I went through a phase where I did not like pizza. I think this is mostly because as a kid and teen I was only exposed to fast food delivery chains or buffets (the worst). So when I started trying new foods, I really got into the Mediterranean or Greek type pizzas with the different types of olives and veggie toppings, but not all pizzas are created alike.
I have had slices from all over, Alabama, Virginia, California, and Florida and so far Virginia is taking the cake... or pie really. I fell in love with pizza again in Charlottesville, Va at a little place well known in the area called Christians Pizza (link below). There is three or four locations in the Charlottesville area, the location I frequent when I am in the area is the one at the Downtown Mall.
Now any real pizza lover knows that pizza is not just pizza, its a marriage between crust, sauce, and toppings. Christians has never failed, the crusts is always the perfect thickness to have a crunchy and soft texture and the same time, just the right amount of sauce and ingredients where you can taste the freshness. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Seriously, its like your first love, who you compare all your new boyfriends to.
On top of a quality product, the atmosphere is great. When you walk in you are greeted by a bar of what may be more than ten different types of pizza by the slice, calzones, and other pizzeria yummies! Christians doesn't deliver but its always worth the drive!
