Paulie’s Pizzeria – New York Style Pizza in Columbia, SC

March 20, 2007

Just tried out Paulie’s for lunch and it is genuine New York Style Pizza, right here in Columbia, SC.    Paulie’s is located at 4517 Forest Drive, between Beltline and Fort Jackson.   I ordered to big cheese slices.  The crust is particularly thin and kind of crispy– very tasty.  They put corn meal on the underside of the crust which is not my favorite thing, but it is very tasty and nice for a change. 

 For atmosphere, I like Paulie’s.  Very New York, very New Jersey, very Pittsburgh.   

They don’t serve Sicilian pies.   One of my buddies tried a Stromboli and it was yummy, too. 


Anthony’s Pizza – Bryson City – Still the Best in NC

March 20, 2007

After five days in the woods, eating oatmeal, macaroni & cheese, Ramen noodles, & Slim Jims, my son Tommy and I emerged from the Smokies with a serous appetite for some excellent New York Style Pizza.  Fortunately, in the town of Bryson City, right there on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, sits the very best Pizza place in North Carolina, and certainly one of the best in the South East.  Anthony’s Pizzeria has the good stuff! 

So we ordered an Extra-Large (18″) cheese pie and we dug in.  It was perfect and all we could ask for as the perfect end to a most excellent camping adventure. 

Anthony’s is located in Bryson City, right across from the train station where you can catch the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad
