anyway, next step is to get myself firebrick and heat-resistant ceramic for my oven to simulate the super-hot dedicated-pizza oven taste. with the ultra-fresh ingredients and the 3-4 minute cooking time, tops.

heaven on a slice and actually pretty good for the health system. that is the critical combo i'm looking for.

Down my block we have a place call "Little Caesars." The chain is best known for its "Hot-N-Ready" pizzas, large pizzas with popular toppings. Crazy Bread, eight bread sticks covered in garlic spread and Parmesan cheese, is also a staple item on their menu and a popular side-dish.

The food there is amazing. If some of you are lucky enough to come across it, I highly recommend you give it a shot. It's not too expensive and you won't regret it.

Little Caesers is actually better than 99% of the pizza joints in the world.
Taste, Price, Convenience. Hard to beat. Good post.

Where in Greenpoint?

I just discovered some of the Polish markets there. One place is amazingly good and cheap, but I only get someone who speaks English about a third of time that I go there. Ended up with some Canadian bacon when I trying for this awesome Polish smoked pork loin.

When I was overseas both in New York and Europe I had some of the best pizzas ever. The best I've ever had was actually at an Italian restaurant in Paris. Pizza in Australia is very ordinary, so I've decided to learn to make my own. Just need a starting point, I've never really cooked from scratch before (except for roast dinners and curries). I usually just buy a base and pre made sauce - but they aren't getting the job done

hah, paris! i was too busy wolfing down the rustic blue plates, wine and cheese to even think of that. i did have really nice thin artichoke pizza in firenze, once, but that was a long time ago and i can't remember it very well. my euro trips were far too short. :/

how about this- have you tried making white pizza with fresh tomato slices, fresh basil, spinach and olive oil? as in, put the sauce and cheese aside for a moment and see if that helps. or maybe just use a little bit of hard grating cheese to add the savory and salt you want.

from what i've read in the past, original pizza was more like thin bread with some herbs and olive oil on top. only later did massive amounts of cheese and tomato sauce start to get added, and i'm not convinced it was really such a great move...

Around where I live they have a $5 walk-in large pizza deal. That is amazing when all you want is a large pepperoni pizza for dirt cheap and you don't want to make it.

right, but how many places can you get it fresh-baked? the packaged kind has pretty much zero chance of matching even crappy pizza IME.
