Where's the best?

Thanks for any suggestions.

  1. That is kind of a loaded question. Any particular area you are interested in?

      I'll have several hours free on Tuesday (late morning through mid afternoon) and am willing to travel anywhere in the greater Pittsburgh area to try any "can't miss" pizza. Then I'm picking up a friend at the airport (4pm), and we'd have time for another pizza place before heading south of the city for a business meeting on Wednesday.

      So tell me your best!

        Pizza Visuvio in South Side on Carson Street, aprroximately around the intersection of Carson St. and 15th St. Excellent New York style pizza. I like the plain best, though the white pizza does always lookd tempting and is good, the plain is the must try.

          Saw this thread come alive again and wanted to say that I feel Pizza Visuvio has gone downhill somewhat. Still good pizza, but no longer would say it's excellent.

            as long as we're adding to an old thread, I think we can all agree that Dinette belongs on this list.

    2. I ain't touchin' "the Best." Try Il Pizziola on Washington Road in Mt. Lebanon. Brick oven; thin crust.
      Also Mama Lena's on Island Ave in the Rocks.

      1. You could try the trifecta of pizza shops on Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill, Mineo's, Aillo's and Napoli.
        Each sells cut's so trying all three is possible in one afternoon. I know several people personally, who have Mineo's pizza FedEx'ed around the country.

        1. My vote is for Luciano's Pizza in White Oak.
          It IS the best in the city!!!

          You won't be disappointed!

          1. Not sure if anyone is still reading this thread, but the best place in the city is Fiori's through the Liberty Tunnel.
