Papa Del's Pizza in Champaign Illinois. They make the best sourdough pan pizza in the world. There motto, "It's Pops for pizza, or no place at all." And it's true.

Easy. Geno's Pizza, Columbus Ohio ~ 1960's - 1992. Of course, I'm baised - my Grandmother owned the place and made the pizza by hand. Mmmmmmm...

Had great pizza in NY, but the two that stick in my mind are Uno's (Ooey's) and Dewey's in Chicago.

Pizza Delight (Springfield Mall, VA)in about 1985 and before. They got caught selling cocaine in some pizza boxes. They had the best pizza turnovers. Another is Grottos in Bethany Beach DE. I also loved Godfathers pizza. Unfortunately, they aren't around Northern VA anymore.

A place in San Diego across from Cornado Island called Buster's. It's a seafood place, but their pizza was excellent. And there was some beautiful scenery. I could certainly see living in California except for their socialist laws. God Bless Texas

Big Ed's Pizza, Oak Ridge, TN. Big Ed was a Korean War Vet, USMC. Frozen Chosin. Ed passed a couple years ago. However his son David now runs the store. There are sign-in books for the military. He is normally closed on Sundays, but, when there is a match at Oak Ridge Sportsmens Assoc. He has a private party for the shooters. There are three beers on tap. Mich, Mich Lite, and Mich Dark. (I think he added another recently) When members of the USMC, or US Army Shooting teams go there, you get all you can eat/drink. And generraly all you will be asked to do is tip the server. Your money becomes "no good" when you go to pay. Lew

In Chicago for that deep dish style LOU MALNATI's !!!!!! AWESOME! Giordarno's sucked & Gino's East was very good but Lou Malnati's was the BEST! Here in Houston a local place called Star Pizza makes excellent NY style pizza.

Circle Lounge 1810 W. Lawrence Ave. Chicago, Ill. Got closed down by the police after a cop named Annerino got killed in there by an escaped con named Gus Amadeo who was later killed by Chicago Police. This was in 1951. Who says senility makes you lose your memory? marsh

Fricano's Tavern in Grand Haven, Michigan. The first place in Michigan to serve pizza. On a summer weekend night, they'll crank out 1800-2000 pies. Il migliore!!! Mangia! [url]http://www.fricanospizza.com/[/url] [img]http://www.fricanospizza.com/images/pizzapie.jpg[/img]

"Shakeys Pizza",fall of 1978, Olongapo City, outside of NAS Cubi Point RP Philippines. Best ever, about five blocks from the main gate, past the "Brown Fox", "Piso Jimmys", and the "Florida Club", among numerous other bars. Had live entertainment too........ then again maybe it was from all those San Miguels drank on the way out? Can't say no when the young ladies drag you in the bars for a brew. Naw, it was really great pizza. The good ole single days, shoot gota go , I hear the wife coming.

Giordano's and Gino's East in Chicago, IL. Also, the original Pizzeria Uno. Sorry guys--most other places are simple imitations of the Glory of Chicago Pizza. I have to admit--this city sucks for gun laws, but if I had to eat out for a couple of weeks, this would DEFINITELY be the place to be on an expense account.

Maybe we should break this down into catagories. Mass produced; I used to like Casanos a lot(In the Dayton/Springfield area) Hand crafted; Angelo's in Perry twp. Stark County is my current favorite.

No contest. Vitereli's pizza in Cherry Hill, NJ. Hands down the best pizza and Italian food.

