Well, Dominoes, Pizza Hut and Little Caesars should all close if you ask me. They make cardboards disguised as pizzas with fake cheeze , fake pepperoni, canned veggies and cooked on hot air instead of Baker's Pride slate oven.
Californians don't know pizza. It's sad. Everyone just wants two large pizzas ( large pizza has been getting smaller ) for $12.99.

Don't have them around here, but there is a place called Portafino's with 4 or 4 locations that is the absolute best in the south. One bite of the pie and you will think you are in NYC. It doesn't get much better.

Athens apparently

maybe they will get to Hamiltucky someday, even though we have some really good mom-and-pop places here. I rarely buy from the chains, but Donato's Founder's is good and Papa John's is ok.

some of the best pizza I've had was at Hound Dog's on High Street in Columbus. Ever been there?

Being from Chicago there are literally hundreds of good pizza places. There are also hundreds of bad pizza places.
Good ones include
Unos
Ginos East
Giordanos
Lou Malnatti's
Bacinos
Carmens
Homerun Inn
Nancy's

All right, all right, given my moniker, I'm sure you're all waiting for me to chime in on this very important topic. The very best pizza in the world comes from a little shop on Hudson Street in Trenton, NJ - and it's not pizza, it's tomato pie (cheese on the bottom / sauce on the top). This place doesn't serve salads, burgers, subs, cheese steaks or any of that falderal - just PIZZA! It has been in the same family for 60+ years. In fact it is so old that it predates rest room laws - and has none - so go before you go. The name of this little slice of heaven is DeLorenzo's (remember, it's the one on Hudson - not the one on Hamilton). Be prepared to wait, it only seats 60 people and there is almost always a line outside, regardless of weather. OK, that's the definitive word on pizza. I'll be glad to serve as tour guide to anyone passing through - and the pool's free at my place.

Adios,

Pizza Bob&lt;----comes by it honestly

I know that Avalanche pizza owner John Gutekanst and his crew took home the title of the Best Pizza in the USA at the world Pizza Championship in Italy!Has Delorenzo,s pizza place ever been in that Championship?Maybe they should if they have not already.Do they cook the pizza in a furnace type oven?Denotoes is good because it has a distinctive flavor to it and i like Pizza Hut but hey if its Pizza then i like it nomader where its from.Avalanche is by far the best I've tasted though.I,ve never been to Hound Dogs

Carol, it is, "So many............, so little time."
Everyone can fill in the blank for themselves. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Obviously, I wouldn't fill in the blank, the same as you. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Back when I was in the service, my ship was in Staten Island for about 2 months. We would spend our nights in Manhattan, and always stop at the South Ferry terminal and get a slice of pie before getting on the ferry. That was some of the best pizza in town as I remember.
More years ago than I care to remember.
