I agree 100 percent! I was born and raised in the South, and while I love Southern dishes I love a good pizza, too. Mainly New York style but I like Chicago style too. I go to the Mario's in Clemmons, just south of 421, all the time. The Venezia Italian family restaurant in Hillsdale, near Bermuda Run has pretty decent pizza, but I think Marios is a bit better.

I am continually surprised how many yankees are always on the lookout for NY or Chicago or Boston or some other cold place style food.

I suggest you immerse yourself in the local fare.

Bon Appetit!
Maybe you can help us out here by telling us where can we find good NC style pizza. Does it have grits, fried chicken, and ribs on it?

I don't know about NC-style pizza, but there's a place in Atlanta that claims to sell "Atlanta-style" pizza. I haven't had the courage yet to find out what that means. Peaches and asphalt, on a Coca-Cola crust, perhaps?

I will say it again: Because of my job, I have lived all over this wonderful country of ours.

NEVER in my life have I witnessed a group of people that LOOKED to be offended like those in NC. It's quite strange.

Thank goodness there are natives that don't have this issue. They are the ones I gravitate to

I think the biggest hurdle in getting NY-style pizza here is the difference in the water. We just can't truck the water down from NY - it's the same thing with bagels. They just cook and taste differently because of the water. I always think Mario's is about the best we can do. Welcome down south!

It is not the water. My friend makes NY style pizza in his kitchen here in NC with no problem at all!
