The best pizza is the one I'm about to eat at any given time. Doesn't matter if it's Connecticut pizza, Detroit pizza, a New York slice, or hell, even school cafeteria pizza. *It's pizza about to go into my mouth*

Buddy's Pizza from Detroit is #6... I had it and it was meh.

I've always liked Sam's 26th and the boardwalk Wildwood NJ.

Lorenzo and Sons 3rd and South Street Philadelphia, PA.

I actually agree with this.
My brother lives there and every time we visit, we get pizza and it is  amazing. Pizza here just seems like ketchup on stale bread when we get back home

Oh good, this article again.

So this one spot in Connecticut supposedly has the best pizza.  I can't really dispute this as I'm not going to visit Connecticut.

Notice that in the first paragraph that New York has 21 restaurants that made the list.  I would argue that the ability to find a good slice on pretty much every other block in Manhattan (not to mention the other burroughs) makes NY the pizza king.

Having one great restaurant doesn't make your entire state the champ.  Imagine if Wisconsin had one great BBQ restaurant.

Having driven on 95 through Connecticut, I can say that there is no stretch of hell in Jersey that compares.

I've it ever had two truly awful pizzas in my life.  The second-worst was at a tavern in Munich, which I ate anyway because I was that hungry.  The worst by a considerable margin was at a place in Steubenville, Ohio; bland sauce, unmelted cheese, cold pepperoni.  It was like eating a lunchable.  My girlfriend at the time (from Wheeling, WV) insisted that Ohio Valley style pizza was a thing, and boy, she wasn't wrong.  Yikes.

I think I've only twice had pizza so bad that even though I was very hungry, I couldn't choke down more than a couple bites: one was at a place near Montmartre, and the other was Imo's. Both were much, much worse than a $2 Totino's pizza.

"Which state has the best pizza?" is an implicitly different question than "Where is the highest rated pizza restaurant in the U.S. located?"

It's bullshiat "journalism" phrasing.  I'm sure the Connecticut pie is lovely and I would enjoy it though.
 
2020-11-28 10:21:49 AM  
I've had less than a handful of bad pizzas in my life, one of which was a "Seven kinds of mushrooms" pizza.  The mushroom bits were so small and sparse, you'd never have known there was even one kind.

Another was Little Caesars.*

I figure it was created when they guy cooking was pissed off and wanted to show the diner how much he hated them, and then the idiot diner thought it was great and sent all his dumbass, similarly tasteless friends back there for the "great" pizza he got.

/Jizz is probably a big part of the recipe.

I grew up around Cincinnati. I have never seen that abomination before in my life.

If someone tried to serve me that, I would promptly walk the fark right out the door.

I've been saying it for years.  New Haven (not the rest of CT) has the best pizza in the country.  It's because there was a huge immigration of Neapolitans to New Haven in the early 1900s.  New Haven has three of the best pizza places on the continent.  NY/NJ, and all of the other places Italians landed, have good-to-great pizza, too.  But New Haven just kept it a little closer to perfect.

Santarpio's in the East Boston is the best pizza I have ever had.

I've it ever had two truly awful pizzas in my life.  The second-worst was at a tavern in Munich, which I ate anyway because I was that hungry.  The worst by a considerable margin was at a place in Steubenville, Ohio; bland sauce, unmelted cheese, cold pepperoni.  It was like eating a lunchable.  My girlfriend at the time (from Wheeling, WV) insisted that Ohio Valley style pizza was a thing, and boy, she wasn't wrong.  Yikes.

I think I've only twice had pizza so bad that even though I was very hungry, I couldn't choke down more than a couple bites: one was at a place near Montmartre, and the other was Imo's. Both were much, much worse than a $2 Totino's pizza.


I eat at Imo's all the time, just not the pizza.  Their wings, roast beef au jus, garlic cheese bread and Toasted ravioli are all pretty good, and there's one 2 blocks away from me.  I've literally ordered sides from them and put a generic grocery store thin crust pizza in the oven at the same time, Provel sucks.

Even for St. Louis style, which I don't particularly like, Elicia's has way better pizza... but like, there are so many better pizza places in St. Louis.  You can get a decent Neopolitan, New York or Chicago *Deep dish and tavern style* pizza here.

I get why St. Louis style pizza took off in St. Louis in the beginning, there weren't any other types of pizza available at the time, and nobody know what the hell pizza could taste like.  But now there's competition.

Again though, their sides are good.  Imo's isn't a bad restaurant... just a bad pizzeria.
