Best PIZZA places in the world! Still missing: your nominees...
Hungry? Tell everyone where YOU love pizza most
Where's your favorite pizza from?
When you think of GREAT PIZZA, what place, brand or location comes to YOUR mind? I won't talk much in this article, but leave the specific details up to YOU, dear HubPages readers.
In this INTERACTIVE ARTICLE, we need YOU to tell everyone else the pizza you like most.
You don't have to be a great writer, just tell us the NAME and CITY (and COUNTRY) of where you enjoy your "little slice of heaven". And, tell us WHY you love it so, with a few details of what makes that place so very cool.
IS YOUR FAVORITE PIZZA PLACE.....
...SMALL AND SIMPLE? A small, quaint, dimly-lit mom & pop establishment with cheesy, oozy pizza served on paper plates with paper napkins and a red checkered tablecloth? A place that's so small they only serve pizza there, and almost nothing else?
...LARGE AND FANCY? A large, fancy restaurant with many waiters where the place has cloth napkins, real silverware, and tons of other food?
...IN A MAJOR CITY on the ground floor of a giant skyscraper? On a main street in one of the world's largest metropolitian areas? Inside an amusement park?
...IN A SMALL VILLAGE, far from humanity, removed from the masses, on a side street with a million oak trees, where parking lot is always packed...or maybe everyone parks on the street right outside?
Pizza has a long, celebrated history with traditions that reach worldwide. In fact, pizza is so wildly popular almost everywhere that It has its own Wikipedia entry!
Have your own pizza party!
Someone has to go first
OK, OK, you twisted my arm. Although I've been all around the world and have visited 49 states, I'll kick off this giant list with two of my local faves, then the rest is up to you guys:
FAMOUS PIZZA - Bethel, Connecticut, USA. It's right in the heart of this very small suburban village, far enough away from the nearby city of Danbury to make it feel like it's a world away. The pizza is juicy, filled with flavor, and you get wrapped in the aromas the moment you open the door. Next time I go, I'll take a few pix and post them here.
PEPE'S - New Haven, Connecticut, USA. This one is known by thousands all over Southern New England. In the middle of the historic Italian district on Wooster Street in downtown New Haven, you mostly park in the street because the lots fill up fast. The place's reputation speaks for itself: most evenings there is a line of people coming right out the front door and into the street or along the sidewalk, filled with hungy patrons ready to munch.
But there are hundreds, probably thousands more places. Let's hear your opinion. ALL opinions are welcome, as long as they relate to pizza.
So, tell me how wrong I am. Add YOUR favorite places and WHY you like them so much. And hey, add a link to their web site to give'em a worldwide free plug they'll really appreciate.
Have fun and bon appetit!
