Besides my wife's homemade pizza, the best I can find is made at Casey's General Stores. A gas station chain prominent in the midwest and Northern Plains.

It needs a crunch on the bottom, a chew overall, a sauce that isn’t star but something of a sweetish tang, and a hottish mild cheese. The meat should compliment but not be overpowering.

The key to getting that nice crunch at the bottom is a cornmeal crust. In Ohio we call it a cracker crust.

I go for the New York style, thin crust.

Being diabetic, I don't have pizza much, and the thin crust is much healthier for me.

Best I ever had was at a place up in Maine at a ski area. They lost their lease, I think.

Au contraire, that is one way but not the only way. There are tricks in the composition of the dough. I will not say yours is wrong, but one of many ways to get there.

Whenever I was in Murika, I would seek out a town's "mom & pop" Italian eatery. These have always been the places that produce the best quality pizza. As a Canuckistanian, I was raised to put all the ingredients on the pizza then nail it with a generous topping of cheese. The "mom & pop" shops seem to make it that way most often. A taste of home!

Husband and wife run pizza joint in North Idaho called Pepe Caldo.

they make their own crust and sauce. Best pizza I’ve ever had.

Caseys pizza sucks ass. Cornmeal crust is a excellent option for a crispy crust, however not the only option I would grill my crust when I made them at a restaurant. For our diabetic friend Hemp flour or cauliflower crust is a great option.

As far as chains go, no one does it better than Marco's, IMO

That's alright. You're entitled to be wrong.

Whenever I think gas station I get an image of a slice of pizza in a warming oven for 11 hours!


Picked over and then discarded by "x" number of people who have not washed their hands after landscaping and septic drainage.

Caseys has pizza by order. Never just grabbed a slice there although they have that. Breakfast pizza is their specialty. They have the option of cheese sauce or sausage gravy sauce. Good pepperoni as far as normal pizza goes.
