Where can I get a good pizza in Milwaukee? Think crust please.

  1. I meant "thin crust" not "think crust". Sorry

    1. On the east side try Zaffiros on Farwell. Further west in Wauwatosa I've always liked Balistreri's on 68th and Wells. Both are thin crust.

        Balistreri's is AMAZING!!! Also Anne's in Hales Corners is pretty fantastic!

      2. Also on the west side, Lalli's Pizza at around 89th and North Avenue, is superb. Carry out only, and I think it's cash only.

          MAN! Moved away from Milwaukee 6 years ago and still crave Lalli's on a monthly basis; they used to deliver though. I like it best thrown into the refridgerator and eaten cold... mmmmmm

            I mis-"spoke". It's possible that they still deliver; what I meant to convey was that it is not an eat-in place. I live fairly close to it, so I have never thought to ask about delivery.

            The first time I thought to try it, I went on line looking for a menu, but they are old-school enough that they dont have a website. So I went over, placed my order, and had a drink at the Club Tap next door. They called the bar to ask them to let me know my order was ready! What a fun way to order a pizza!

            Have you tried anything from there besides the pizza?

        2. On the East side as well, near UWM. Lisa's pizza on Oakland. I usually ask for the crust crispy, to make sure they don't undercook, which they seldom do, but......
