Grew up in Baltimore, spent three years in Philly, moved north to Harford County, and made over a hundred trips to Jersey in recent years... and I've never had a slice of pizza ANYWHERE that I'd go out of the way for. ;)

Seriously... someone from New Jersey... explain to me what the difference is? I've heard a million times... oh, you can't get pizza like we have in New Jersey ANYWHERE else. Fair enough. I've tried it there many times... and there really isn't a jaw-dropping difference to me anywhere. Some are good, some are bad. What is my pizza palette not picking up on???


Reminds me of the episode of the office when Michael goes to his "favorite" pizza place in New York City - the Sbarro in Times Sqaure.

I like Mack's Pizza on the boardwalk in Wildwood....

Sbarro pizza always tasted like pumpkin to me. I wish I knew why. I haven't had it in prob 10 yrs though. Im curious if it still tastes like that to me.

Until you've had Zios in Gaithersburg, you're just eating cardboard with ketchup. Nothing better in the entire state.

Frank's in Eldersburg is probably #2.

better yet drive to Connecticut and give her some white clam pizza from Pepe's


I grew up about 15 minutes from Pepe's. Dang, my mouth is watering just thinking about one of their pies...

White Clam? That sounds nastier that Pappa John's new crab pizza. I am not sure if seafood belongs on a pizza (anchovies included):eek:


Papa John's has a crab pizza?

I've had crab on pizza before - although I can't remember the name of the place now. If done right, it can be really good. Not sure if I'd trust Papa Johns to pull that off, but I might have to try one just out of curiosity.

A little place called McShane's in Belcamp had "crab dip pizza" on their menu for a while. Crab dip with a little shredded cheese on a pizza crust... it was pretty good. Of course, I think they removed it from their offerings... probably because it was pretty good. :)

Bertucci's Margherita neapolitan pizza is pretty good. For a standard pie in this area, it's Gil's for me.

But nothing beats a great pie from NYC. I don't know the place, but it was around La Guardia and they made 20" pies that were absolutely stunning.
