I Love Anchovies...

pepperoni and mushrooms on my pizza. Of course, I took a liking to deep dish Chicago style when I moved there, but nothing can truly compare to a big slice of Ray's, Grimaldi's, Lombardi's, Totonno's or pizza from any of the 3,000+ NY pizzerias.

Even though I am relatively new to D.C. I still can't believe I have yet to taste one decent pizza pie here. Can anyone PLEASE make a recommendation besides Domino's, Papa John, or Pizza Hut?

I recommend Ethiopian Food. Forget pizza, it just isn't happening.

I haven't been in awhile, but I like Bugsy's in Old Town Alexandria. Good place to watch a game as well.

My favorite pizza is up near where Sam lives: King of Pizza in Cherry Hill, NJ. Probably like NY pizza (I have never had): thin crust & good and so greasy you wouldn't want to drop a match on it. But it tastes good.

This will sound frou-frou, but I'm a girl and it happens. My favorite pizza is the Tri-coloure from California Pizza Kitchen. It's really good greens with shaved parmesan and a light balsamic viniagrette over a crispy thin crust.

As to Alito's choice of Ethiopian, he is not one of us. Never rely on a conservative's choice of food. Since they don't understand a woman's right to choose, they have no concept of choice.

I'm sorry to inform you but there are no good pizza places in DC. If you can find an Argentine restaurant, see if they have pizza and you may get lucky.

The best pizza in the world is in Buenos Aires in any restaurant.
And you can enjoy the scenery of beautiful women while you dine.
And personally speaking, the men are fine as well. Most of them are taller than soccer players.
La pizza de Buenos Aires - muy rica!

Mr. Fitzgerald,

There isn't a good pizza joint in the DC area. Sbarro's in Union Station has very greasy pizza. Well there is one place that is half way descent for pizza in the DC/MD area is Three Brothers Italian restaurant. I am not sure if there is one in downtown DC or VA. However, there are plenty of Three Brothers restaurants in Maryland. My dad knows the owners of this restaurant.

Good Luck

I was in Chicago last year on a business trip. Chicago has the greatest pizza next to my mom's homemade pizza of course. DC/MD has nothing on Chicago pizza.

Well Fitzie,

If you can get up to about 5th and H, NE, Citipizza is pretty good place owned by some guys who used to have a copy of the Koran in the window. I'm sure you'll be very much at ease there. Of course they also deliver.

Sorry about the earlier typo, whereupon the deletion happened.

Make your own pizza! The best way is to use unbleached or health food whole wheat flour, and a little gluten flour with yeast. One helpful idea is to put the gluten flour in a blender with yeast and water then kneed the mixture with the other flour. Provide your own cheese, sauce, and toppings. Modify the recipe for gluten flour and other things above if you like. Test your results.
