The best pizza for me is the one that is spicy, delicious and which is not thin. I hate pizza which is lesser the half inch in thickness.


My experience has been that
Spike's slices look better than they taste. The plain is alright and, oddly enough, has more flavor than the ones with toppings.

The best NY slice I've had in the region still has to be Valentino's. Their 20" pepperoni is my gold standard for the style.

Food as passion

Yummy looks so delicious. I just loved it. Thanks for sharing such post. Keep it up.




My friend, you just named a Chicago-style pizza place as yer favorite. I bet it's delicious, but that's not pizza. Some type of casserole perhaps. I have not tried Spike's joint yet.

Valentino's - pretty darn good.

Try Pizzaiolo on Fern St. in Alexandria. Terrible name (how do you pronounce it?), good pizza.


Thanks JD, you make a fair point. I'm sure there are just as many people, or more, out there who hate deep dish pizza. My bigger point was the seeming lack of variety we have in DC. Just yesterday, Tim Carmen at the Post wrote about another new pizzeria. What kind of pizza does Pizzeria da Marco serve? That's right, thin crust Neapolitan style. Aside from Spike's place and a few other pizza joints, like Ledo's and the national chains, it's nearly impossible to find anything other than these wan little gourmet pies in DC.


Hey take a look at the reveiws of Ed Levine's pizza book over on Amazon. Chicagoans are so sensitive! I've loved Ed since NY Eats because he has a point of view! Helps that I agree with him almost always.

Pizza are so nice to eat. Especially during snack time and family outings. I love the pizza which is thick and full of flavors that i would be really satisfied.


I grew up in Chicago and miss deep dish pizza like none other. Nice shout out to Geno's--it was always my favorite!

And I agree, DC pizza leaves much to be desired. I've recently tried Pete's Apizza of New Haven and it was pretty good, nice crispy crust, not too overly greasy, but again, more of the same.

Would love to see a deep-dish place in the area.


Pete's New Haven Apizza on Wisconsin Ave is great. Chicago pizza is not pizza. Come up with another name for it. How about Eggless Italian Quiche?