The best ever, well, back in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. A place called Houston Pizza on Hill Ave. Bacon double cheese!! The last time I was there was last yr. A large for about $18.00 Cdn. For delivery or take away ring (306) 584 0888. The second best, well that would have to be the Caringbah Pizzahaven, near where I live in Cronulla, a southern suburb of Sydney, here in Australia. Again bacon double cheese, on pan base! For delivery or take away, ring 13 12 41 within Metro Sydney only. A large pizza for $7.45 Aust, about $3.80 US! Now thats cheap!

here I am, minding my own business, yet starving. I am waiting for the Shop Office folks to get back from some damn meeting so they can get me the data I need to crunch the daily budget numbers before I go eat- have I mentioned my job sucks? Anyway - I am too hungry (maybe too lazy?) to get any other productive work done - so I pull up this site. How dare you folks have a thread about PIZZA when I haven't had a good pizza in damn near THREE YEARS! For the record, Texas is a no pizza zone. I spent many long days in search of good pizza, always striking out. The pizza here in the ROK sucks worse. What thsi thread has made me crave oh so badly is the pizza from a little bar on the corner of, if memory serves correctly, McAree Rd and Glen Flora Ave? (Definitely McAree, I forget the other street) in Waukegan, IL. This place gets my vote for best pizza. Admittedly, I have not been to many of the other Chicagoland pizza places mentioned in this thread - they may be as good or better. I will not accept, though, that any pizza form NEW YORK CITY or elsewhere could come close to the good pizzas from the Chicago Area. Bad Pizzas around there are better than good Pizzas elsewhere. AFARRs comment about the food in the Chicago Area was right on - anybody ever been there around Independence Day for the Tast of Chicago? It's like a gun show / carnival setting for all the Cities best restaurants. You buy tickets for food and eat yourself sick. Did I mention there was plenty oif beer too? Now I am getting REALLY huungry. I really should get back to work - looks like I'm gonna hve to pull some Bradley parts out of my ass. Anybody in the Chicago Area - Drive up to Waukegan and eat some of that pizza for me. you won't regret it. Adam PS: Someone said something about Deep Dish. Real Pizza aint "deep dish." I hereby prohibit you from any future food critic threads.

Ray's famous in the village??? There are like 6 of them there. Working in Manhattan I learned two things, #1: the best pizza comes from Brooklyn, NY and #2: NEVER order pizza in Penn Station no matter how hungry you are. Denino's in SI is fu@&ing incredible as well as Totono's at Coney Island. When on Long Island check out Branchinelli's on Route 111 across from Hauppauge High School, their Sicilian is pretty damn good! Looks like I'll be taking the sector car on a short road trip for some pizza during my tour tonight....

[:)]Pizza States: NY: NYC, BROOKLYN, SI, QUEENS and the surrounding areas. (beware in Manhattan of imposters). A few upstate, too. NJ: Great pizza state! CT: Very Good pizza state. PA: Maybe in Philly... Honorable mention: Boston, Baltimore. Outposts: San Fran and Kailua, HI. All others, sorry. (please let's not embarrass ourselves by mentioning Chicago "deep-dish". It's tasty, it's just not REAL pizza.)

The Bella Capri restaurant, in Vicenza, Italy. No stateside pizza can come close to any good Italian joint. That is my final answer.

It was still there in 84. I hooked up with a waitress from there for a couple of months while I was deployed there from Iwakuni, Japan. She lived on base with her sister who was married to a SEABEE. She was an 18 year old pretty little thing. The pizza was O.K. something not right about the sauce. The "service" was excellent [;)]

Cosmos Restaurant, Winnipeg, Manitoba. It's a Greek owned place, as most restaurants in Winnipeg are. Damn, its good. They use some sort of real heavy cheese, it's about a half inch think, with I think, Olive Oil. Oooh, haven't been to Winnipeg in 8 years, think I need to go.

I've lived on pizza - cold Domino's and warm Coca-cola for breakfast ring any bells? I've been to Chicago once on a layover, so I tried an Uno's pizza - good, but not great IMO. For national chain stores Godfather's was definitely my favorite, but they're hard to find around here. The last one closed years ago. There is a local chain here called Picurro's that kicks a$$. I can't bring myself to order delivery anymore after eating their pizza. Guess where I'm going for lunch today?

The Louisiana Pizza Kitchen in the Quarter. Dripping with the House herbed olive oil. Mmmmmm...
