    Both Papa John's and Domino's are owned by right wing, anti-gay extremists. Every dollar spent in their establishments go to support their ultra-conservative, Republican ideology. Yes, you do vote with your dollars. They give big bucks to support the so-called president and his agenda. I will not patronize them, no matter how close to home they are.

    Finally converted family over the Papa John's. Or maybe because we only order pizza from them on Wednesday when it's Web Wednesday & pizzas are $10. They really like the new Hawaiian (Tropical Luau) pizza. It comes with green peppers & less cheese (less calories).

    Skinny pizza is the same as frozen pizza.

    I ran across 2 forums on pizza making:
    http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php, mostly about making them at home,
    http://thinktank.pmq.com/threads/wel...ontinuing.106/, mostly oriented to the pros.

    The pizza market is too crowded.

    Pizza on Maui!

    I wanted to mention Maui best pizza source, Outrigger Pizza Company. Full details can be seen here; http://www.outriggerpizzas.com

    The operation is not a sit down restaurant, rather a portable wood stove which travels to scheduled locations on a regular basis. The schedule is on their site.

    The crust is amazing. I feel it puts to shame any other crust on the island, certainly all chains! It has been my favorite after a half dozen visits, so it's not like I it has my attention because it's new. The crust is thin and crisp, the way it should be! LOL

    $10 (tax included) gets you a pizza that is ~12" in diameter. The varieties available isn't too extensive, but every one I've had was awesome. I visit them when they are in Kihei, Tuesdays and Fridays.

    I have no connection other than a big fan of quality pizza.

    I saw this thread crop up early this morning, and I was forced to fix a slice of pizza for myself. Here is how I fix single slices at home:

    I get a Safeway "Take-n-Bake" pizza -- they are cooked and refrigerated (not frozen), meant to be warmed up at home, and come in two sizes, several kinds -- cheese, pepperoni, sausage, supreme (both pepperoni and sausage), and occasionally some more exotic kinds. (If it were up to me, I'd always get sausage, but if it were up to her, my wife would always get pepperoni.)

    These are whole pizzas, but I only want to fix a slice at a time. When I get it home, I cut it up into slices, fold back the plastic wrap it comes in, sprinkle with crushed red pepper, and sometimes add shredded mozzarella or grated parmesan. I wrap it back up and keep it in the fridge.

    When I want to eat a slice, I moisten with water the bottom and top, optionally add more fillings (sliced mushrooms, ground black pepper, onions, more cheese, ...) and heat it in a 400deg toaster oven until the cheese is melted and the crust has started to brown. Moistening helps the crust be more droopy, soft, and pizza-like and less stiff, dry, and bread-like.

    Is it good? It's better than frozen pizza fixed at home. Of course, it can't compete with fresh cooked restaurant pizza. It's not bad. It's convenient.

    Saw the current pizza thread and dug this one up to bump it. Figured there had to be a best pizza thread already here.

    I'm from Chicago and I and everyone I know there prefers thin crust pizza. The "Chicago style pan pizza" as a local favorite is a tourism urban legend. Sure, if you're feeding a 9 year old's birthday party or filling a buffet for beer-drinkers, stuff 'em full of bread. But if you're enjoying dinner with your family, stick to the good stuff.

    My favorite place for pizza is in a village on the edge of the city called Elmwood Park. The restaurant is named Armands, no apostrophe.www.armandspizzeria.com/armands/armandreviews.htm Armands has been in business, at the same location longer than the 50 odd years I have been around.

    Pepperoni doesn't belong on pizza, it should be on a submarine sandwich. Italian sausage is the only meat that should be on pizza. My nephew from California went to Armands, when he was a teenager, and asked for pineapple on his pizza. He was soundly rebuked. Check the menu on the link, pineapple is not listed as a topping. You order pineapple on your pizza, you may earn a wedgie.

    I would like to try more pizza on Oahu. Magoo's sounds interesting. Did I hear it's closed? Papa John's is a joke and Pizza Hut is barely edible. Mama's in Kailua is another one that sounds interesting. My favorite so far is Round Table. Plus they have Bear's games.

    We happened to be out in Kailua on Friday and found that Bob's Pizzeria had finally opened. It is in the spot formerly occupied by Deb's Ribs & Old School Soul Food next to Braun Urgent Care Clinic and just across the road from Kalapawai Market. Boston-style which means it's all about the crust - it was perfect. The sauce could definitely use more zing, but overall a decent pie. The better half was thrilled at the possibility of ordering a pizza topped with anchovies and artichoke hearts (I managed to dissuade him on this visit). They also have calzones. BTW, if you order a slice, you get like half a pie, so you have been warned! I think the price per "slice" is about $5. The place was packed on Friday and again on Sunday when we stopped by.

    I miss the deep-dish joint that used to be around the corner from Cinerama Theater (before it became a Checkers) on Kalakaua.
    after weeks of us both trying to remember the name of the place every time we drove past kalakaua, i finally used ask.com to look up "pizza, kalakaua avenue" and discovered it was called emilio's pizza. i never had their pizza, which i know many said was cheap and amongst the best in town, but i did adore their carbonara, and it was in their restaurant that i first had escargot. unfortunately, in its latter years, whoever was in the kitchen performed very inconsistently. when it was good, it was heavenly. when it was bad...well, let's just say i was once served a carbonara with a "broken" sauce.

    another pizza joint we miss is magoo's. they had the best pepperoni in town AND they delivered to eric's place. *sigh*

    pizza hut lost both of us two years ago one night when we ordered delivery from them and it came almost two hours later. its better bites were cold and chewy; its worst had the texture of biscotti, but cheesily greasy. bleh.

    my favorite delivery pizza now is papa john's thin crust, extra sauce, pepperoni, tomato and mushroom, with anchovies (what??!! that's what bagoong is made of, so of course anchovies are scrumptious to me!) and jalapenos or banana peppers on the side. i prefer to sprinkle dried oregano, basil and garlic powder on the pizza according to my whim versus use their special seasoning or garlic sauce. sometimes, i like to pour a little balsamic dressing on the pizza, which i'm sure some find disgusting. eh, better than eating pizza with ranch dressing, which is something my ex got me doing until i came to my senses.
