That’s my take on the old Alka-Seltzer commercial! I only call it apizza when in CT. There’s a word for all the rest. Garbage. Especially in Ohio!
Pizza in New York and New Jersey is NOT garbage.,not by a long shot. Pizza in America originated in New York and it’s still tops in my book. Had pizza in “apizza” territory, and it’s very good, but not God’s gift to pizza. I’ll give Pepe’s their great clam pie, after that NYC is still champ. 65+ years of pizza eating, but its just this FBI Italian’s humble opinion!
New York has terrific apizza. I’ve never eaten any in New Jersey, but I assume there are plenty of really great pies there. But after nearly 80 years of eating the stuff I’m sticking with New Haven.
