It looks like the Daily Meal's 101 list got under PMQ's skin:

At least PMQ acknowledges that Walter and Judy and their staff "make some of Americaís best New York-style pizzas."

lists are for sure subjective and someone will always be left off or put on that will be disagreed with.  I learned leaving the NYC area that pizza was a completely different thing than I grew up with.  What we grew up with is usually always going to be the best whether it makes a list or not :)

Thanks.  It is a challenge everyday to make consistently good pies.  I like the challenge.   Walter

Thanks for posting this. My takeaway wasnít that it got under their skin, however subtlety is often lost on me. There were some well-known good ones in the top 11. Anybody putting together a list such as this needs a system for selection and ranking. Thatís not to say the world needs such lists but clearly they pay off in one way or another or we wouldn't see so many of them. The article ended with disclosing the system Daily Meals used. I thought it was pretty straightforward, neither right nor wrong.


What did I miss?

Congratulations Walter, itís certainly a testament to your vision and is well deserved!

On a side note, God bless you for being able to utilize that bottom oven. Iíve avoided adding another deck on mine because they are so low. Iíd feel like Iím working on my car.

Thanks.   We figure you only live once so follow the dreams in your heart :)   The bottom oven is now a piece of cake to tend to.  I can squat down again and being 6'1" tall I thought those things were just a memory.

this list has a lot more weight to it than many of the others we have been on.  We could have sold 100 more pies tonight.  We sold out at 5:30 and the last pie went out the door at 7:15.  People are stopping us in the grocery store to say they read it and many never have tried our pie yet.  I wear my Smiling with Hope shirt and hat most every where I go.  Makes making a clothing choice real simple  :-D

Thanks.  We have so many NY/NJ/PA/CT transplants here I often times feel like I am back home.
