    The Blue Peter in SA makes some huge pizzas. They're generous with the toppings as well.

    No one around where I live! wink

    I've had ok Pizzas, but nothing phenomenal. Next time I go to NYC I will have to try it there...never have tried it in NYC and always kick myself for it.

    I make the best pizza. Try making a home made pizza and taste the difference. You can probably make it for less than a dollar.

    Biggest is not best as far as I am concerned. I prefer good dough with just enough topping instead of those monsters you get in the states.

    Lombardi's in New York City makes the BEST pizza.

    Pizza Girls in downtown West Palm Beach, in South Florida... makes the LARGEST pizzas smile

    I'm laughing at the concept of does size matter? In pizzas, I don't think it necessarily does. A basic "large" is the right size so that the dough cooks through evenly and the toppings sit nicely on top and melt evenly.

    Taste is also very individual when it comes to pizza.
    Having grown up in NY and spent my young adult years in Boston, I feel very spoiled. It's difficult to find pizza to compare to those.

    But here are some of my faves:
    In NY: John's.
    In Boston: The European in the North End and Newbury Pizza (I think that;'s the name or it could be Cosmic) on Newbury Street
    In Sacramento: Giovannis, although my Hubby and Sonny prefer Uncle Vitos.
    In SF: A Slice of NY
    In Berkeley: Blondies

    I Must do a Hub on Pizzas soon.. the key to a good pizza as Mark points out is the dough, followed closely by the sauce(s).

    Not going to make this my hub.  But as a chef, I have some amazing original recipes to share... you will see, eventually lol. 
    In the interim, maybe we might see some good deep dish hubs.

    Thanks very much for your comments so far.

    Mmmm. Pizza is the quintessential food--it has all the food groups--milk, cereal, vegetable, meat, and fat--and is a reason to live.

    My favorite pizza places are in Chicago.  However, my opinion on this is rather emotional...so I had to write a hub to capture my deeper feelings. big_smile

    I THINK.. There are 3 Kiwis in this forum that all know something that non kiwis don't know about the Pizzas that we make here.  Clearly, Kiwis Do It Better.. Ummmmmmm???

    Ask Mandybeau, where else in the world would you find an 'H' Pizza?
    I'm so pleased Eaglekiwi hasn't lost her accent: She knows that in Australia... she's making a Kiwi Pizza! (Now we know too)(Good onya m8!).

    I am a Kiwi Pizza Maker too. We have some Really Big Boys in Bumble Town - NZ.  Our local pizza man has shown us (kiwis) that you don't have to use frozen bases and be conventional (as do and are, most of the franchised chains).  His customers (as really Big Boys) often prefer to supply their own ingredients and have the Maestro create his magic with whatever the customers wish to have (or supply) as their preferred topping.

    For example:

    'Taupo Roadkill'.. A delicate (thu often pungent) mix of; possum, 'H' hog, puha, mountain oysters & mushrooms - they are just Magic!

    or a really popular pizza called:

    'Winz's Fault'.. A blend of trout, paua, wild boar, 'skunk' & semi-clad mutton; garnished with fresh pine needles, on a base of chainsaw & marmite sauce.

    How could anyone compete with such culinary delights?  What else could said on the subject?  "I Rest My Case!"

    OMG.. Sorri bout that (I should research my ingredients better!  Eagle,eagle,eagle 1000 x I will never forget.. Let me make you a pizza) -- You Can Hit Me with a Stick.. I don't mind.  Just never, never loose your accent or your humour -- OK?
