Until youíve had a pizza in a sit down pizza joint in NY.....youíve never had a pizza! 2cents Having said that, my wife makes very good ones in her big old cast iron pan.

I for one cannot stand any frozen pizza, no matter how doctored up. Usually taste like dishwater to me. There are two great options in town for pizza; one place does thin, the other thicker. Much better than Domino's, Papa Johns, or Pizza-Hut. There's one place in Williamsport, PA that is an Italian owned pizza shop that serves NY style super-greasy-thin pizza. Many of times I've thought about driving the 2.5 hours up there just for a pie.

We had Dominos last night (by the time jobs were done, too late to cook).

Had a letterbox full of vouchers, and the competing pizza chains in Oz is a race to the bottom.

Hawaiian (ham and pineapple) is my son's fave, and used to be value with loads of toppings...now it's a sea of nearly molten (not browned) cheese with a few lone icebergs of flavour floating in it. We got a "New Yorker" pepperoni and sausage, and while they got the size right, similar for the toppings...was "pretty OK", but also 16 bucks.

So around thirteen bucks US, but still not a very good value although not horribly expensive with delivery.
Why didn't you just grab a couple of fresh or frozen pies on the way home and pop them in the oven?
Would have been better and cheaper.

That was pickup...

Was about 8PM when we got through doing stuff and decided not to cook.

We can tolerate Pizza Hut but it has to be a concession due to time or something forcing us to not cook.

Homemade pizza is so easy.

Betty Crocker pizza crust mix
tomato paste doctored up into pizza sauce
real cheese freshly grated
1 pound browned Italian (sage) sausage
fresh deli sliced pepperoni
chopped white onion
chopped green pepper

Roll crust to desired thickness, corn meal and cracked pepper on the pan, add crust, add sauce, add toppings and bake until golden brown.

The water in NY makes NY style pizza special tasting.

Others can come close but not exactly NY style pizza.

:sniff: yes it DOES wreck every pizza for the rest of your life...

Edit...seeing the pizza I ate in NY in 2010 made last night even more disappointing...false advertising to claim that's a "New Yorker)...

For fear of getting the thread shut down....I won't counter those that think NY pizza is the best.

The pizza that I want does not exist anymore. It came from an Italian restaurant that closed in 2002 (Dominic's). Therefore every pizza I will eat for the rest of my life will be a disappointment no matter how good it is. That said, my current pizza options are limited and not very promising. Of the three pizza places near to me, the only one I've tried lately is Marco's and it is barely adequate. I haven't had a Pisanello's pie in 10 years and never had one from Tano's. Surprisingly, my best option is to get a take-and-bake pie from the deli at Kroger's (either the Kroger brand or the Donato's brand) and doctor it up with whatever I choose to add. There is really no substitute for sinking your teeth into a pie that came out of your own oven 30 seconds ago vs one that had to travel 7 miles or more to get delivered.
