I continue to find it disheartening that I am unable to find pizza out east that I really like. I mean, besides the Papa John's and Pizza Huts which you know are standard. It's really been quite a challenge to find a good pizza joint after having grown up with such exquisite pizza fare in the midwest ;-)
Truly, I think it has to do with how pizza places out here don't sell ONLY pizza. All the pizza places are pretty much full-menu restaurants. Steaks (short for cheesesteaks), wings, salads, hoagies. How can they possibly perfect their pizza when there's so much other food to think about, too.
Seems to me that the people out east don't know what they're missing when it comes to pizza.
I'm excited for the inception of a Ci-Ci's Pizza Buffet http://www.cicispizza.com/Default_flash.asp in Lancaster. It'll still be nearly an hour and a half drive, but better than the drive I'd have to take now to get to the closest one, which is in Baltimore.
If I ever do find the prized pizza, you'll be the first to know.
