We've found a few good places near Canton. There's Touch of Italy on Old Hwy 5 at the intersection of E Cherokee Drive (in the Publix shopping center), and a place in Woodstock called Decio's. They used to be on Eagle Drive, but I think they just moved over by the Kroger shopping center on Towne Lake. Both make good pies that are about as close to what we left behind in NJ as we've found so far down here.

Well, this isn't exactly a quick trip from Canton, but it's sorta-kinda on the same side of the metro at least...

Cangelosi's Pizza is only a couple of months old and is in Powder Springs. The owner and the cook are both native New Yorkers, and while my experience level in NYC isn't exactly extensive, I can at least say it's "damn good" pizza. They have other stuff on the menu like pastas and a few sandwiches, but I usually stick with the pizza.

It's a small hole-in-the-wall place in a small new shopping center right in Powder Springs on Richard Sailor's Parkway, next to the Autozone, near the intersection of New Macland (in front of the Powder Springs Home Depot). They've been pretty well received in this area, and some nights are pretty busy, filling up the small seating area they have, so they just rented out the retail space next door to them as they're going to expand their dining room (I think it'll be ready in mid to late July).

Here's their web site: Cangelosi Pizza

I'm a native NYer who grew up on Pizza and lived in an Italian neighborhood in Queens growing up. Here is a pizza place we found near our house that has pretty close to what I used to get as a kid in NYC. We like it a lot.

Wolfie's NY Style Pizza
1200 Barrett Pky Nw, Ste 6, Kennesaw, GA 30144

Ok, I went there a few days ago and I guess this will have to be one of those places where folks have to make their own impressions. I didn't like Wolfie's.

I've always associated New York pizza by the slice as LARGE slices of pizza, with thin crust (unless you order it otherwise or sicillian style). I went to Wolfie's and we all got slices and these were SMALL (as in, the size of frozen pizzas you buy to make at home), and the crust was thicker and drier. Service was ok (though not exactly friendly). At least they had root beer.

I like the seating at Wolfie's (booths, darker) better than the place I suggested which has more of a generic cafe feeling, but food wise, Cangelosi's I think has better pizza. Just my opinion. ;-)

St. Angelo's in Smyrna has great NY style pizza. It's off of Atlanta Rd. ITP.

We've only done take out or delivery by the pie, so I can't give an opinion on the eat in service or the size of slices they sell. In fact, I've never set foot in the place.

The pies we've gotten were all the typical thin slice with the typical NYC type crust. We think the authenticity is there. Sorry to hear you didn't like it (cool that you actually went and tried it though), but ...different strokes for different folks.

OK...I know it has been franchised out to all the burbs...I LOVE Johnny's NY style pizza. The slices are big and its quality seems consistent. I used to go the Johnny's in sandy springs, before it became franchised. Even when I come back to visit, I still go back, and it is as good as I remember it.

Ehhh- Johnny's is "OK"- we actually had it for dinner last night because I was too lazy to drive the extra 5 miles to Touch of Italy. IMO, they lay the sauce and cheese on too thick, and the dough is way too puffy. If you ask for "light sauce" (and they listen) it's tolerable, but there's definitely better pies out there.

gotta agree with Bob, we gave Johnnys, Frankies and Decios several chances and it was never consistent.
Without driving a hundred miles, A taste of Italy is definately the one in Cherokee County.
