And that is without toppings.

The sentence of the day comes from the current (May) issue of Wired.

"It costs $482.79 to get a decent pizza in San Francisco - $17 for the pie, $85 for cab fare, and $378.80 for the flight to New York. Throw in $1.99 for tinfoil."

I gotta say, I've had some bad luck with pizza in NY. The only decent pizza I've had was with you that one time. All the others were very subpar- perhaps because when I looked at who was making the pizza there wasn't a single Italian to be found!!

Now in Jersey...we've got some fine pizza.

But that's an otherwise awesome quote.

Can also apply to bagels.

I would wonder how much it is to get good pizza in North Carolina but I so rarely eat pizza.

Know how much it costs to get good Chinese in North Carolina instead?

Ah, and they are so profoundly wrong.

All one must do is go to Hayes Valley and visit Patxi's for excellent pizza. Alternately, one can spend $2.90 for a BART ticket to Oakland and then walk a block to Zachary's. They both sell fabulous Chicago-style pizza.

I think the article is referring to NY style pizza.

I'll have to check those places out. Noah is extremely devoted to Chicago style pizza.

I had not known that I had never had pizza until Mike and I got together.

Here in Atlanta, there's Papa John's, Domino's, and Pizza Hut. There is nothing else.



Until I started dating a New Yorker and he took me to a New York pizza place. And though he said it wasn't nearly as good as the pizza back home, holy crap, was I hooked.

I will never eat anything other than New York pizza again.

It's the water. When my sister visits from NC she takes a couple of gallons of NY water back home with her to cook with. She says it makes all the differnce.

You'd really have to fly to Naples if you want the best pizza.
In Houston, we've got Star Pizza for Chicago style, a new fancy ass wood oven pizza place called Dolce Vita, and it's pretty good. But every bite is just half as good as the best pizza in the world, and that's from Italy. Fresh cheeses and the best tomatoes and a thin crust with the perfect texture. Like New Yorkers say - you don't know from pizza until you've tried it.

So what happened on my New York trip? Hunh? Hunh? :P *sigh* I guess I will never believe in the glory of New York pizza.

Ok, I lol'd, but I'd have to substitute Chicago for New York.

I love New York, but the only good thing about the pizza is how abundant it is, and it's available at *any* hour (cheap).

Besides, there are better reasons to go to New York.
