Pizza Obsessives Adam Kuban 30 comments

Whether you read Slice or Serious Eats in general, you're familiar with OMG, Food That Changed My Life. For most of us, it's exaggeration, a figure of speech. But for the students in Walter Gloshinski's special needs class at Newark High School, pizza is literally helping shape them as they shape it. More

Daily Slice: Pork Sausage from Lolita, Cleveland, OH

Daily Slice Daniel Zemans Post a comment

Iron Chef Michael Symon doesn't have a pizzeria but based on the pie I had at his restaurant Lolita in Cleveland, he definitely should think about. The pork sausage pizza, featuring housemade sausage and an excellent crust, is too good to be relegated to a small pizza section on a menu with so many non-pizza options. More

Daily Slice Daniel Zemans 4 comments

At Tony's Southside Pizza, a tiny shop in Cleveland that's only open two nights a week, the pizza isn't going to blow you away, but the hospitality and ambience are about as good as it gets if you're looking for a place to wind down at the end of the night. More

Columbus, Ohio: Rubino's Pizza Serves Dreamy Midwestern-Style Pies

Prairie 23 comments

Rubino's knows what it does well, and that's reflected in its modest menu. You can basically choose from among pizza, spaghetti, and salad. The end. They know you don't need all of the other crap if they can do those three things well. I've always thought that methodology was a thing of beauty. More

Adam Kuban 2 comments

[Photograph: A Tavola's Facebook] The wood-fired, Neapolitan-inspired pizza wave continues to sweep the U.S. Last week, we touched on the opening of Boulder, Colorado's Pizzeria Locale (officially opened as of Tuesday), which had a Stefano Ferrara oven shipped over from Italy. This week, we've gotten word that A Tavola Pizza in Cincinnati just took shipment on its Ferrara-built oven yesterday. That's the bad boy being forklifted off the tractor-trailer in the photo above.... More

Today, friend of Slice Phiip Given sends in this link about Formaggio Pizza, a Steubenville-inspired pizzeria making its way in Columbus, Ohio. They bake the crust and toppings first and then add the cheese post-oven. More

Serious Eats contributor Daniel Zemans, our man in Chicago, checks in with another piece of intel from the road, this time in Cincinnati. —The Mgmt. Photographs by Andrew Stamm LaRosa’s Pizzeria 417 Madison Road, Covington KY 41011 (map); 773-275-7080‎; larosas.com Pizza Style: Traditional (thin), hand-tossed (medium), and crispy pan (thick) Oven Type: Gas The Skinny: Popular Cincinnati chain's success is baffling, as this is just not good pizza Price: Large thin crust, one topping, $14.04; large focaccia-style pie, $17.14.

Dewey's Pizza (four locations) 3814 Madison Road, Cincinnati OH 45227 [map]; 513-731-7755 265 Hosea Avenue, Cincinnati OH 45220 [map]; 513-221-0400 300 Main Street, Cincinnati OH 45202 [map]; 513-352-0032 11338 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati OH 45249 [map]; 513-247-9955 Words and Photographs by Steve F. | This transplant from the East Coast says, "Cincinnati is a ghost town for pizza." Ask the locals, and they'll vehemently disagree—because they grew up with their favorite pizza chains, such as LaRosa's and Donato's. These local chains offer pizza that is one step above microwaveable pizza. Simply put, it's junk. However, if you really explore Cincinnati, there... More

A combination pizzeria–gas station just off I-90 somewhere in Ohio. A wider view of the same gas station (below right). This reporter went to Ohio on Saturday intent on trying some Cleveland pizza. With a little help from my friends, I had even targeted a preferred parlor. But like travelers on the highway to hell, our wheels merely sped down a westbound... More
