Not sure about the best but Trophy is one of my favorite spots. I only get larges, the dough is too thick on the small pizzas. My favorite is "The Most Outgoing", yum! Great beer too.

Food is so subjective, assigning a "best" label is almost meaningless unless your perspective and preferences are identical to the reviewer.

There's so much good pizza to be had down here covering an impressive spectrum of choices (e.g., traditional NY, Chicago deep dish, artisan, etc.). I could never commit to a "this is my favorite" because my tastes shift over time. Right now I'm loving Sergio's in Wakefield but also have always really liked "A Slice of NY" in Brier Creek and Mellow Mushroom (typically for a family night out and only because it's different than what we typically eat). But we'll also cobble together a pizza buffet on a football Sunday ordering from Papa Johns. Is Papa John's a favorite? No, but it's not dog food either (though my dog does love their crust).

Find what you like and enjoy it, there's no need to convince anyone else it's better than what they like.

From the looks of their menu, they don't have a gluten free option, so I'll have to stick to Patrick Jane's.

Has anyone conducted a study to explore the alarming increase in the number of celiac sufferers?

Here's what one leading researcher, Dr. Stefano Guandalini, thinks"


Do you have a theory as to why there is such an increase in celiac and gluten sensitivity?

I actually endorse one of the prevailing theories that goes back to the so-called hygiene hypothesis that because of the cleanliness of the society in which we live, that between birth and the first 18 months or so of life, our babies are not exposed to the same amount of antigenic load that mother nature expected, so not enough dirt, in other words. Everything is kept clean and has to be sterilized. We make sure our babies are not in touch with any dirt or put something dirty in their mouth.

Now the good about that is of course we have almost eliminated a number of infectious conditions that mightíve otherwise been predominant. But the bad news about this habit is that our gut immune system, which develops and directs the development of the whole immune system of the body, not being exposed to that kind of antigenic load by bacteria and other compounds that were supposed to be there, has developed in a way in which its response is skewed towards developing autoimmune and allergic diseases.

Celiac is an autoimmune condition, and it is not the only autoimmune condition that is increasing in prevalence. For instance, type 1 diabetes is following the same trend too. So I think this theory has some reason to be believed, and there are some data and epidemiological support for it. For instance, in developing countries where socioeconomic conditions donít allow for this extreme cleanliness, they almost donít know the existence of autoimmune or allergic conditions. And when the same country develops, for instance like in northern India where this has been documented, then this disease is there to strike.

First time I've ever heard anyone say that without being sarcastic.
