Pizza is not designer.  Pizza in not nouvelle or free range.  Pizza is really good bread with sauce and spices and enough cheese and goo and cut up meat and or veggies on top to sink a battleship and it is found at crummy storefront joints with old Blodgett ovens around the corner from the bodega by the used car joint.  And it is a blessing.

Sadly, 59% of the Internet is now "Best" and "Top Ten" lists.  The idea that there has to be a "best" of everything is retarded.

Are there really people who think two (or one hundred) things can't be equally great?

Anyway, Amicas Pizza and Brewery in Salida Colorado is really, really good.

Once upon a time, there was journalism and there were ads.  Now the journalism is ads for everything from what you should like to who you should vote for or why it's not a problem if the NSA knows what brand of cheese you buy.

Russo's Pizza, in Bridgewater, NJ.

Vito's in Jacksonville, Fl had good Sicilian pizza.

Currently getting pizza from Rosa's Pizza in Katy, TX.

So, what's the point of how these crappy articles are glued together?  Say it with me.  "Posssstyuuuhhhhhh, of uhTHORRRReeetehhhh!"  If you don't agree these things are better than other things, you suck because we just said so. On the internet!

all i need is sauce that isn't corn syrupy sweet, cheese that isn't the cheapest half imitation crap the place could order and i want anchovies. no anchovy places are just cheap bastards that don't want to carry a item that isn't a big profit to cost item like onions.

Zachary's Pizza in Berkeley/Oakland is pretty damn good. It's fantastic and in reality there is nothing particularly fancy or groundbreaking about it, which is part of the charm.

/please notice how I didn't say it was the best pizza ever and/or better than your favorite pizza.
 
2013-07-02 02:44:26 PM
Many more restauranteurs are able to afford clay ovens, many customers are willing to pay more for better ingredients, and many chefs are getting more creative with their pizza.

This is bad because REAL pizza is ketchup, government cheese, and rat pepperoni on a saltine just like they way we've always done it!

a new place just openned near us. it says it has 'new haven' style pizza. thinking about giving it a go but always end up at my standard pizza place. i get tired of the coal fired overpriced places. no size but 'personal' i walk out of there paying over 80 for a family of five.

I have been to both New York and Chicago and didn't find the pizza to be all that special at either.

Didn't think it would take long for the pizza snobs to show up.  I do not understand why people get so butthurt that someone decided to try something new and let others try it as well.  I'll admit the list went for the other end of snob appeal- those who think it's only worth eating if nobody else has tried it yet- but most of them sounded like they'd at least be interesting to try.

My own recommendations are Acme Pizza & Wing Company in Old Town, ME, and if you haven't been to Micucci's in Portland, ME, you are seriously missing something.  Acme gets creative; their baked potato pizza is amazing.  Micucci's, on the other hand, is crust, sauce, and cheese, and that's it.  The main difference between the two is that Acme is a pizza parlor whereas Micucci's is an Italian grocery store with a little bakery in the back.  You can call and order from Acme at any point during business hours, but at Micucci's, if you aren't there when the pizza comes out, you probably won't get any; I have never seen a Micucci's slab sit long enough to get so much as lukewarm.

In the interest of full disclosure, my two favorite pizzas are barbecue chicken and s'mores.

bunner: Rapmaster2000: Many more restauranteurs are able to afford clay ovens

Does that really make a difference?  And yeah, I can cook.


The idea is that with clay and brick the heat is radiated more evenly leading to a more evenly cooked pizza and  the high heat (temps up to 660) crisps up the outside quickly without evaporating the water from the inside leading to a much less chewy inner dough.  Alton Brown covers this pretty well in "I'm Just Here for The Food" along with some interesting techniques for building your own though, it's a lot more efficient just to go to the restaurant and buy it.

Overall, I think it's great that lower prices on equipment and higher prices consumers are willing to pay is leading to a variety of pizza ovens and techniques... not just brick or clay.

I remember when it felt like only Chicago was where pizza was treated like anything other than fast food.  Yes, NY has good pizza but IMHO it's always suffered from the idea that pizza must be cheap.  Fortunately for consumers, that idea is waning.

To me, pizza crust is something you should want to eat with nothing but rosemary, garlic and sage olive oil and a glass of white.  Frozen, prefab crusts are like eating a piece of damp cardboard, IMHO.

I remember thinking Shakey's was the most fantastic place because they had a projection TV as big as a wall (though, you could barely see it) and all the pizza, fried chicken, and spuds you could eat.  They also had Zaxxon which was tits in 1982.

The simple square deep dish is like Buddy's but obviously not quite the same quality.  Try the 8 corner - the crust is excellent for chain pizza.

Eat some for me you lucky bastard!

I had a place in the CLE  flats for a bit (before some money erased it and installed yuppie apartments) and when my Sysco guy didn't arrive one day, I went to a grocery store bakery and bought dough balls and rolled my own with some oil and herbs.  Absolutely the jazz.

I picked up some dough from a brewery this week in Hood River OR.  Double Mtn - 2$ and they'll sell you some awesome dough premixed.  I made incredible pizza Sunday night and washed it down with a half-growler of the Lulu saison I picked up there.

Lynnwood Cafe in Holbrook, MA spawned the pizza that they made at Town Spa Pizza in Stoughton, MA, which spawned this.

That, and walking into the Lynnwood is like walking back in time to the 1950s.  You'd be perfectly fine stepping up to the bar and ordering a highball or a shot-n-a-beeah
