    So, where do you like to go for your cheat day pizza??

    I have a few places in mind that rank high.

    For a more mainstream type of parlor, Godfather's Pizza comes to mind. I love the hamburger flavor especially. And the crust is decently thick.

    A local Portland favorite is Pizza Schmizza. Their style is New York, giant foldable slices with a gargantuan thick crust at the end! So good!

    Also a local favorite in the suburb Beaverton is Giovanni's Pizza. They're pizza is just overall really really thick crust! It's amazing stuff!

    But I'm in Eugene most of the time these days. And none of these places are there...But! There's Track Town Pizza. And that stuff is really epic too! They put so much cheese on theirs, so it can be a bit greasier, but omigosh! Sooo good! icon_razz.gif

    I prefer a few local pizzas places, and also some of the full-menu Italian restaurants here have pizza I like, meaning it's thin-crust New York City style. I generally avoid chains, like Pizza Hut or Godfathers, although one I liked with an old-fashioned theme inside was Shakeys. I don't know if any remain anymore.

    I lost interest in Godfathers when I once tried to order an anchovy pizza. The server came back to my table and said it wasn't available. I asked why, since it was on their menu. She replied that the cook refused to make it because he hated anchovies. I never returned to that location, nor can I remember having ever gone to another Godfathers.

    But a locally-owned pizzeria elsewhere was more accommodating. Anchovies weren't on their menu at all, but as a regular customer they'd let me bring my own can and they'd make my pizza with them.

    It's only on the west coast, but I think Round Table Pizza is the best larger chain. When I go to some states, I have a hard time finding good pizza. In general I like a spicier sauce. Some places have terrible, ketchupy sauce that makes for a terrible pizza. My "cheat day" seems to be every day.

    All of you listing chain pizza places are making me cry (except pizza hut, because let's face it they have the best bread sticks known to man).

    In Philly there is this little place called "Gennaros" They make the BEST broccoli and ground beef white pizza you will ever have in your life. The prices are decent, and the rest of their food is damn good too. They even make better cheesestaks than pats and geno's

    18' Meat Lover's. I eat 3 slices and take the remaining 9 slices home. It's a bargain!

    However, when in Chicago, it's got to be Lou Malnati's "The Lou".

    I like Round Table. It's regional chain of pizza joints. Kinda pricey, but their pizza is tasty.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI may get criticized for this but I actually prefer to buy some of the frozen pizzas from the store. They are tastier and I eat it fresh from the oven and I can buy two for $10.

    The only times I prefer restaurant style pizza is if I'm going to go deep dish. But Uno's makes some amazing frozen deep dish pizzas as well. I'm actually happier with them than what I have in restaurants. And Chicago is known for some of the better pizzas in the states. California restaurants make the lousiest pizzas, the east coast also pales in comparison.

    Its because you have stated in past postings that you are an "economy ho." I know how to operate on that system.

    The place I go has a large pizza for 5 bucks. So it is kind of the same.

    Sorrento Pizzeria
    2004 Williamsbridge Road, Bronx, NY 10461-1603 (718- 828-7810)

    Their Sicilian pizza is perfect- thick crust, crisp on the bottom, yeast bread-like inside. Perfect amounts of tomato sauce and cheese so it's not fluid nor oily. I prefer it well done on top (browned). The closest I've gotten to pizza nirvana ever. Sorrento has made me rarely willing to try other pizza- why ingest all that fat and calories if it isn't worth it!

    Sal and Carmine's pizza. When I was a freshmen our dorm was very close to it, and I typically would eat it for dinner or lunch. icon_biggrin.gif

    As soon as I moved out of the dorm, I became in shape again. I wonder if that had something to do with it. icon_confused.gif
