Favorite Pizza

Posted January 19, 2010

It was pizza night at the Leslie house! I was really excited. My daughter Lauren did the cooking. She's on break from year-round school as a first grade teacher. She's spending most of her time planning her wedding in September but she's also doing some cooking and that's great.


Pizza can kill a low carb diet but it sure tastes good and in moderation I think it's fine. We did this a while back but I'd like to do it again. What is your favorite pizza restaurant?


I surveyed the morning news team. Kelcey's favorite is Lilly's in Raleigh. Brian prefers Salvio's in Cary. Elizabeth loves Mellow Mushroom which also drew raves from several crewmembers. I really like Cinelli’s pizza and The Loop’s Mediterranean pizz is terrific. Amedeo’s also serves up great pizza.


What about  your favorite?   Who makes the best pizza?

    I put my vote in for Joey O's between Sunset and Ocean Isle beaches. They have the best pizza and marinara sauce ever!!!

    Bill: I have two favorites. NY Pizza at Tryon and Cary Parkway for the crust and overall taste and Ruckus in Mission Valley for value, slice size and overall quality.

    Alfredo's pizzeria at University Mall in Chapel Hill is by far the best pizza anywhere near me. why go with a chain when you can get hand tossed crust, fresh ingredients, and friendly in store service at a place like Alfredos. Amante's is OK, but something about Alfredo's keeps me coming back (over 10 years now!).

    FYI -Casa Doria at Sawmill is now (and has been for awhile) Stella Mare Ristorante & Pizza - very good, too.

    I have to put in an extra word for Piccola Italia Pizza in Cameron Village.

    The Best Pizza ever is at Andy's Pizza in Quail Corner shopping center in Raleigh. Nothing else compares to this..........
