Alaskan style pizza?

Almost afraid to ask ... does it involve blubber?

The best pizza.

Also.... yes, Chicagoans... you make a tasty casserole, but it's not a pizza.



Best pizza I have ever had.

YMMV

Is that in Little 5 Points in Atlanta? We have a great place with the same name but the sign seems off.


That's the one.

They have multiple locations in Atlanta now, so I hear, but the one in Little 5 points is the one I went to.

True that.

Canton: Meanwhile, if you are ever in Lansing, Michigan, this would be the place for "Lansing style" pizza:

The michigan pizza to brag about would be Buddy's sir. you shut your mouth.

If I ever get to East Michigan, I shall have to try it. For now, I'm on the opposite of the state, and my experience is with mid-Michigan pizza. (Also, it's ma'am.) There is room for both Buddy's and De Luca's, I'm sure... >.>


Sorry, there isn't. I mean, there is, but not on a best of bragging rights to other states list.

And I do agree with my fellow Michigan farkers up there, Buddy's Pizza is the best Michigan Pizza there is.

The most ridiculously awesome pizza (at least that I've ever had) comes from The Pie Pizzeria (new window) in Salt Lake City.

On a personal mission to get Detroit-style pizza some respect up in here. Or, y'know, folks to recognize there's Detroit-style pizza. Which is awesome.

Actually, from a updated Wiki article:

In recent years this style of pizza has seen a growth in popularity around the United States as native Detroiters have relocated to other cities. Outside of Detroit, Detroit-Style pizza can be found in Austin, Texas at Via 313 Pizza; Telluride, Colorado at Brown Dog Pizza; Boca Raton, Florida at Grande & Augy's Pizza; Raleigh, North Carolina at Klausie's Pizza; Las Vegas, Nevada at Northside Nathan's; and at Norm's Wayside in Buffalo, Minnesota.

So, yeah, can't attest to the *quality* of any of 'em, but there's your list for non-Michiganders. Or the diaspora.

GQ's 25 best pizza places in America

3 are in Michigan, and two are Detroit-style (Niki's, Buddy's). And somewhere in Harrison Township for best veggie, which even my hailing from Harrison Township Vegetarian Roommate doesn't know. But still.

My son recently introduced me to a little place near here that does a fried calzone. It was much better than I expected.
 
2012-04-17 11:37:29 PM
I ate at that Savage in Little 5 once or twice and it seemed pretty ordinary to me. Not even as good as Mellow Mushroom. Then again most pizza tastes roughly the same to me.

Best one I ever had was in NYC but no idea where from. Some restaurant my family ate at and then brought the leftovers back from to the hotel for me. Now THAT pizza stood out

Worst I've had would be Tonys frozen pizza. Oh, actually worst was some place in Delhi, I ended up feeding it to stray dogs

I've gotten into making my own pizza lately, and honestly, it takes a lot better than 75% of what's out there. And the reason is that so many places skimp out on the sauce to save money. I use crushed canned tomatoes with some garlic and basil. It's way more flavorful than most slices.

And for those of you who are really interested, you don't need a pizza stone. I use a cast iron skillet which I preheat on the stove top with the for a few minutes with the uncooked pizza in it. I then throw it in the preheated oven. This produces the same results as the pizza stone but saves you the hour it takes to heat the stone.

To be fair I never claimed De Luca's was the best the state has to offer. How the heck would I know that? But it's the best, well, Michigan-style pizza Lansing has to offer. (Geno's is also excellent, but they go for more New York style.)

The Buddy's picture looks very good. Is that spinach there under those tomato slices? Yum...

You know, I would love to try this. Being in Phoenix, it's "NOT" all mexicans (though I have no problem wit dat.
Apparently Sheriff Joe, Russell Pierce and the old HAG we have for a governor, Jan Brewer DO).

I go to the swap meet by the airport. They have Indian Fry Bread Taco's. YUMMIES!!!

Would love to try a Pizza like that...
Like the Ponzarotta's from some place I can't remember in Waukesha. Deep fried Calzones. HEAVEN.
Jimmy's Grotto I believe was the name.

Deep fried pizza, I'd reckon. Kinda turns my stomach a bit (from sheer horror at the calories), but I bet it tastes fabulous.

Rincewind53: As a New Yorker, it pains me to say that I actually think New Haven style pizza is better than New York pizza (with the possible exception of places like Grimaldi's).


There's nothing wrong with admitting that the 2 or 3 best pizzas in New Haven are competitive with the 2 or 3 best pizzas in New York City*.

Making your own pizza is pretty awesome. I usually do half whole wheat crust, spinach, artichoke, garlic, onion, chicken, fresh mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and homemade pesto frozen from the garden and stored. Plus fresh cracked pepper, always.

But it's a production, cause if I'm gonna go through the trouble I'm gonna do it right.

And until recently I never even bothered with a cooking stone or a cast iron (although I have both now). Cookie sheet, dust with cornmeal, poke holes in the crust with a fork before piling stuff on. Not great but it worked.

We use the Lodge pizza pan, which has those same virtues, but lets us make a full-size pie.

It works, but a pizza stone or cast iron simply cooks the dough better because they get so much hotter.

Whar? Whar? Sammy's in Neenah, Chef Fresh (take home, 2 for every packer game with a case EVERY sunday) in Menasha)
Balestraries in Wauwatosa, Edwardo's in MKE, and Oregano's in Phoenix. That looks AWSOME. Also, some homemade
pizza place by Layton and Howell west and on the south side (don't know if it's still there-homemade sausage, just dripping
with cheese and sauce)

We all imprint our favorite childhood pizza place as the definition of "Pizza."

Barnaby's Family Inn in Tallahassee, FL will forever be "Pizza" to me. Crispy, heaps of cheese, cut into squares, braided crust. I only get it when I travel the 1000 miles back home, but goddamn is it worth it.

Christ, how many times do people have to explain this to the folks in foldy-flat-bread-land (NYC and Jersey). There is Chicago-style pizza, which is what Neapolitan is based on, and there is deep dish, which you sassenachs refer to as a "casserole." Two separate things. If you're going to try and assert your red-sauce pitas are pizzas, at least get your terms right.

Wiser words have never been said.

When in the Seattle area, seek out a Mod pizza for the noms. Only serves "personal" size pizzas, fresh dough and sauce in a real oven. As many toppings as you want for the same price. $6.88. Get some garlic knots while you're at it.
