I'm really excited about this post, and I would really appreciate your feedback, particularly if you live in the Cleveland area.
PIZZA CHALLENGE!!! I luuuuuurve pizza. Its hard to believe, but growing up in India, pizza was very difficult to find, at least until the late 80s. I was a deprived child. Needless to say, I've made up for it over the past 12 years. I'm on a mission to find the best pizza in Cleveland. N and I have tried many, many pizza places, and here's the ranking I've come up with. Keep in mind, N and I have different pizza tastes, and my ranking order has no reflection on his views (he made me write this disclaimer).
1. Sunnyside Pizza at Bar Cento
2. Panini's on W 6th (N strongly disagrees with this one)
3. Angelo's in Lakewood
4. Edison's in Tremont (they have a parmesan crust, and the pies are served with honey on the side. Sounds wierd, but trust me, its fantastic!)
5. Papa Nick's Pizza on Clifton and W 116th-ish
6. Guys Pizza
7. Alesci's downtown on Huron
8. Big Guy's Pizza
10. Rascal House
So here's where you come in. I'm looking for your opinions on the best pizza in Cleveland. Feel free to disagree with my choices; pizza is a very personal choice, and I wll not be offended if you disagree with mine : ). Please leave me your opinions even if you don't live in Cleveland; I hope to visit you soon and compare your favorites to mine.
Here are the only two criteria:
(a) The pizza place cannot be a national chain (no Donato's, Papa John's etc)
(b) Pizza must be the primary food served (so even though I enjoy Lolita's pizza, I don't consider it a "pizza place")
Let the pizza wars begin!!
