I have some friends who moved to the Boston area and they say they can’t find a good pizza anywhere.

Boston pizza is overrated. I lived there. The North End has excellent restaurants some of which have good pizza (Antico Forno). Pizzeria Regina is legndary but usually packed. If anything, I’d get bakery pizza in Boston. But Boston isn’t truly “a slice” city as is New York if that is desired. Boston is seafood, pubs and Dunkin Donuts.

pizzas that are churned out in the Mexican border town of San Diego.
I'm NYC born and raised. My first exposure to pineapple pizza was mid 80s in San Diego.
Made me want to barf just looking at it.

You might enjoy this...Many years ago,...early 80's.. New York magazine did its first survey of the best pizza in NYC..it's since become an annual feature of the magazine. But the FIRST winner was...wait for it..Goldberg's KOSHER Pizza in lower Manhattan. This was before the Internet..but the story generated tens of thousands of letters

A few years ago, I was in Los Angeles. I asked a person if there was a good pizza joint. He told me the name and the intersection. Then he said “In St. Louis...That's the closest good pizza place to Los Angeles that I know.

Agreed...in fact; pizza in Red England is crap, by and large.

Santarpio's in Eastie, by the airport end of the tunnel, used to be really good. My parents used to take us there as children mmmppphhh years ago. It was still great last time I was there 3-4 years ago.

Imagine there’s no pizza
I couldn’t if I tried
Eating only tacos
Or Kentucky Fried
Imagine only burgers
It’s frightening and sad

You’re lucky you have pizza
To feed your kids for you
Only frosting or cookies
And no dishes you must do
Imagine eating pizza
Each and every day

You may say that it’s junk food
But to me it’s so much more
It gives my life its meaning
And it makes a lot of dough

Imagine mozzarella
Anchovies on the side
And maybe, pepperoni
Rounds out your pizza pie
Imagine getting pizza
Delivered to your door

You don’t have to give up now
On my skateboard I will go
I’ll be back in 30 minutes
I just bought Dominoes

All I am saying
Is give pizza a chance
All I am saying
Give pizza a chance!
All I am saying
Is give pizza a chance
All I am saying
You’ve got to, got to give pizza a chance!

- Herman Cain

If you want to eat shitty pizza come to the Ozarks!

On the other hand, I recently ate pizza at Grimaldi's in Las Vegas (Caesar's Forum). Excellent!

Oh, and the lady in the article who states,"Las Vegas doesn't have any good food..." is out to lunch. At Mickey D's. I ate at Craftsteak. El Diablos, and Pearl. All great places. Many of the best chefs in the world are in Vegas. The days of the 99 cent buffet are gone. Even Gordon Ramsay's restaurants are good-except for the shouting! LOL!

My number 1 is Uno/Due
But Giordanos is a close second with their spinach stuffed.

Pretty much comes down to what I'm in the mood for.

Thin crust goes to White Cottage in Wood Dale.

I live in Boston - the pizza here sucks - especially in the North End. The restaurants think far too much of themselves.

Civic Boosterism Alert.....

Pittsburgh absolutely belongs on this list. We experienced a mass influx of Italians during the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Lots of mom and pop pizza shops that are VERY authentic. National chains have a tough time competing with them in this town.

I got a deep-dish pie at Gino's East one time. The cheese, the sauce, the sausage... it was all really good.

I'm just not sure it was pizza.

There will always be a rivalry between Chicago and New York, about who has the best pizza.
But when NEITHER of them are listed in the top 3 AND THEN both are out ranked
by SAN DIEGO, LAS VEGAS and BOSTON, you know some serious smokin's been going on.

Usually when Chicago are not one and two it is some snooty gourmet non-pizza beauty contest. I have had pizza in just about every part of the country, often recommended by locals. Chicago deep dish and NY pizzas are different but the best anywhere.

There's another great place for pizza in Vegas. At the Cosmopolitan on the second floor go down a long hall that has photos of famous Italian-Americans there is a NY-style pizza place at the end of the hall. Just a counter, a pizza oven, a pinball machine and a couple of tables. Excellent slices! Doesn't have a name - people called it No-Name Pizza.

I'm from Chicago area but I believe NYC-style pizza is the truest form of pizza. Chicago deep dish is good food but it is not true pizza. Globally, everything is compared to NYC pizza.

A few years ago, a channel (Travel Channel?) aired a feature where firemen from each city was given the other city’s pizza. Some reactions were comical.

Is it pizza if there’s no Provel cheese?
Onesto’s in St. Louis, or Talayna’s or Imo’s if you must.

Primanti’s is not known for pizza. The chain locations have it on the menu, but their core product is that sandwich on thick Italian bread with cole slaw and fries on top. Not everyone’s cup of tea so they expanded the menu.

Fiori’s on Capital at West Liberty Ave. is one of the oldest (and best)

I’ve had a lot of pizza in different places but I don’t like just one type of pizza though. Sometimes I like deep dish Chicago style and other times I like the greasy dripping NY style and sometimes I like a nice Sicilian style. If I had to rate fast food chain pizza I’d probably favor the Topper’s Chain for the #1 spot plus no place I’ve encountered beats their topperstix. If I stuck to just national chains that are everywhere. I’d have to give a slight edge to Pizza Hut though Papa Johns and Dominos are good on occasion. The best local pizza is a great place called Pizza Express. The pizza is real NY style and they deliver everything.

The most unique experience I’ve had at a pizza restaurant
was at the Fat Cat Pie Co in Norwalk CT. If you expect big greasy pizza you won’t like it. Its not a place for take out or delivery. Its pizza is thin and the ingredients are all organic. What I loved the most is the assortment of spices that they bring out with the pizza which allow you to make each slice a unique experience if you desire. It also has a wonderful atmosphere with an excellent bar filled with a great selection of wines and beers. It is the only “pizza” place I’d recommend for an elegant date night.

Lastly the number one discount pizza in my book is Little Caesars though Cicis is close behind.

The one in Lauderdale is known for one of the best pies in the city. The sandwiches - not so much.

Though they are now back, at one point both Dominos and Little Caesars had all but pulled out of Pittsburgh. Very hard to compete with the established old-school competitors.

“Boston has seafood, San Diego has Mexican, New York has pizza,” said Kellam, a Williamsburg resident.

*Los Angeles* has Mexican. So does Texas. So does Arizona. New Mexico has Mexican/Indian. Everywhere else, you might as well be eating Taco Bell. I saw a Mexican place in NYC regarded as 'NYC's best authentic Mexican' and it was like some kind of upscale Chevy's that served colorful margaritas.

The flour tortilla is heresy. Corn tortillas should be no larger in diameter than a baseball and made within a very short time of being served.

Sorry to hijack the thread. Someone mentioned Mexican.
