For cheap Pizza I kinda like the Cici's buffet.

Yeah, I don't really see how you can beat a six dollar all you can eat pizza buffet.  The Buffalo Chicken pizza is one of my all-time faves as I usually dish half the pan onto my plate when I go.

I can never make my mind up if I like the buffalo chicken or not...but every time I go I have a couple slices.

Maniac, I used to work at a Little Caesars and we had Italian Cheese Bread which was almost exactly what Kamala described.  Basically pizza dough made in a square with cheese and then butter and this parmesan and oregano shit sprinkled on top.  Dip it in some marinara sauce and it was probably the best thing on the menu.

Also, Little Caesars didn't use real pepperonis - they used salami, which is a lot cheaper.

Yeah, those are what we'd call garlic fingers - except they come with donair sauce around here. Had to ask; I found it hard to believe that other places hadn't thought of it.
But that's the way I like it baby

Here's a nice LA Times article about the multiple cultures offering their takes on pizza: http://articles.latimes.com/2010/apr/15/food/la-fo-pizza-20100415
It's definitely not what you're looking for if you want a traditional pizza, but it shouldn't offend you unless you're really serious about the usual deep dish slop or New York style whatever pizza that people seem to want.

I'm tired of people complaining about LA. If you're an east coast transplant who comes here just to whine about how everything is different from back home, and you feel the need to remind everybody that you're from New Jersey or whatever whenever you talk to people, you should be flogged.

The people that complain about the lack of Dunkin' Donuts are the fuckin' worst.

The local Metro (formerly A&P) grocery mart now makes wood oven pizzas on order. It's not a blow away pizza by any means but it's $9, comes with a 2L of Coke, and tastes good (the crust is very good).

The idea is you place the order when you start shopping then pick it up on your way out.

Casa Di Mama's Hawaiian pizza is by far the best frozen pizza I have ever had.  I would legit choose it over all but 3 pizza places.  The crust is like a fucking croissant.  The only problem is it can easily be downed in one sitting.

Been to New York a few times, but live in California. So while I'm not an "East Coaster", I can say that I've spent my fair share of time on the East Coast.

With that said, Valentino's Pizza in Manhattan Beach, CA is as good as any pizza I've had in New York

A great pizza place opened up near me called Squistos. Best pizza I've had in some time, especially since they have toppings you usally won't find at other places, like eggplant.

Garlic Fingers, are all over the place, we just call them Garlic Twists.
Little Casear's $5 large "Hot N Ready" Pepperoni deal is hard to beat, and even Pizza Hut as the Pizza Mia's for $5 with one topping of your choice.

The worst thing about pizza down here is that it seems like nobody makes a good deep dish. If anyone is aware of one in the LA area please say so.

Baltimore has shit for pizza. I can't even name one local pizza place that is even decent. They all try for a NYC style pizza and yet still fail. Horrible.

So I finally dropped Domino's new pizza. I didn't really notice any difference outside of maybe the sauce being slightly better. Crust tasted the same, cheese tasted the same, topping were the same. Same ol' mediocre stuff that I only order after a night of drinking because it's right down the street from my house and open till 3 A.M. on weekends.

Unless I'm missing something here, garlic twists are not garlic fingers.

From my brief foray into the internet, garlic twists appear to be like breadsticks, kinda; garlic fingers are served basically exactly like a pizza, except it's cut into strips and not slices like a pizza is.
But that's the way I like it baby

  • I finally changed this.
You're pretty much right.  Strictly speaking, Garlic Fingers are fairly rare in the states.  It's like garlic bread made round and like a pizza and offers all the upgrade paths as such.  In SF plenty of joints offer something similar but not exactly the same.  I'd say the difference is along the level of french fries vs. curly fries or potato wedges, but even more so.

Not that bread twists and shit didn't exist until recently but recently they've been gaining a lot more notoriety and become wide spread.  Also, in SF, there tends to be really good french and sourdough bread so might as well make things with that when you can so I can see why folks rarely dabbled in Garlic Finger technology.  :P

Yeah, it's alright but nothing to write home about with the new ad campaign. The only difference I tasted in the one by my house is the crust.

See I have a Domino's Pizza right  down the street from the house. In the ten years or so that it was open, I went maybe four or five times before this summer. Now I go once or twice a week thanks to the slightly less shitty pizza and the two medium, two topping pizzas for $12 deal. I think Brooklyn Style is a not terrible approximation of New York style pizza. Maybe my favorite of the big chain pizzas especially since Papa John's has kind of gone to shit for some reason the past few years.

Now back to good pizza, I had a really good fancy pie from Portland Pie Co (local chain) the other week with fresh scallops, smoked bacon, scallions, and fresh mozzarella on white sauce with a beer crust. It was $22 for a large but totally worth it. Seafood on pizza sounded a bit weird to me at first but I can why Aussies are into it. I'm surprised now that I don't see it more often here.

Have we had a discussion on frozen pizza? I'm less picky than most when it comes to that junk but I got a beef with Newman's Own frozen pizza. They taste pretty good but they're perhaps the least filling thing ever. Like eating pizza toppings on a cracker. I guess that's as much of a beef with super thin crust pizza in general. I could eat a whole one and still feel kind of hungry.

Neapolitan pie - be it Boston North End or NYC style - is my favorite, with one of the best I've encountered being a small pizzeria in Walpole, MA called Leo's. Huge pies, absolutely delicious, and pretty damn cheap. After the Neapolitan style, it's easy to say that Chicago's deep dish are great, even if the only style we can really get out in Mass in Uno's.

Re: Greek pizza
Kung, I'm really not sure why it's the preferred style for smaller chains in NE, but it damn sure is delicious. Greasy, thick crust, copious amounts of cheese and toppings...man, it's great if done right (which, oddly enough, few chains up here even do right anymore). The only non-Greek pizzeria in my town that isn't a franchise, like Papa Gino's or Domino's, is, probably, one of the worst fucking places I've ever eaten at. It used to be downright delicious, but new owners came in a few years ago and ruined it all up.

Yeah, I love Greek style pizza but I'm not sure if it's because I grew up with it or if it's legit awesome. People I know from New York certainly are grossed out about it. Fuck 'em! Like I said earlier, it's like an almost homemade version of Pizza Hut pizza and sometimes, that's what you need.

Eh, Pizza Hut can't touch the {town} House of Pizza places, though. Maybe it's just because all the ones around me are run by retards and burnouts, but the best local place - Franklin Pizza & Deli - is miles ahead of any Pizza Hut I've ever eaten at.

According to commercials I see when I watch television from Seattle, Roundtable is the "last honest pizza". I recall commercials where they had a pretty good looking meatball pizza.

Well, I thought homemade implied better. Though I guess it's possible some people can fuck up making pizza.

Portland's gotten a deluge of really good pizza places in the past five years. Ten years ago, all we had were House of Pizza type places and chains. Now we've got a bunch of NY style places and quite a few premium, slightly upscale type joints. My absolute favorite is Otto, which is open till 2 A.M. on the weekends. Awesome New York style thin crust. As good if not better than a lot of the pizza I've had in NYC.

Check out this menu!

That being said, Portland House of Pizza is still high up there if I want some greasy ass, thick crust pizza.
