    Having grown up in New York I wasn't too sure about the entire deep-dish or stuffed pizza concepts. To a New Yorker it seems alien. However, I decided to go to college in Chicago and quite honestly that is tough place to find a New York style pizza!

    By my sophmore year I was a stuffed pizza addict, and my pizzeria of choosing was Bacino's in Lincoln Park. There was aways a wait, but while waiting you could watch the creation of the stuffed pizzas in the open kitchen. We preferred eating upstairs, but we would settle for the basement seating (no windows, not as good people watching).

    Like all college students we went out in groups and as a result we were able to order a pretty wide variety of different pizzas with traditional toppings or, in this case stuffings, including pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, veggies and more.

    Usually we report on our pizza dining experiences around the country. We thought we'd deviate from that mission by introducing you to a really neat item that works to solve numerous pizza problems... both at home and at a pizzeria.

    The Pizza Bulter is a stainless steel pizza serving device that is shaped in the form of a "z". It allows for 1/2 of a pizza to be placed on the two horizontal axis levels of the z-shape. It is fabricated out of dishwasher safe, non rusting stainless steel.

    The Pizza Butler allows you to serve a huge pizza without jeopardizing all of your table space... it's sure nice to have room for your plate! The surface of the Pizza Butler consists of a bunch of raised bumps allowing air to flow underneath the pizza and preventing soggy crusts. There is a lip to prevent your pizza from sliding off, and it is virtually impossible to tip the Pizza Butler over.

    the Home Run Inn is a very famous Chicago pizza restaurant. Founded in 1923 the Home Run Inn didn't develop it's pizza recipe until 1947 when a man and his mother-in-law teamed up to create the pizza and recipe that is still used to this day.

    Home Run Inn's frozen pizza remains true to the original recipe with a great crust, zesty tomato sauce and a ton of cheese and toppings. Home Run Inn pizza is all natural and contains on trans fats. Unlike most frozen pizza the Home Run pizza retains it's restaurant crust taste and texture.

    How often do advertising slogans really help you understand the product that is being advertised. In the case of Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza the slogan is right on the money... in two ways.

    Anthony's slogan: "Pizza Well Done"

    First off, this is a well done pizza, if you have experienced true New York style pizza you know what I am talking about. Each pizza at Anthony's is delivered with just a bit of char on the bottom and side crust which delivers that taste of New York Pizza The char is created in Anthony's 800 degree coal burning ovens. So if you are one of those who just can't tolerate a "well done" pizza with a little char, Anthony's is not for you.

    Secondly, many believe (as I do) that Anthony's provides one of the best (if not the best) pizza in South Florida. On my many visits to Florida I used to fly into Miami International Airport, but I have since changed by strategy by flying to Ft. Lauderdale Airport and being within a mile or two of one of Anthony's locations. On the walk to the rental car I begin to salivate and know that in less than five minutes I'll be at Anthony's.

    There's something special about the pizza place you went to when you were in high school. Everyone had their favorite spot to stop at to get "a slice."

    For me it was La Scala in Commack, NY (Long Island).

    Long Island is filled with pizza places. Most of them are quite good. But the best of them find some way to stand out above the rest.

    La Scala is a pretty unassuming place, it is in a little shopping center. When you walk in the front door it is a traditional pizzeria. A counter to order at, with more people working behind the counter than can comfortably fit there, a couple of tables, a counter with a couple of stools, and lots of napkin dispensers. (They even had video games years back, but those were removed to allow for more seating I suppose). ...

    When entering Crostatas for the first time you will certainly notice the wood burning oven. It has clearly been finally crafted with old world Italian artisianship. Even better, it delivers a great pizza.

    Crostatas is located in the Cleveland suburb of Highland Hts., in a pretty non-business intersection of town. They are located in a very attractive stand alone building with another restaurant across the street, but not much else of a commercial nature very close by.

    We chose the Margherita pizza, always believing that our first visit should include the most basic (and our favorite) pizza. The pizzas at Crostatas are done in the Neopolitan thin crust style, and indeed, their thin crust was outstanding, chewy, tasty with just the right amount of charring. They say that New York pizza crust is so great because of New York water. In the case of Crostatas there is clearly nothing wrong with Ohio water.
