      Wonderful toppings, and a great thin crust.

      Also Punch Pizza, various sites.

      Punch Pizza
      3226 W Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55416

      Black Sheep Coal Fired Pizza
      600 Washington Ave N, Minneapolis, MN 55401

        The food at Reds is incredible. Incredibly bad. My in-laws love it. But its truly awful.

      2. black sheep is the only fair pizza i have found in MSP

        1. Bar Pizza (Robust Sauce + Tons o' toppings) = Red's Savoy on W. 7th (This specific location is key)
          NY Style = Cossetta's
          Coal Fired = Black Sheep

          Personally, I don't like Punch due to the fact that the 2-3" surrounding the dead center of every pizza I've ever had becomes soggy within 30 seconds of the pizza leaving the oven. Unacceptable imo.

            I've had the same issue with Punch. You pick up a slice and flops like a wet piece of paper.

            Black Sheep or Cossetta's would be my choice.

              Punch is my favorite but it has gotten a bit wet.

                They use a lot of olive oil when they make it. They literally drizzle it all over. The trick is to ask for less/light olive oil and you will be much happier.

                1. re: erics667

                  Right, that's their style. You can also ask for your pizza with added olive oil, to make it even soggier. That's how I usually order a Punch pizza - either Neo style or DOC, either way there's extra olive oil.

              1. These pizza ratings always ebb and flow with me. Pizza Luce used to be good, but now it's not.

                Leaning Tower has gained some ground with me lately for thin crust.

                Pizza Nea, damn good now.
