I think I see horseradish in that little crock in the background. For the record, best Beef on Weck in Western NY was at Bailo's lounge on Bailey Ave. If they're still around, I'm sure they moved out of the city.

First pizza was in 1963 in college in CT.

I was so embarrassed. A cute older guy asked me out for a pizza and coffee. I'd never had either one and had never even heard of pizza!

I did okay with the coffee but had no idea of what to get on the pizza and afterward I went home and threw up. I like pizza now but I get it plain.

Yes back in the early 50's in Chicago it was take out but I don't remember from where. I wasn't impressed. Later on when I was a teen in the late 50's my friends and I stared going to Uno's on Rush Street. Now that was pizza. Later my date and I always went to either Monastero's (heaven!) in Lincolnwood or Lou Malonatti's. Gulliver's on Howard St is good too.

Can't beat that Sicilian style pizza. Deep dish.

My first pie was in 1967 at a Me & Ed's in Long Beach, CA, the off branch of Shakey's.
I remember the pies being better back then. Shakey's still has a couple shops in Long Beach but the quality is low.
I remember buying a pepperoni pie in 1975, got home and it was a cheese and jalapeno pie - Best Pie ever!
I ordered a anchovy, jalapeno and shrimp pie in 1982 for pick up. Got there and they had no record of me calling it in - took 30 minutes more to make.

I would say one of my favorite pies was from Forge In The Forest in Carmel, CA. I ordered a crispy duck pizza with goat cheese - incredible! I ate in the patio fireside with my dog along side me, he liked the duck pie as well.

I grew up eating pizza made by my mother and grandmother... I did not have pizza made outside the home until I was a teenager. (probably did not eat in a restaurant but a few times until I was 15)

First pizza I had was at Dino's in Pasadena in the fifties. We were staying in a little motel/trailer court near Dino's and Dad loved the place.
