Fancy Pizza in the French Quarter – New Orleans’ Vieux Carre Pizza

The Pizza Snob decided to close out his NOLA pizza adventure by seeing what the famed French Quarter had to offer. One of the most unique destinations in America, this historic district is home to some of the world’s finest restaurants. Amongst its many open-air, music-filled bars and cheesy souvenir shops, I spotted several pizza […]

TOPPINGS – Spider-Man Works at Joe’s Pizza

On a recent visit to see his girl in New York City, The Kid enjoyed some slices at Pizza Snob’s Five-Slice Award favorite Joe’s Pizza. He texted me to ask how in the world I missed the fact that Joe’s is the joint featured in Spider-Man 2’s famous pizza scene. To set the record straight, […]

New Orleans’ New York Pizza—Not Living Up To Its Name

As he approached his second pizza stop in The Big Easy, the Pizza Snob wondered if these NOLA places read my “Naming Your Pizza Joint” blog.

More Music City Pizza – Nashville’s Pizza Perfect Kebob

Pizza Perfect Kebob sits on Granny White Pike across from David Lipscomb University. Located since 1983 on a lone city block devoted to retail, I only recently made my first trip there. If the name surprises you, I am told that their owner is brother to Pizza Perfect’s owner who sports two Nashville locations! (I […]

More Music City Pizza – Angelo’s Picnic Pizza in Antioch, TN

My friend Frank the OT lives on the east side of Nashville near Antioch. He is a pizza lover who after reading my Nashville blog entry told me about Angelo’s Picnic Pizza. This was his go-to place along with Sal’s Pizza, and he thinks the owners of these joints are somehow related. So, on a […]

More Music City Pizza – Sal’s Pizza in Brentwood, TN

The Pizza Snob has a simple goal:  To visit and review as many of the USA’s pizza places as fast as possible.  During times of less travel, I check out Nashville area pizzerias.  Luckily for the Snob, the music industry has created a New York to Nashville axis which brings good pizza-makers to town.  I […]
