Portland, Oregon: Apizza Scholls

I haven't been to Scholls, but I hear it's great.

When we need pizza, we order from Stark Naked Pizza. It's damn good, and I'm a pizza snob of the highest degree.

... also in Portland, OR.

Seriously the pizza is religious. If you don't wanna wait an hour, get there at opening (around 5PM). They run out of dough every night, sometimes very early, so yeah, we always go around opening. Hollis proposed to me there with "MARRY ME?" in fresh basil on the Margherita pizza.

Papa John's is nasty. The sauce tastes like it's 50% corn syrup.

I too worked at a pizza place during the Super Bowl when it was at Stanford in '85. It was fucking hectic. We ended up just taking the phones off the hook.

I don't think the Tampa Bay area has a good pizza either, but hopefully I am wrong. They have a fancy schmancy Italian restaurant in St. Pete that has wood oven pizzas so that might have to do. I am spoilt.

I havent had it but my brother says that Donnie Bruscos (sp??) is pretty good. I think its a chain of "new york style" pizza. I think its in the suburbs, Cordova or somewhere. I personally think that the Brooklyn Bridge has the best pizza in town. For those that dont know where that is, its in a cluster of stuff at the corner of Kirby Pkwy. and Poplar just north of Poplar. The buildings sort of have a "new orleans" look to them worught iron etc.. Its a little pricy but I swear they have a pizza that has italian spinach and ricotta cheese on it thats damn good. Call one in and go pick it up...good stuff!! Not greasy and the crust is awesome.

The less said about Bay Area pizza in general, the better. However, for "regular" pizza, Arinell is quite good. Also, for deep dish/Chicago style pizza, the pies at Zachary's in Rockridge and Chicago Pizza in Berkeley are actually pretty freaking awesome and better than a couple of places I've tried in Chicago.

Its Johnny Bruscos and they're pretty good. I had Milanos once, also pretty good but expensive. I think that there are a couple of locations around town. Lots of my old friends swore by Broadway... I dunno I had it once and I didn't think it was that great AND I was stoned so I'm guessing not so much. While in Chicago we got pizza but the guys the other band were staying with gave us what I believe to be a subpar recommendation. They said deepdish was overrated and we had a pretty good albeit pretty normal pizza at some forgettable eatery. Then my buddy goes two weeks later and comes back just raving about the deep dish pizza he had. At least I got to go to the Weiner Circle! Although I must say that their cheese fries were fucking terrible. Back to the topic, I think I need to go this Brooklyn Bridge place. And I never made it to Pie in the Sky. Was/ is it any good? Didn't it close down?

Fiery, I've heard good things about Apizza Scholls too, but the few times I have tried to go there they have been out of pizza already, so I'll take your word for it, but at this point as I don't live near it I've pretty much given up on ever eating there.

I used to go to Pizza Pop too, but I haven't been to bay area in so long that I can't remember if I thought it was any good or not.

Like I said, you must go around opening to be absolutely sure to get it, unfortunately, but fortunately too...don't completely blow it off. I think we may end up getting the clam pizza next time (Hollis bday).

It IS fucking nasty. That, Coletta's and Broadway too. I like Memphis Pizza Cafe and Fino's. Fino's also keeps some frozen ones that you can buy. The sausage is good. My favorite pizza ever is Waldo Pizza in KC, MO. I think there's provolone in the cheese mix--that's the secret to good pizza if you ask me. Fino's has it too.

I grew up on the BBQ pizza at Broadway so I still crave that sometimes...I think its canned Q though really sweet. I think Colettas is way overated. Cool "out of the way" place I guess but there food is pretty gross. That BBQ pizza they have is kinda tasteless and the pile sliced banana peppers all over it. I like sliced banana peppers but not all over a BBQ pizza. Colettas is also dirty as shit so theres no tellin what your takin down.

Fiery, if for some reason your north enough to make it to New Haven, CT- go to Pepe's Pizzeria and get the white pie. Absolutely the best pizza I've ever eaten anywhere. Grimaldi's in Brooklyn is up there, too. Haven't been able to get to Apizza yet, but I wanna and have no doubts about what they're serving.

I also like Pizza A Go Go for close-in "normal" style pies.

Memphis does have some nasty pizza, but Johnny Brusco's, and Fire & Stone are both pretty good. The thin crust at Jimmy's Hot Dogs in Bartlett is excellent (the thick crust is too bready for my tastes). Ciao Bella isn't bad either.

okay we already been through this a hundred times but we all know what a repetitive bore fiery is so i'll humor her (how are those polks holdin up???). the best pizza is in new haven at pepe's an solly's. juke boxes w/ sinatra (actually sinatra stayed above one of em in the 50's when he was ex-communicated for a couple of years) an soda in bottles. nothin beats it. next up is sal's in mamaroneck, ny. best sicilian you'll ever have. joe torre picks up two reg pies every sunday night. in nyc, i love v an t on amsterdam an 112th st. great cheesecake too. then downtown you got john's on bleeker (becks on tap!!!) an i forget the name of it but that place that used to be on the corner of bleeker an carmine that moved half a block over to 6th ave. i always go there for slices. home of the $20 pie. only in new york. pizza rules!!!

