carbone's pizza, minnestoa
« on: June 04, 2005, 07:11:44 PM »
i grew up in minneapolis/st. paul eating carbone's pizza (my all-time favorite).   this is a fairly large chain in minneapolis/st. paul (about 20 shops i believe).  has anyone been?

the pizza is chicago thin crust style, i.e. the pizza is thin, lots of sauce, and cut into squares.  also, they have a great sauce recipe i would love to get my hands on.  actually, 2 of the shops are different from the others and use the *original* carbone's sauce recipe from the 1950s.  the one on randolph ave in st. paul is one of the 2, i went to university nearby and frequently stopped by for a pie.  apparently, there was a feud between 2 brothers some time ago, and one changed the sauce recipe and opened up another shop, which is now franchised and there are lots.  but i like the original sauce recipe better.

also, in northfield minnesota there are a couple of chicago style thin places that are great, bill's pizza and basil's pizza.  another brother pizza feud   :)
