Ange's is thin crust, I believe Jets has both thin and thick crust.

Thanks again!

He's going to be there for some time, so we'll hopefully get a few visits in. Have to try the Schmidt Haus, the Thorton Burgers, but always need a good pizza place.

So if you don't mind, can you name the place and the style?

Thanks

Im a New Yorker who moved here 1 year ago, a Bronxite and pizza fanatic. Tell him to get used to missing pizza. I have tried maybe 14 places. The closest is Jets Pizza (3 locations) specifically their "New York Bold Fold" or something like that, not too bad, closest thing to home. Also whereever you get pizza tell them not to slice it. They cut it up like a tic-tac-toe board and you have little squares that are hard to eat and the cheese falls off and your hands get sauce all over them. I dont get it. They are like little brownies, I call them reddies. Whatever you do, dont go to Rubinos in Bexley, oh my god, worst pizza ever, I got in and it looked like a New York style place, I thought finally, Ive heard good things. Then got their ketchup on a matzoh and couldnt eat it. Oh and the pizza is much more expensive here. Everything in NY is more expensive but for some reason pizza is like 3x as much here and no place has slices. If you want a "slice" the best you can do is a small 7" pie and wait 20 minutes.

oh oh.

When we moved to Bama we got lucky and a pizza genius from Bethel,CT moved into the area. We had a great pizza place, but it was pricey.

Then last June a Italian/Turkish family from Chicopee, MA moved into town and brought in low cost awesome pizza. For $10 you could get a 1-topping large and a 2-liter. Excellent sauce.

I may have to tell him that Cbus needs a pizza place.

That little square thing, I've experienced on trips to St Louis, and on a trip to Cbus in 2007. Cracker thin crust. Not for me.

Back in 1999 we were in Columbus for a game at Crew Stadium vs Bayer Leverkusen. We stayed at some nice hotel downtown, and I am pretty sure we found a pretty decent pizza place. It was cut like a real pizza place. Big glass windows in front. We were walking in as four of the Bayer player were walking out. I seem to remember it was near some sort of audatoreum.

Columbus is horrible for pizza, they cut it into squares, who does that? Anyhow, the best I've had in C-bus is at the north market, Sarafino's. If you're clear up north near Polaris, go to Tarranto's. Donato's is terrible.

We'll be near the Josephinum College, 7000 block of North High Street.

Yeah, the square cutting is weird, St Louis style.

We'll arrive on Friday afternoon, evening- so probably get a pizza. Save Schmidt's for Saturday, catch a Crew game and then see what we can find on Sunday.

Conversely, I've never had a traditional New York style wedge pizza that I liked. Too doughy and not enough toppings. And I love Donatos. Best chain pizza place IMO. The Works pizza is delicious.

I guess it just depends on where you come from.

Always based on experience.

I'm originally from New Orleans, and the food down there is pretty good. We had some New Yorkers and a guy from CT open up two different places and they were both fantastic.

Then a few trips to Europe and we had some fantastic pizza all over the place.

Then moved to Connecticut, and between the New Haven and New York style, we were in a slice of heaven.

So all that has definitely changed my tastes.

I think the only thick crust pizza that I had that I really liked was down on the San Antonio Riverwalk.

However, it didn't like me. lol