They have really good pizza in Ft. Lauderdale, due to all the New Yorkers that moved down there. (And the amazing Primanti Bros. from Pittsburgh even has a store down there.) It might be the same in the Tampa area for all I know.

i used to love their pizza when i was in cincinnati, but i usually opted for pomodori since i lived right down the street.

as far as memphis pizza is concerned, i'm really not the biggest fan of any places around here, although that johnny brusco's place is pretty good. those garlic knots are freakin' great there too. drenched in garlic butter. for shizzle.

I know a lot of folks will disagree, as it is kind of an acquired taste...but my favorite Pizza in Memphis is Fox Ridge Pizza. I grew up on it, been eatin it since I was 7 years old...and I have never had any other pizza like it anywhere. Too bad they moved out to Cordova(used to be on Knight Arnold/Ridgeway), but the Pizza is still badass....thick, biscuit-like crust and not shy on the toppings..in fact if you get green olives they just throw 'em on there whole, not even sliced...looks like ya got green marbles all over your pizza. Nothin better than a loaded pie and a couple pitchers of beer there. Love it.

If the pizza I made at home wasn't so fucking good, I might try more places.

As it stands, Nostrana makes the best real (Napolitano) pizza in town. Apizza Scholls makes the best american style pizza (with Ken's a close second). Escape from New York makes the best greasy pizza. Round Table makes the best chain pizza.

Shocking no one in Memphis has a candidate...pizza sucks in this town.

Truer words were never spoken. I'd trade Scott's left arm for Minsky's in KC to open a franchise here.

Round Table makes the best chain pizza.

Fuck yeah.

There used to be a place in LO called Pizza Foundry. I would, literally, behead someone for the recipe for their sauce.
Honestly, the place may still be open, I have no clue.
I am all about beheading today.

If the pizza I made at home wasn't so fucking good, I might try more places.
What is your secret?? I definitely have made some tasty pies but have yet to make the perfect crust.
Thanks for the recommendations- I have tried Apizza and Escape from NY but not for a long while, they are kind of far from where I live and I am lazy. Nostrana is definitely on the to-try list now.

Their smoked chicken is f'ing unbelievable as well...as Skank Police can attest...

Yeah, affordable late night happy hour pizzas and Butterscotch Boudin to boot. Still the only boudin I've had since landing in Portland.

Not the "perfect" crust or real napolitano, but this is a recipe from Tuscany that is my fallback, hungover, non-challenging, always kick-ass way to go.

1 package yeast over 1/2 cup warmed milk, wait 10 min.

mix in 2 eggs, 2+ cups all purpose flour, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.. add additional flour to get dough past the sticky to the tacky phase...

let rise 1 hour or more, up to 3 hours.

split in two. roll out thin & toss until very thin, 1/4 of inch or less. brush with olive oil and let rise again for 20 minutes. meanwhile preheat oven to 550 or as hot as it will go.

if you are using really wet toppings, throw the dough in the oven for 90 seconds before adding said toppings. best not to use real wet stuff. squeeze the mozzarella, really reduce the sauce and don't load up the crust with ingredients. keep it light and balanced, the crust is the star not the toppings.

Bake for about 7 or 8 minutes until there's a little burn on top. remove from oven and rest for about the same time. slice and enjoy.

this works for me.

Sounds damn good to me. I will try again after my last failed pizza dough experience. Thank you much.

I got a pizza stone, but if I havers let the dough rise for 20 on the peel, it's gonna stick no matter how much cornmeal I use.

Maybe too much wet matter in your dough? Never had much problems with sticking.

Goddamn. For Portlanders who love thin crust pies- there is a new hole in the wall place in the parking lot on N. Greeley and Killingsworth, it's called DePokos: http://pizzadepokos.blogspot.com/ - it was some of the best pizza I've had in awhile. They do lebanese flat bread with Zaatar too.

Though it's now closed down AV's in DC was bonerific. Their white pizza was insane.
Hope I'm not the only one here who knows whats up.

Holy shit that greek pie on Depokos' blog looks AMAZING! Crust looks a little too puffy around the edges for my tastes, but still... I can't wait to try it this weekend, or maybe tomorrow evening.

Pizza Schmizza's $10 one topping ain't bad.

I still haven't tried new improved Dominos, but it could stand a LOT of improvement before it even approaches being good.

Do it Do it Do it! So damn delicious. I highly recommend the one with the lebanese 3 cheese AND zaatar- I think they do it half and half.

you can a get Lebanese pizza (manouche) with zaatar, pomegranate seasoned lamb, cheese or all three at Amana Bakery on Winchester between Getwell and Lamar.

It's good on its own, but it's really good wrapped up around cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, and pickles.

Yeah, I'm too drunk to make the 2nd day pie.

Last night's pie was real good. Dough was a little "cakey" but certainly was a great last minute recipie. Only one I've seen with eggs? Anyway, all the others needed at least 3-4 hours rise, so at 1 hr, yours won out. Good recipie, and great results, I'll use it again.

I'll do up the rest of the dough mon or tues when I'm in better shape.

Seconded. I stopped working out that way in 2007, but I used to hit it up all the time. I am glad it is still open. Easily the best pita in town, too....
