Okay, three questions.
1. Best pizza you've ever eaten, where was it?
2. What's the best 'style' of pizza?
3. What makes your type the best.

Happy Posting! =]

Ima start.
Best pizza I've ever eaten was in Gino's East in Chicago.
Chicago Deep Dish is the best pizza because:
-It's WAY more filling than other pizza, maybe because of all the fillings?
-It feels like you're actually eating something. When you bite into other pizza you might get a 'crunch.' Lame. When you bite into a deep-dish slice, you get an ooey-gooey chunk of awesomeness. SO much better!
-It's from chicago! =p

Complete opposite here!

I like pizza with a thin, crispy crust... lots of tomato sauce, but sparse toppings and just a light dusting of cheese (if you can't see the tomato sauce through the cheese.. too much). Topping wise I generally like genoa sausage, pineapple, bacon, and some roasted garlic.

Round here (and most places), no one makes it like that... at least not well. Best pizza I ever had was in Sweden (they have really good pizza in general... never would have guessed). I am fairly good at making it myself. I make the dough myself (using a breadmaker) and the tomato sauce myself.. then I lay it out on a pizza stone and cook it on my charcoal BBQ, which comes pretty damn close to that "brick oven" flavour.

As to why I think this is the best... dunno. I used to like lots of cheese and toppings when I was younger, then one day I didn't!

1. The best I've ever eaten was on a road trip to LA, at a small place called the Pizza Kiln in Moreno Valley, CA.
2. Not really sure.... but I guess I would say Brooklyn style
3. I love a thick crust, with a minimal amount of sauce, a Sh*t load of cheese with peperoni, sausage and pineapple.

3. It's all about the toppings.

So, lots of people like pineapple?
I'm more of a purist: Pepperoni, Sausage, (1 big patty), cheese, sauce, vegetables. NOTHING ELSE.
I don't really like to mix sweet and savory, which could explain why I don't like green peppers, either...

I don't get the pineapple thing either.
For me the only toppings I ever order are meats(sausage, bacon, and hamburger) and peppers(green, banana, and jalapeno).

The best pizza I have had was on the boardwalk at Seaside Heights, New Jersey. It was a little stand on the south end of the boardwalk. I think in part it was because of the company I was with, either my roomie from college or my parents' newspaper boy, my best friend for a while. Then there was the ocean, being in the sun and salt water all morning, walking up to the boardwalk and having fun.

In Lynchurg we have a great Italian restaurant down the street that sells New York style pizza, thin, hand tossed crust, great sauce and cheese. It's a close as I can come to being back on my beach, salt air, sun, and best friends.

I know and dig the place DB speaks of (Monte Carlo) - but I prefer this little place run by a bunch of Mexicans (and they used to have this old Chinese guy delivering for them, but he retired) down the street from me (Mario's on Bedford Ave) - they make killer NY style, and they do some white pizzas that are just out of this world.

That said, there's a brick oven place just a bit further, but still within walking distance (Rivermont Ave Pizza, used to be the basement of Trotter's) that does real hardcore traditional Italian pies in a wood-fired brick oven that just rock my socks.

As to Chicago-style - man, when I sit down to eat pizza, I don't want to be full on one slice. That's what I can't stand about Chicago deep-dish.

I might be a bit biased here, but the absolute best pizza is the Detroit style pizza. Jet's is one of the best around here, too, or Vinnies, if you're lucky enough to be ordering pizza in Romulus (or if you were lucky enough to live in Westland or Garden City when they had their second store there, like I was!)

Imagine, a square pizza, with a thicker crust, baked so that the edges are crispy, like a thin-crust, but the toppings and thickness are like a deep-dish. Plenty of toppings, sauce, and crust-That's the Detroit style pizza.

And it's fucking AMAZING! I've eaten Chicago Pizza in Chicago (Mr. X is from Chicago), and although it's good, I'd rather have a good square deep-dish from Jet's Pizza or Vinnie's any day over the best Chicago has to offer. Why? Detroit Style Pizza is just plain BETTER!

The best pizza I've ever eaten is either when I was on a holiday in Turkey, and there was a Domino's pizza place, and we ordered a basic pepperoni and cheese pizza, and I really loved it. It was the first and only time I've been to Domino's.

The other one is near where I live, it's a small place called Pyynikintorin Pikapizza (Pyynikintori's Fast Pizza). They used to sell a pizza with 2 toppings for 5 euros, and that was the cheapest in the whole city. Well I decided to try pepperoni with extra cheese, and it was one of the best pizzas I've ever eaten.

Unfortunately, they don't have that anymore, only 5 euros for a pizza with ham and pineapple, so we don't go there very often anymore...

1. Grew up in a small town with mostly local joints. There was a Dominoes for a while, and that may be my favourite chain, but best I ever had was from some place called the Wicked Wedge. Didn't even really matter, but pepperoni and mushroom as probably the best. Being a student now, gotta say Panago's good for some really super pricess. Delissio is a solid deal too.
2. I like Pepperoni straight up. Deluxe, any sort of chicken, Canadian and Meat Lovers are all good, but I'm a fan of straight up, good ol' fashioned pepperoni and cheese.
3. Dunno... probably the... pepperoni... and... cheese... I guess...

Ah Dominos Pizza... They're actually based in Ann Arbor, MI, about 45 minutes from here. The owner and founder of the company is a crazy right-wing Catholic of the same variety as Mel Gibson, the ones that even most Catholics look at and think are crazy. But, the pizza isn't bad, especially for a national chain.

Huh?
How do you fit all the toppings on a flat crust?
Chicago crust forms a doughy bowl, with everything baked inside. Do they just pile everything on top?
It sounds good, but I need to know how you eat it. I'm imagining trying to eat it with my hands, and everything sliding down, onto my shirt! =p

Yep, the toppings are on top. It's a fine act of picking up the edges and going to it. Occasionally you will have some of the cheese and toppings slide off, but it's all worth it. It is better eaten with a plate or something, though.

I grabbed these from the Jets website and the Buddy's website (two Detroit pizza chains)

1. Thin crust with light sauce, roasted garlic, basil, rosemary, and chicken at a local Italian restaurant that closed several years ago, unfortunately (the owner/chef moved back to Sicily)
2. The best type is with GOOD toppings; everything else is stage dressing, really. Doesn't matter what kind of crust or how much sauce there is if there's not for them to support and enhance
3. Complex flavor profiles and utter mouth-watering delicious . . . duh ^_^

I don't know if I like a particular style over others. I just like different pizzas from different places.

My father made a great bbq pizza with cilantro and chicken. Hand tossed crust.

I like weird crusts though... like I used to get croissant crust pizzas. Those were great. At a pizza place / bar here I get a margherita (but then I have feta cheese added to it).

I'm a fan of toppings like sliced tomatoes... feta cheese... portabello mushrooms... spinach etc. Replacing tomato sauce with pesto is also pretty good sometimes.

Well, since I work for Papa John's, and previously for Pizza Hut, you'd think I'd be biased and pick one of those. But I'm afraid not. you might as well drink vegetable oil if you go to Pizza Hut. And PJ's ain't bad but its not my favorite either.

1. I actually prefer those frozen cheap-o pizzas in the freezer isle at the local IGA. They are $2 and I like the pepperoni or the meaty varieties.

2. As for best style pizza: It depends on the mood. I like deep dish for meaty pizzas, thin for the pepperoni or six cheese, and regular for anything else.

3. Why is my choice the best? Probably becuase I was raised on food from cans, boxes, and freezers. I don't have a taste for real food.
