Chain Reaction: Pizza Hut's New Ultimate Cheese Lover's Pizza

I will only have Pizza Hut if there's a real excuse. This might be it. Speaking of "too much" cheese, this is usually my reference point on that: Four Cheese Pizza at Grand Grill and Pizzeria

The United States of Pizza: Minnesota

To respond to scullness on Tumblr saying: "overlooked Dulono’s??? FAIL.":

Dulono's in Uptown is probably the second most likely pizzeria to run into a law enforcement officer. The first is Pizza Factory in North Saint Paul. In either location, I never found the pizza notable but I'd like to hear more from someone who has a better opinion.

The United States of Pizza: Minnesota

Doug- I should have included Green Mill. They're decent deep dish, but I personally haven't found deep dish in MN I thought was fantastic. There's also Tommy Chicago's in Mendota Heights as well as Aurelio's in Roseville if you're on a deep dish quest in Minnesota. (Aurelio's has the only true Chicago-style deep dish I've found in the state)

Lastly Doug, I have never heard of Bascali's. And I used to live in Saint Paul. So not only do I appreciate you've pointed it out here, I love it when I find out about new places on my home turf. (also, this has reminded me I forgot to mention Eden Pizza near Snelling and University -- I dig that little pizzeria)

The United States of Pizza: Minnesota

BlueCheezit and creamcheesepizza: Rafferty's has been in my to-do list for a couple years but I haven't made it up to Nisswa yet. I'm bumping it up in the priority list to try.

The United States of Pizza: Minnesota

I knew this would happen: the places I've missed.

Roseteng: Mesa Pizza is great. Best slice shop for the University of Minnesota IMHO. Should be included above.

Brokenbuzz: I agree with you. As you pointed out it might be the closest thing to a NYC street slice in Minnesota -- but it almost certainly is the closest thing to NYC-attitude in a pizzeria in Minnesota. :)

Cruzich: I'm adding Bill's and Basil's to my list. Thanks for the heads-up.

Wow, amazing catch.

Happy Thanksgiving, Slice'rs!

Where the turkey pizza at, yo

Daily Slice: Numero 28, East Village

I really dig No. 28. Thanks for the reminder that I need to go back.

San Francisco: Flour + Water and Lots of Toppings

Welcome to Slice, David. I just got back from a couple week pizza jaunt of SF. (My favorites this trip: Pizzeria Picco in Larkspur, Pizzaiolo in Oakland, and Delfina in the Mission -- Flour + Water was not high on my list, but maybe it was an off night.

Can't wait to hear what you think of Una Pizza when it re-opens -- it was convineiently closed for the two weeks I was there. Love to hear your take on Ragazza too -- I enjoyed the pie there.

Oh, and maybe you can resolve this at some point: Zero Zero and Picco, same ownership but the pizza is notably different. Correct? Incorrect?

Anyway, I'm excited to see more Bay Area stories here. Welcome.

Frozen Pizza: American Flatbread Revolution

By the way, on the subject of frozen pizza, I just tried the Home Run Inn personal-sized frozen microwavable pie for lunch. Horrid.

Frozen Pizza: American Flatbread Revolution

American Flatbread is my top choice as far as frozen pizza goes. I did a quickie on their Cheese and Herb pizza:

Frozen Pizza: Amy's Cheese and Pesto Pizza with Whole Wheat Crust

I've had a number of Amy's frozen pizzas, and the Cheese and Pesto ranks amongst their better. Good write-up and photos.

Chain Reaction: Red Lobster's Lobster Pizza

Did it smell like fish? I've only been to Red Lobster a few times but they have a way of even making french fries smell like fish.

Daily Slice: Pesto Grilled Pizza from North Shore Farms in Honolulu

Added this to my To-Do list in Hawaii. Looks like fun. I've been to Honolulu twice recently on business and my overall impression of pizza there is: "sucks." Can't wait to try this one.

Google's Pizza Pizza Pizza Pizza Pizza Pizza... Video

I was going to email this one to you when I saw it, but it was soooo annoying that I couldn't bring myself to share it with anyone. Well, damage's done now. Thanks a lot Ed B., now more people have to endure this pizza-saying pain.

'Music to Eat Pizza By'

I think we can all name a few shops where this record, or one very similar, is seemingly on repeat.

Where Do You Get Your Favorite Pizza?

In Minneapolis, Pizza Nea. Consistently solid Neapolitan-derivitave. Black Sheep Coal Fired and Punch Pizza a close second around here.

Ever? Maybe Una Pizza Napoletana. June 2008. A pizza I certainly remember clearly.

Nah, actually, it's the Pizza Farm (aka A to Z Produce) in Stockholm, WI. The freshest and most flavorful -- yet balanced -- pizza I've ever had in my life. Ingredients were grown and raised on the same farm, and they nail the dough so well. Oh man, so wonderful it is. Worth the trip.

Copyright Theft ... and More ... in the UK

So funny. Di Fara is soooooo much better than any variation of Famous Ray's I've been to, including the one on Prince. (original?)

How dare they advertise they cut basil with a scissors using Dom's hands!

How Not to Reheat Pizza: Desperate Hotel Room Slice Reheat

I had cold leftover pizza in a hotel in Vegas. If I would have thought of this myself, I certainly would have tried it -- although my slices were in styrofoam, not tin foil. Hum. I'll think harder next time.

Brooklyn Man Attempts to Eat Nothing But Pizza in Month of April

I did this in April 2000 as part of a contest with friends. I won. I also, to this date, have not weighed the same as I did in March 2000.

'I Ordered a Pizza from Papa John's and Asked for Extra Peppers'

That comes to $86.49, sir!

Poll: Is It Pizza If It Doesn't Have Cheese?

Even though the value of this might be that of a grain of salt, one of the three pizzas recognized by Italy's D.O.C. doesn't have cheese. So they, as a government, have already chimed in on this poll.
