How Could Buffalo Possibly Have the Best Pizza in America?
A new book makes a huge mistake about pizza in America, specifically, which area of the country has the best pizza.
When you think of great pizza - you think of places like New York City and their thick or thin crust pies, or Chicago deep dish - you certainly don't think of Buffalo, NY. Unless you're author Arthur Bovino, who asserts in his new book "Buffalo Everything" that you can find the best pizza west of Central New York.
An excerpt of his new book was published at the DailyBeast.com, and in it, he tries to make the case for Buffalo as the pizza capital of America. Blah blah blah - he tasted all the pizza. Blah blah blah.
First of all, pizza STARTED in the United States in New York City in 1905 at a place called Lombardi's. Unless you've had a slice in Brooklyn or Little Italy in New York City, I'm not sure you're even in a position to judge.
And what about Utica? or Rome? We've got some damn good pizza too! What about pizza from O'Scugnizzo? Slice? DiCastro's?
Buffalo? Come on.
Chicken wings, yes.
But not pizza. Sorry Nickel City.
