    I had a friend when I was a kid (in the 1970's), his Dad owned a pizzeria in NY. That guy claimed if a pizza is really greasy (meaning just a regular pizza, no meat toppings, just sauce and cheese), it means they use very inexpensive, poor quality cheese. Makes sense, you can buy a ton of that stuff in bulk and increases the profit margin.

    I also agree about the pepperoni, the best pepperoni was the ones that crisped up and curled into little cups. And the grease that came from that was acceptable, because good pepperoni when cooked is always greasy.

    I have to agree with @BaconGrundleCandy about Umberto's on Salem St in Boston's North End. It's damn good. But if you want to see rude servers go to Santarpios.

    As for @QuantumMechanic getting oily pizza, I hear that it's the cheese.

    Sorry @Triumph but the Kowloon is horrible these days. The only thing I would get there now is the Thai food, but I wouldn't go there for it.

    My favorite of all is a thin crust pizza with as little crust as possible. The ones I like best are at Artu in the North End.
    1 - Shrimp Scampi (drooling just thinking about it)
    2 - Fico (prosciutto, gorgonzola and marscapone cheeses and fig jam)
    3 - Margherita (mozzarella, tomato sauce and basil)

    I was joking about the Kowloon.The happy ending has another meaning.

    There was a great place for Chinese in Bilerica. Not sure if its still there but people would flock there from far and wide.

    Learned to ask the locals which street vendor or nook restaurant is best. Often they are off of the tourist map and tucked in some alley but have great food at cheap prices.

    But I did get burned a couple of times. Once in Jakarta I must have set a word bowel movement record.

    I make my own pizza all the time using Joseph's brand flax/oat bran/whole wheat lavash bread as crust. It's perfect. I use Market Basket house brand canned pizza sauce (essential ingredient is olive oil) and whatever t0ppings suit my fancy at the moment. Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes. I make it at least once a week. Tonight's was topped with ground beef, marinated artichoke hearts and shredded Italian cheese (three-cheese blend). Serve with an ice-cold brew.

    Dude. You cannot post that shyt and not attach an invitation. Otherwise you're just a freaking pizza hog. "I've got homemade pizza and you don't....." WTF?

    I just microwaved a bucket of mashed potatoes for God's sake. Have some courtesy.

    Cristys at Salisbury beach: notably sweet sauce, thin crispy crust, square, simple approach to toppings. I believe it's base is a hybrid Greek-New York(?) style.
    Been some years since I last had a slice but I assume it hasn't changed much.

    Making homemade pizzas is always a good family activity with the kids.

    Mrs RW gets the fresh dough from Wegmans. It's outstanding.

    On mine I'll drizzle olive oil on the dough, spread it around and add either Montreal Steak or Chicken seasoning before the sauce.

    I'll do a chicken, pesto roasted garlic white pizza and spend the night on the couch:p

    Man, the Salisbury beach pizza... an acquired taste I guess. I thought it was an abomination, or at best, something a three year old might be served. Super sweet. But I hear people love it.

    The real poll question should be NY Pizza vs Italian Pizza...

    You're spot on. I'd been going to Salisbury when it had carnival rides (the zipper!) and eating Cristys since, I believe, about 1980. Fast forward nearly 20 years, late 90s) and I brought an SO with me on a family visit. Stopped in Salisbury (surprise! no more rides) and we had some Cristys. It wasn't a hit with her whatsoever, I still loved it.

    Then again she is a native Californian. Their idea of good pizza was Straw Hat :).

    Looks like im in the vast minority. I get massive cravings for deep dish all the time, usually visit chi town once a year (live in pa so im abt halfway between both, had plenty of each) . It may be an aquired taste bc i wasnt too crazy about deep dish the first few times i had it. theyre kind of luck comparing apples to oranges too

    Not Even Close! Chicago style is way different than NY. Bronx & Brooklyn are Real Italian Pizzarias and blows all away.

    Where does Sicilian fit in?
    I voted Chicago only cause I'm not crazy about really thin pizza.

    I grew up eating Caserta Pizza on Federal Hill in Providence.

    I also think that a lot of people are just assuming deep dish pizzas around the country and equating them to true Chicago pizza. I’m actually talking about pizza in Chicago and pizza in NY. I prefer the former as well.

    Hey Vegas guy, if you grew up eating Caserta's you know about the other Italian bakeries in Johnston and Cranston that make/made dynamite tomato pie...like D. Palmieri's and Solitro's on Cranston St...and Tommy's Grilled Pizza is still open on the Hill

    Folks probably assumed you meant Chicago style pizza vs. NY style pizza, since there probably isn't a person alive who's has eaten a sample size large enough in either city to form any type of informed opinion on the matter. Perhaps if you chose two cities that didn't each have thousands of places that serve pizza, an intelligent discussion on the matter could be had.
