    Charlie, with all due respect you're slipping. You should know that 1/3 or more of the residents in Raleigh, NC are from the Northeast. I'd bet there some decent pizza there - just as there tends to be in so many places in the Eastern Time Zone portion of Florida (which is also overrun by Northeasterners).

    My favorite NY pizza in Florida is Tony's, in downtown Deland - just south of the Courthouse.

    I once stumbled across a wonderful little storefront pizza joint in downtown Savannah, GA, called "Mr. Pizza". The flavors and textures were "right". Heck, I knew it was gonna be a good pizza as soon as I walked in and got a whiff of the aroma. Best part was the old Italian lady who ran the place. She was sweet and motherly to the customers, then would turn around and shout abuse at the cook and the dishwasher. A meal and a floor show, what else do you need from a pizza joint?

    I hope it's still there.

    I agree that homemade is best. It takes some practice, but you get exactly what you want. I made this pepperoni, spinach and olive with mozzarella and ricotta (homemade ricotta) pizza. It looks kind of funny, but was very nice. IMG_20210313_145841 - Copy.jpg

    Boris, I am sure that there is plenty of great pizza in North Carolina of various styles that migrated from elsewhere in the country or from Italy. My point was that North Carolina does not appear to have its own identifiable style to brag about. The same is true of Florida, of course. I can get New York style, Chicago deep dish and thin crust, New Jersey style, authentic Neapolitan pizza made by folks who immigrated from Italy 3 years ago, and even Shane Rawley's special recipe from my hometown of Racine, WI, all within 10 miles of my house. No Florida-style, though.

    Oh well.

    That's not the address I ate at. In 1990 they were in a storefront in the middle of a block in the historic district.

    Yuck... those photos don't even look like pizza. They could at least learn how to slice it.

    Only if you own a pizza oven. There's a reason they use those big expensive things.

    Yup! The best tomatoes for sauce are imported Italian (canned) tomatoes.

    Or MAYBE you have no idea what the hell you're rambling on about, and other people know more than you do.

    There was a New York Water Maker a couple years ago. Don’t know if it was a scam or not.

    Charlie, North Carolina is almost like eight different states, all stuck together. I'm in the far, far west of the state and the barbecue here is more like Alabama than it is like something such as Charlotte. It is a big ole blank canvas, and everyone is invited to come and make their mark here.

    Kinda like Florida, except nice and high above Mean Sea Level! :^)

    I just have so many years of driving down from Boston to play one of several spots in the Soho region, or CBGB on the Bowery and, knowing we weren’t getting paid jack sh*#, using our drink tickets. Being very conscientious about drunk driving, we always made sure to grab a slice before heading back. It was never less than just the perfect thing at that time of night.
