Milwaukee City, thank you for sharing. Happy Easter.

Enzo's in Elkhorn it is, if anyone goes there. I have some family frim Elkhorn actually. But the only thing I can think of when I hear Elkhorn is: St. Patrick's Church, in that square.

What kind of pizza do you typically get at Enzo's?

The Pope always says "De gustubus non est disputandum," loosely translated is "You can't argue about tastes, Buddy."

I would imagine that most people's taste in pizza depends on their personal preferences in terms of ratio of crust/bread to amount of tomato sauce, cheese and additional toppings....I once stupidly ordered a pizza in LA and asked for "everything on it." What a surprise!

Italian pizza is nothing at all like American pizza.

I don't get out much since moving to WI, but around here (general area of The Dells) the several pizzas I've had are pretty generic, not a big improvement on store-bought frozen pizza...ChiTown Pizza in the Dells was easily the best, run by another Chicago refugee, but taxes & uncontrollable expenses there put them out of business a few years ago.

My personal preference in Chicagoland was Salerno's-- a couple locations in the near west 'burbs.

Not to change the subject, but I once mentioned to a friend, who ran a hot dog stand in the SW 'burbs, that you can't get a hot dog or an Italian beef anywhere else in the world like those in Chicago...He said the big meat suppliers ran tests hoping to expand sales, and they discovered that it was the water that made the difference...I always wondered if they used Lake Mich. water or Chicago River water for the tests?

If you just need a quick fix to satisfy a pizza Jones-- paint tomato sauce on half a hamburger bun, add cheese of type and amount to your liking, sprinkle on some oregano and any toppings you like and pop it in the toaster oven until the cheese melts. (microwave will leave the bread mushy.)

Buon appetito a tutti!

guidoLaMoto, Happy Easter Monday to you, paisan!

Pope Francis says that?!? LOL

In my experiences, places don't put enough tomato sauce on it, so I tend to order "a little extra tomato sauce" when I order a pizza.

I do like the Dells area, but you're right: I can't really think of any place for pizza that sticks out in my mind. Cool to know that they have/had some Chicagoans running businesses. And whenever I go there, I do strike up a lot of discussions with folks when I see them getting out/getting in a car with Illinois plates.

Now, I DO need to chastise you for naming a Chicago-area pizza place because remember, we are trying to DISprove their theory of being the one-and-onlys.

Buuuuuuuuut, since you mentioned it, I, too have had Salerno's pizza. It was on Grand Avenue, in the Barese Little Italy section of the city. I went there a couple of times with my group of friends (every summer we take 1 or 2 trips where we bring our bicycles down, and then explore the city).

It's probably for the best that I moved out of Chicago. Or I'd probably weigh 300 pounds !

Jim Mac, as much as people walk and bike in Chicago, they certainly tend to maintain good shape.

You just have to eat your pizzas, and then make sure you work out.

I had my Balistreris leftovers today at work. And when I came home, I did my pullups, pushups, etc.

Jim Mac, when you need a fix, you get your fix!

God help me, I've walked to the corner liquor store to get a pizza puff, from time to time.

Can anyone name this comedy talk show spoof from the 1990s: "Hey. I'm sick. I need help!"

I’ll have to make a stop at the Salvatore’s Monona location when I take my summer vacation to Vilas County this year.

Rocky's is a weird guilty pleasure, I guess because it reminds me of vacationing in Wisconsin in my youth I guess? Every once in a while it just hits the spot -- IF it's done right. But the last couple times I've tried it, it was borderline inedible. I guess part of their formula is to bake it to the point where the top layer of dough is still basically uncooked. Well if you don't do it just right you end up with an undercooked, gross, dough-y mess, and that's exactly what I got the last couple times I tried it.
