Famous Pizza & Beer—Having a Slice in Sedona, Arizona

My whimsical idea of eating “snack bar pizza” at the Grand Canyon like I did a few years ago at the ruins in Pompeii, never happened. My pizza expectations at our next Arizona travel stop, Sedona, were equally as non-existent as they were at the Canyon. Being sort of a “foodie” town, I did spot […]

Famous Joe’s of the Village–Now Joe’s Pizza of Park Slope

If it weren’t for the recent news of the latest New York City Pizza War, I may have never gotten to visit what is now called Joe’s Pizza of Park Slope. Following similar battles involving the names Patsy and Ray, this one was about the use of the name Joe’s in Brooklyn by the guy […]

The Vic in Bayonne NJ—The Big Apple Pizza Finds a New Home

Since I spend a lot of my pizza time in my hometown of Bayonne, NJ, I closed out 2017 with a recap of the Peninsula City’s year in pizza. As fast as you can say Mozzarella, I was bombarded by the Bayonneites on Facebook with the fact that I left out the reemergence of The […]

On the advice of my smart “Sis-in-Law,” together with her and Mrs. Pie, we visited a […]

Slice Works—Somewhat Disappointing Slice in Denver

It was approaching the time when I needed to head to the airport to wing it back home to Tennessee. But, there was still time for one more slice. Continuing to press my luck with the so far successful Thrillist list, I walked over to the Slice Works on 17th Street in LoDo, in the […]

Two-Fisted Mario’s Pizza—Denver Bar Makes Some Fantastic Pizza

My last pizza day in Denver was a downtown jaunt during the Monday lunch hour. Walking along the city streets on a gorgeous spring day, my first target (another from the Thrillist list) was the oddly-named Two-Fisted Mario’s Pizza. On the bottom floor of what looks to be a renovated old warehouse building in LoDo, […]

Fat Sully’s New York Pizza—The Snob’s Favorite Denver Slice

You could imagine my surprise when my Sunday breakfast meeting with a Denver-based friend took me to the delicious Denver Biscuit Company. Located inside a large corner space on Colfax called the Atomic Cowboy, this beer joint houses a two-business collective that also includes Fat Sully’s New York Pizza, another pizza place on my Thrillist […]
