Palermo's in (east) Hollywood, CA. Owned by an immigrant Sicilian family, 30 years in business and I've been a customer for 29 of those years, has grown from 6 tables to 30 with a full bar, always a wait for a table. Ask for Tony--what a stereotypical Italian name, but I suppose he could have been named (super) Mario. He has two walls of then-unknown celebrity headshots, some of whom now are famous, but they all claim to like the pizza.

Still looking for the "best", but a few from memory that were always good.
DiGennaro's - Reno, NV (sold to a family that switched over to a mexican restaurant....then closed.)
Blondie's in Berkeley.
Up here in the PNW, there are a few places that do O.K.(The Rock, Pagliacci, NEO,) but still haven't found one that I'd rate higher than a 6 on a 1-10 scale.

There's a little place here in Amarillo that used to be called Basil Docs (now 575 Pizzeria). Great pies and salads.

the list goes on and on...
Ever been to Modern Pizza in New Haven, Roseland in Ansonia, or Rosies in Stratford?

My all-time favorite from my youth was DeNito's in Bridgeport. Can't touch it.

Santarpio's in East Boston, and Pizzaria Regina in the North End will do though.

Pizza Salad because it's gluten free.

http://pizzasalad.com/

Otherwise, it would be a New York Style pizza joint with greasy pizza.

I've regularly ordered delivery from those two, but favorite pizza joint? I don't think either one has a dining area.

In Houston my favorites are:
Pizza Roma on Diary Ashford. (closed)
Barry's Pizza on Richmond. Best Sicilian now that Pizza Roma is closed.
Star Pizza. Very good, not great pizza, but a great pizza joint. atmosphere.

For a franchise pizza joint I think Russo's New York Pizzeria is awesome. You can't beat the XL 28" for parties.

There was one of these on Panama City Beach for two years and I never made it in. Always meant to, but you know how that goes. One day I'll try the one in Destin.

Recently a Red Elephant Pizza opened in town. Two thumbs up.

I'm not one for bougie pizza, but 2 weeks ago I was in LA for work and a friend of mine took me to Pizzeria Mozza (the little brother of Osteria Mozza). I have to say, it was tremendous. The crust was absolute perfection, a shade before burnt with a softer inside. This actually brings me to a good point: most people claim that the difference between east and west coast pizza is the crust. I beg to differ, as I've had equally good crust on both coasts... no, I believe it's the sauce. Sauce on the east coast tends to be a bit sweeter, with less of a marinara flavor to it. Anyhow, back from tangentia, for dessert we had a "butterscotch budino" that was like a little butterscotch pudding. They prepared this salty, as well as sweet, and it was unbelievable. I would highly recommend this place, but with one caveat: make reservations... they open at 12pm, we got there at 11:30 thinking that would be safe for a walk-in, and it was, just barely.

PS. Best pizza in NY, Ciro's on beach 116 in Rockaway imo.
