Best pies in 50 states

Not sure if this has been posted already. If so, maybe a Mod can delete it. But for Oklahoma, I disagree. It's good pizza, but not the best the state has to offer.  http://www.zagat.com/b/50-state-50-pizzas?utm_source=disqus&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=desktopbuzz

Big disagree with the SC pick, Monza.  Not even close to what you expect from Neapolitan pizza.  It was thin, dry and crackerlike for one thing...and I bet the oven wasn't even close to 700*.   It was a disappointment.

Never even heard of the place listed for NJ. And I disagree with the NY selection as well. These lists are fun to look at anyway. Thanks Nick!

The CT pick and the CO pick were good though.  'Best' is subject to preference, but both places make good pizza.

Beau Jo's? I would put it as the worst Pizza in CO. Nasty. Marco's Coal Fired Pizza is the best Pizza in Denver.

Well, when I went in 1997 we thought it was good.   We did have better food in boulder, but not pizza.

I haven't tried Beau Jo's in 20 years, and probably will not again.  That said, comparing a Marco's NP pizza to Beau Jo's thick, heavy "Mountain Pies" (or whatever they are calling them) is really an apples and oranges type deal.  Beau Jo's was pretty innovative back in the '80's.

Is Marcos anywhere near the airport?

Not really.  He has two locations.  One is right in Lower Downtown (Lo Do - Central Denver), and the other is just south of Denver.  Both locations are probably 45 to 60 min(?) from the DIA. They do a pretty good job on the NP.  It is NOT coal fired!

DIA is not near anything......

Thanks.  Not coal fired? I wonder why they advertise it as such?

Have we not learned by now that these asinine lists have no place here?

Yep.  I'm just turning someone on to Marco's.  You can relax! ;D

Not sure.  I think he does some coal fired wings or something.  I've only had the pizza.

I like these lists  >:D

Not because they tell us anything of value, but, rather, they're a good barometer for seeing how far the public has their head up their behind where the public's head is at, as well as a means for detecting which pizza bloggers are being read by the mainstream publications.  This particular list didn't seem to reveal any noticeable blogger influence, but, it's fun to see when Adam's picks pop up- as they frequently do.

The Downtown location ovens do run coal..... Occasionally. Worth a stop if you are in Denver. Better? Call me. My NP is vastly superior.
