Best Pizza by the Slice?


#21

That kind of goes for all food, yeh?


#22

Yup. I’m sorry LPM feels so strongly about certain characteristics of pizza, e.g., bready, salad, etc., so I just thought I’d counter.


#23

Unless it’s a cheeseburger. And you’re kosher.


#24

We don’t discuss politics or religon at the dinner table, dear.


#25

Obviously, you’re at the wrong table.


#26

Oh, hush you. And finish your Chinese turkey.


#27

certainly, to each is own


#28

yep, no big deal to me what others eat, just my opinion…i took 2 bites out of Abbots…no mo!


#29

it might be Wolfie, not sure


#30

Just me, but I find “hate” to be a very strong word. Despise, detest and abhor, along with famine, child abuse and Magic 8-ballism go hand in hand with hate. Not trying to stifle your passion for your passions, but I seem to antagonize your pizza pet peeves. :slight_smile:

Bulavinaka…please, your a respected veteran in these parts and nothing you say upsets me…hate, detest, despise accurately reflect my feeling about many things but i in no way am offended by yours or anyone else’s food(in this case pizza) preferences…im particularly passionate about pizza, hence, the strong language…no offense intended…by the way, i had another great pie at Gjelina tonite…no pictures/too dark…but theye really improved their crusts…my first few years eating there i often didnt even order a pizza because the crust was so disappointing…no longer the case and i happened to look in at Gjelina Take Away…looks great…their great pies by the slice though very pricey…might as well buy a pie…$5 for a plain slice…up to $8+ for a meat slice…a little crazy…their sandwiches look great!, too


#32

Thanks for the FYI @lapizzamaven. :slight_smile: Like you, I wasn’t that impressed with Gjelina’s pies early on. Good to know they’ve improved that area.


#33

yes indeed, chowseeker…3rd time in a year…excellent crusts, the key to great pies!


#34

I really enjoy the slices from slice truck great NY style slice a little bit crunchier (than true NY) but good cheese and they always top slices with fresh paremsean and basil if you ask them to


#35

OK. You still rock. :+1:


#36

I like the slices at 2 Saucy Broads in Fullerton. Also a very crisp crust with good sauce that is not too sweet (my biggest pet peeve). Bonus for good garlic knots and willingness to bring to Bootleggers.


#37

I really need to give Prime Pizza another shot. What’s the lunch special? Any particular favorites?

I really like Slicetruck, too, especially the square Grandma pizza. I know what you mean, though, about the crust on the round slices. It’s tougher than most NY-style pizza. I think it has something to do with the flour they use.


#38

Like $7 or $8 for 2 slices and a drink. Any 2 slices!!

I’ve only been once. Sicilian is a far, far cry from NYC, but slices were quite good, and large.


#39

Just tried it last night for the first time (both the regular cheese and Grandma). The slices had cooled off b/c I went to go grocery shopping for a bit b/f going home.

Thought both were quite respectable. The regular slice is paper thin. Wouldn’t support more than thin layer of toppings, I think. Found the Grandma more enjoyable just b/c there was (literally) more substance. Both had good chew. Not bad for a late-ish night snack… :slight_smile:

stopped by Prime Pizza yesterday and had 2 excellent cheese slices and a soda for $6. They’re so much better (and cheaper!) than the slices at my local, the eternally disappointing Town in Highland Park. And following it up with an espresso and a donut from Cofax is fucking killer.
