Don't waste your time going to 2Amys unless you have absolutely nothing else to do.
Pizza is not bread.

Thanks guys.  Pupatella is a must for me then.  I have seen some videos on YT and the pies look good.

I went to Pizza CS in Rockville Saturday night and was very pleased.  I got 3 pizzas and I liked them all.  I think they got a so so review on Slice.  They had the oven nice and hot and pizzas looked good.

I liked even more then my trip to Pupatella which I thought was a little doughy.

Chau:


I may be able to meet up after work one evening for a slice. Let me know your plans as the time gets closer.


What town is your brother in?


Edit: You may want to check out this video, I watched it on PBS a few weeks ago (about Pizza around DC):

Thanks acbova.   I might have to try them both if time permits and compare. 

Steve, that would be fun if you can meet up.  My brother lives in Alexandria, Va.  I will definitely keep you posted.

Chau - good meeting you and your brother last night and to experience PizzaCS.


I also want to thank Ankur (co-owner of PizzaCS and forum member) for taking the time to talk to us and for sharing the ice cream samples.


Chau, his brother (spelling please Chau) and I all agreed the Sopressata pizza was the best of the 5 we tries. It had a big flavorful kick to it.



Here are a couple of photos.

Steve, it was also very nice to meet you as well.  I enjoyed talking pizza with you and Ankur.  I like the last picture you posted best.  The "No pineapple" slogan made me think of Craig.  :-D

I will post the pictures I have in a bit.

Yes I think it is Dohboy.  Here are a few pics of the pies.   If anyone is interested in visiting pizza cs, I would recommend trying a few different pies but order 2 at a time.  NP pies are always best hot out of the oven.   This first one had Compara bufala mozz.  Good stuff.

A few more pics.  Ankur was really nice.  He recognized right away that he had a couple of pizza nerds in his shop and took time to answer questions and talk pie.   The icecream Ankur brought to our table was fabulous as well.

Lol Steve.  I either need to stop dropping my cell phone or it was from my greasy fingers on the lens.  :-[
