In the olden days, I drove by the place a lot, liked the sign, planned to go in, but never did.
White pizza (or pizza bianco) may be many things but it ISN'T pizza. I think George will back me up on this one.While I wouldn't call Joe's Pizza in Greenwich Village the best, they do a nice slice and I'd definitely eat there if I was in the Village and felt like pizza (and, as you know, Jackie never doesn't feel like pizza).A lot of their choices might be good but are a little to 'nouvelle' for me. (A fried egg on a pizza is an abomination.) Pizza should be traditional, within certain limits.And keep off my lawn!
Bud, you missed out on a treat.Jeff, I agree with you about pizza being traditional. I like the old standard toppings.
Not heard of the one for Oregon, but it doesn't look traditional unless you like a lot of crust and a few toppings. Still it said they had lots of choices. If I was ever in NE and saw it I'd stop in. We are completely happy with Papa Murphy's take-and-bake pizza.
I have to disagree with the two states I know something about. In Illinois (Chicago is the only place to go for pizza in Illinois, although there are, I have heard, a couple of decent places in Urbana and Champaign), I think Edwardo's is the best. But you have to like stuffed pizza. And in Indiana, I'd pick Jockamo's, a three-location chain in Indianapolis. Although I admit that I have not had the one listed in the story.
I don't think I'm driving six hours to Bossier City to get the best pizza in Louisiana. We have a nice chain on the Northshore called Italian Pie. I love their all-veggie pizza (I find meat on pizza to be too salty)--and their Mediterranean dressing (which includes sundried tomatoes, Parmesan, bread crumbs, and garlic) is fabulous.
