According to the pizza "experts", the best pizza comes from NY,NJ area. I have lived in that area for 60+ years and I can tell you that we also have some pretty bad pizza here. I equate good tasting pizza the same way you equate good tasting beer, it's what ever you drink and become familiar with the most that satisfies your taste buds.

There is no such thing that one pizza or one beer tastes better than all the rest. It's just what ever you are used to that tastes best to you.

As far as deep dish pizza is concerned if you can't pic up a slice and fold it in half it ain't real pizza.

I lived in Chicago in the mid 1980s and deep dish pizza is as unique to Chicago as cheesesteaks are to Philly. All you are ever going to get are approximations of the real thing in other cities. After 20+ years I have yet to find a decent deep dish pizza that compares to that in mid 80's Chicago.

I believe PDD is right on the money. I bet you could take a guy from Chicago, sit him down in NC and give him the exact same pizza he's used to, and he'd still say it doesn't taste as good. I'm sure I'd do the same if someone served me eastern NC barbecue in New York City. I suppose regional foods are "regional" for a reason.

I've had deep dish pizza from a few of the best Chicago pizza joints--Lou Malnati's, Gino's East, and a few others whose names escape me. Tastes great, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to try them. But I'm not really a deep dish fan; it has way too much bread/crust for my liking. I much prefer New York style, and I agree Mario's is the closest to NY perfection that you'll find around here.
