria
Without a doubt, thin thin homemade dough loaded with sauteed veggies and some grilled pineapple (77paris style) then grilled on my pizza stone. YUMMMMM
Great thread, brooklynlobster!!
I'd have to say I'm quite pizza spoiled as I live within driving distance to both NYC and New Haven, CT. I will have to agree with phctourist, Pepe's and John's are close to the top of my all time favorite pizza's. I love the atmosphere of John's Pizzeria and you can't beat the crust of Pepe's. Is it lunch time yet?
carat If you live between Pepe and John's then you're not too far from Boston. If I lived that close, I would try my four favorites within four days and then try to decide which is my favorite. No question that Pepe has the best crust I've ever had and Regina has the best sauce/cheese combo but the least crisp crust of the four. The other two fall in between on both attributes.. Someday I'd like to combine an NYC trip with New England and try all four in a four day period.
This is true, phctourist. I've been to Boston many times, but I don't believe I've ever had pizza there. Which kind of blows my mind because I love pizza. I guess I never thought of Boston as a pizza town. A four day pizza trip.... Love it!!
carat You've never thought of Boston as a pizza town? If it weren't for your love of Pepe and John, I would doubt that you really know good pizza, but clearly, you do! Give it a try on your next visit. Go to the North End and walk into any non-chain pizza place. I guarantee that you will love it! As I said, above, my two favorites are Antico Forno (for the best crust and excellent topping) or Regina for good crust and the best sauce/cheese combination.
My dream pizza vacation would be to eat at Johns, Frank Pepe, Antico Forno, and Regina on consecutive days, so I could declare a favorite.
In my all-time favorite Jon Stewart rant, he describes Chicago-style deep-dish pizza as "an above-ground marinara swimming pool for rats." If you've never seen it, check out "Jon Stewart defends NY pizza" on youtube.
Just arrived here in Anchorage and I have been told the third best pizza as ranked by TripAdvisor is here. I see a pizza in my near future and will report back.
Each type has it's own strengths
Curious to know which NY pizza place is the best? Any recommendations???
My favorite is Johns. They have four locations and I've been to three of them. All were excellent. As I've said before, Johns is one of my favorite four.
foodinthecity83...my favorite in NYC is Juliana's Pizza in Brooklyn. If you have the opportunity to go there, make the trip. It will definitely be worth it.
In NYC, just go to any of the pizza shops where you can buy a slice at a time. In most cases, you will not be disappointed.
Deep dish, Chicago style, is the best. The other types are good too, especially NYC slices!
Thim crust with garlic Parmesan sauce, pepperoni, jalepnos and black olives.
I have lived in the Boston area all my life and would not consider it a pizza town although I do believe that Reginas is one of the best pizzas ever, followed by Marc Anthony's in Onset, MA The bar pies on the South Shore of Boston (Town Spa in Stoughton, Cape Cod Pizza in Brockton and Poopsies in Pembroke) are unique and awesome. Most local pizza joints seem to have mediocre greek style crust.
Pepes (even their outposts) is right up there!
NYC pizza can be hot or miss. None of it is usually bad but is hard to find the really good places in my opinion. I did find a place on Staten Island this week, Pizzeria Giove that was a casual restaurant with outstanding Neapolitan pizzas!
Buffalo has a unique but awesome pizza. The dough is fluffier and almost always has a special type of pepperoni that cups and chars. Picassos or any other neighborhood joint is outstanding!
