Pizza Ambitions

The Freakonomics episode "The Cheeseburger Diet" has inspired me to eat pizza from a wider variety of establishments, and while I'm not as ambitious as Emily O'Mara, i.e. I haven't created a rubric to judge the pizza I eat, I do have a couple of recommendations: oddly, Shanahan's Bakery (in Milltown) makes fantastic pizza-- thin and delicious crust, sweet sauce, and just the right amount of cheese . . . and they also have lots of specialty slices; Brothers Pizza (in East Brunswick) was highly recommended by the locals, and I really liked their square cut "Grandma Style"-- which reminded me of Rhode Island pizza (no cheese) but I didn't really care for the mushroom slice-- canned mushrooms, doughy crust, and too much cheese . . . and while both of these places can certainly compete with my two mainstays, Mancini's-- which is in East Brunswick-- and Attilio's in Edison, I've yet to find pizza as good as the thin crust pie at Pete and Elda's in Neptune.

Mushrooms are terrible.

And generally speaking, the tri-staters who come south bring a loudmouthed, condescending judgment about the pizza we eat as compared to their particular pizza preference back up north that induces justifiable eye rolls among the Southerners in earshot.

i don't want to be condescending, but i think it's against the law for you to refer to the southern bread, sauce and cheese product you are discussing as "pizza."

and don't be a hypocrite, ya'll do the same thing with bbq . . .

The stuff southerners pass off as pizza is an abomination. And Dave is also right that southerners are justifiably disgusted by half-assed Yankee "bbq." Try finding any decent, quick regional food in Boston and you'll be disappointed.
