California style pizza is quite good w/ more creativity of toppings than one normally finds elsewhere in the U.S. Generally more vegetables & thinner crust but also different cheeses & tasty toppings like chicken or lamb & fruit are served in pizza parlors in Los Angeles & elsewhere in California.

IMO, "California Style Pizza" is an insult to the word Pizza.

Hartford and New Haven also have excellent pizza, especially New Haven which is noted for Pepe's and Sally's.

Joke? No. I couldn't care less if it's in the top 50 or not... Fact is, KC does have a lot of Italians. Anyone who thinks otherwise has obviously never spent much time there, and knows nothing about the town.
There once was a very large section of the city that was primarily Italian... complete with the mob. Most of them have moved to the suburbs.
There's a slew of great Italian restaurants around the area.

Actually what I said is a fact. Unless you want to redefine the word "small" to mean "large."

You don't care that KC is not even in the top 50 cities in the U.S. for Italian population and yet you continue to say that the city has a large Italian population? (Especially considering that KC is not small, with about 2 million in the metro.) Most of them have moved to the suburbs?...well, the statistics that I'm using are of the whole metropolitan area, and guess what...the metropolitan region has a very small Italian population.

Here are the areas with large Italian populations: (1) New York City ; (2) Philadelphia; (3) Chicago; (4) Boston; (5) Pittsburgh; (6) Miami; (7) Los Angeles. Let's see now...(49) Lawrence, MA; (50) Wilmington, DE ....still no Kansas City...well I'm glad a local corrected the U.S. Census Bureau's statistics for me.

The statistics are plain enough to anyone who looks at them (so go to the National Italian American Foundation website)...so no, I don't actually have to go to KC to know that the city doesn't have a lot of Italians. Period.

I still don't care one way or the other how many Italians live there.That doesn't stop the ones that live in KC from having a whole lot of Italian influence in the area, even though their numbers may not be as great as they once were.

I never, ever said that KC was in the top 50, or anything else for that matter. Just that there are a good number of them there, and there's lots of good food because of it.
