Nah, too lame for Sheppy. Generic troll. Sheppy was better than this guy.


Sheesh. Um, TimeMasterFlex, I'll counter with welcome to Madison, and welcome to the forum.... I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and venture a guess that you are a real human being who just wants to get a NY slice of 'za here. My time on the east coast totally schooled me as to what that is-- I'm guessing that "foldable" is on your list of criteria? Curious as to where you've tried thus far.

Many folks seem to point to Di Roma as a good replicate of New York style pizza, but I disagree. I have heard Picasso's is decently close. And for what it's worth, when I was living out East, I was led many, many times to a tiny pizza shop in Northampton, MA called Pinocchio's, which is (I'm pretty sure) where Ian of Ian's Pizza started out-- I wouldn't consider Ian's east coast style pizza per se, but the crust is great. I can't really point you in a great direction, as personally, I prefer a chewier, sturdier crust- Roman Candle is my favorite in Madison, crust-wise. But I hope you find it-- It can be very comforting to find a food that matches up to your hometown fave.


Thank you for taking the time to write out your suggestions. I will try Roman Candle in Middleton.

Since you are the only one who gave me suggestions, thank you for the welcome to the board! I was told the forum here was very elitist by a local co-worker but you at least are proving her wrong!

I was chagrined on a recent visit to New York to discover that you can't find a single place that serves a decent slice of Madison-style pizza.

What the hell?

Time for some straight talk - Pizza is sucker food.

Tacos are where it's at - they're less fatty, more flavorful and there are less jerks whining about how they can't get NEW YORK style tacos.

The truth: There's maybe not a worse city than NYC for tacos.

I said it.

Is Sheppy and TMF in the same thread just a ploy to throw us off the Sheppy-scent? I'm upping my probability to 60%. So more likely than not. Still from other threads TMF could be any number of right wing Madison.com expats. Cortez perhaps? Only time will tell.

Go to Kollege Klub or the Weary Trendy and hang out with the coasters. Maybe they'll know.

Now we just need MysticalHamster or KidCapitol and we can really get rolling with the sockpuppetry.

We all know that "TheBookPolice" identity is a very, very elaborate sockpuppet for my dreaded nemnesis, "FancyPizza". I'M ON TO YOU FANCY PIZZA. When I'm mayor, you will become increasingly unfashionable, while my kind will be prominently featured in every upscale mall in the Midwest.

If I had one more finger on each hand, I would get this tattooed on my knuckles. Maybe one of those multi-finger word rings...

That sort of trendy, overpriced accessory is EXACTLY WHAT I WOULD EXPECT from ol' FancyPizza.

Way too many letters, even if you included your toes. But damn, that would be an awesome conversation-starter.

You have seven fingers? On one hand, or both together? How did that happen?

Word. It makes no sense, but it's true.


Who in Madison has the best taco pizza?
