'Where Can I Get Good Pizza in Baltimore?'

Reaching in to the Slice mailbag, we've got a plaintive query from Brian M., who sends us some pics of a jumbo slice from Angelo's in Baltimore before asking for pizza recs in Charm City.

Dear Slice, Letters from Slice'rs

I was just reading your "pizza styles" section and saw the DC jumbo slice. Figured I'd send you some pics of the hugest slice I've ever seen/eaten from Angelo's Pizza in Baltimore.

I also noticed you've got no entries from the state of Maryland, and I'm not surprised. I moved down here about a year ago from Connecticut and my biggest problem down here is finding good pizza. It's terrible down here! Actually, Angelo's is pretty good (although I suggest ordering a whole pie instead of the crazy-big slice, due to the consistency of the crust and overall freshness).

I was wondering if you had any suggestions for good pizza down here. I've found a handful of places that I enjoy, it's just so crazy that they're so few and far between. I've been making pizza at home a lot more lately. I've included a picture of a homemade pizza heart that I made for my girlfriend — thought you might get a kick out of that...

------------------------------------------------------------ Dear Brian,

Thanks for the pics. I kind of think Baltimore is close enough to D.C. that the jumbo slice must have made its way to "The City That Reads."

We actually do have entries on Baltimore: https://slice.seriouseats.com/tags/Baltimore. Maybe not as many reviews as you'd like, but then ...

I know there are Baltimore-area Slice'rs out there (ahem, Pizzablogger?). I'm thinking they'll chime in here with some answers. In the meantime, here's a great place to start: http://www.pizzablogger.org/index.php/category/reviews/baltimore-city/

As for the heart-shape pizza, did your GF like it?

Hasta la pizza, Adam
