Ok, at the risk of repeating a previous post, pls humor me... pls state your fave pizza joint, name, location, I am just going to make my own list and try to pursue any that I can in the Tri-State area. Anyone in other parts of the country, pls participate, I'm sure we will get a long list from those in Italy LOL.

J, You MUST try Spumoni Gardens in Brooklyn for its Sicilian pizza. Its generally regarded as the City's best for the sqaure pie (and I don't argue that point). Its located on 27th Avenue and 86th Street in the Bensonhurst/Coney Island section of Brooklyn. Look them up online .. (CLICK HERE ) .

As a matter of fact, I'm going there next weekend.

A short distance away on Neptune Avenue and 15th Street is Totonno's, an ages old pizza joint that has the best brick oven pizza I've ever eaten.

Martio's, Nanuet, NY. He makes small brick oven pies, he makes a great regular pie, and his Sicilian is light and crispy. His pizza is all thin crust and his sauce is delicious. He also makes the best shrimp parm and manicotti I've ever had outside my mom's kitchen. They also serve home-made gelato and great Italian ices.

Full Moon, Bronx, NY. Where else but in the Arthur Avenue section of the Bronx could you get pizza this good??

I have to go with SC on the Sicilian Pizza at SPUMONI GARDENS .

For a Neapolitan Pizza, DENINIO'S on Port Richmond Ave in Staten Island may be the borough's best.

Of course the best Pizza that I've ever had was while I was in Italy. My favorite one in Italy was at a Trattoria in Palermo (which for the life of me I cannot remember the name of) that was near my hotel. They made the best pizza that I've ever had in my life.

And LOMBARDI'S in Manhattan makes one of the best brick oven Pizza in the city.

Well thats 3 for Spumoni in brooklyn, although my brooklyn "gal" raved about it too and says they just call it "LBs", in any case she says they put the sauce on top of the cheese like my aunt makes it... so I definitely have to try it out!! Maybe we can meet up in Manhattan for a slice at Lombardi's (havent been there in ages) then take the subway out to L&B for a round 2 when the weather warms up. I'm on the hunt now!

Those are some pretty mouth watering pies. I'll send SC his pirogies if you can get one of those Sicilians to me. \:D

I noticed in the picture where the patrons are lining up, the menu refers to a "tray" of pizza. In northeastern PA where I grew up, pizza was always ordered by the tray. And those of us who leave the area always have stories to tell back home about when we ordered "trays" of pizza in other areas, and were met with confused looks.

Do you guys typicaly order pizzas by the "tray?"

If I knew how to pack the stuff in dry ice, I would send you some.

We don't use the term "tray" here. Its a whole pie.

SC, doesn't L&B use the term "Full sheet and half sheet" with their Sicilian Pies?

A full sheet (12 slices) is half a pie. I'll usually just tell them "two boxes" for a whole pie (to avoid any confusion).

EDIT: Now I'm getting confused.... a full tray of their Sicilian is 24 slices (but two boxes). Thats a whole pie.

I've always used either slice or pie. I've never heard anyone use the term "tray".

Makes more sense to me to call a deep dish a pie

Funny thing, my former gfriend is from Michigan (Grand Rapids), when I was there she thought Pizza Hut and Tombstone was great pizza (and trust me, Pizza Hut is often better than some "ltalian" places around here) but then I saw this one place called "Pappa Johns" and I said sure, why not, its either pizza hut or that, so I went with it. At the time I didn't know it was a poor man's pizza hut and almost the exact identical version of Dominos, because that chain didnt hit the east coast till about a year later.

Papa John's is awful.

I got used to the midwestern style (thin crust) during my college years, and partially due to smoking those funny cigarettes without any writing on them, I thought it was great. NOw, I'm not so sure.

Chicago style (mainly deepdish) is pretty good. I'm sure Douchie could recommend some good places in the Windy City, but for my money, New York pizza is the best.

I've seen a few here and there. Maybe I'll try one this weekend. But we also have Papa Johns and Pizza Hut And East Of Chicago. I've never tried it though.
