Obviously New York and Chicago are going to be shoved down my throat, and rightfully so. But what other cities have really good pizza? Not good pizza, really good pizza.

Don't tell me San Francisco. North Beach Pizza in San Francisco had a sign from Yahoo.com saying "Congratulations, North Beach Pizza for servin' up the best pizza in San Francisco!" The pizza was absolutely disgusting and I told the waiter it was disgusting pizza and I got no apology.

List 5 cities besides NYC and Chicago that have really good pizza... Not good, really good.

Give me some Lombardi's NY style...

Every big city has someone or place who makes good pizza.

D'amico's Italian Market and Cafe has really good pizza here in Houston. I haven't been to that many places and the only city that I have had pizza in is New York City.

Several places in Kansas City have good pizza, ranging from the guy who moved here from Chicago to open up his own restaurant, to the handful of people who went to Italy for family recipes and opened up a few different restaurants based on that... lot's of Italians in that town.
I think there's a New York-style place or two there as well.

I didn't realize this until I came across this forum, but apparently there's such a thing as St. Louis-style pizza. I've been to that town on numerous occasions my whole life and didn't hear that until recently. So there's that.

Little Rock is a mainstream, boring town, with mainstream pizza, but there's a few edible places there, even. Shotgun Dan's, U.S. Pizza, Iriana's, Old World Pizza..

I had pizza at some sort of Greek restaurant in Vancouver, B.C. once. It was a very long time ago, but I remember it being very good. Supposedly, the Greeks had some sort of pizza dish before the Italians.

There's 4. The fifth could be pretty much any halfway major, and some non-major, town in America.
It's like Mexican food. People in certain parts of the country think they're the only ones with "good" examples of it, but the rest of us know better.

Is this a joke? Wilmington Delaware has more Italians than Kansas City. I doubt KC is even in the top 50.

Anyway, I'd go with the cities that actually have the most Italians: Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Boston. I wouldn't include Miami because they're probably all old and retired.

In my opinion (from the places I've actually been), Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Los Angeles have great pizza establishments.

Saying NJ is kind of cheating though as it is essentially NYC to the North and Philly in the South.
