RobDeer! I accidentally deleted your post when trying to split it out into its own topic. My apologies!

Basically, RobD was asking what everyone's favorite pizza places in WI are. He mentioned Balistreri's in Wauwatosa and Sammy's in Eau Claire (at least I think that was it)

I can vouch for Balistreri's since I basically grew up on that pizza. Very good deep fried eggplant too!

It used to be Silvio's in Wisconsin Rapids. But they retired. Now I'll go with Portesis in Wisconsin Rapids.

I like Transfer in MKE. I find the pizza in MKE to be lacking once you're not part of the 3am crowd. Not that it's bad, it's just not anything special. Transfer is good though.

Ha! No worries. Yes pretty spot on. Awesome to hear you are a Balistreri's fan too! I always go to the one on 68th but have been to the one on Bluemound. It's a family tradition that we go there every time we are in town.

Yes Sammy's in EC but is also in Green Bay and Neenah (used to be in Cumberland as well and several in MN). I mentioned I found out some have the family recipe and some maybe go off on their own a bit, so the one in Neenah didn't meet my expectations. Still solid.

Zad, I agree Cranky Pat's is solid too!

Sammy's seems to be everywhere. Superior used to have one, but I think they shut down.

Been to the one in Neenah, but didn't impress me much.

Always been a fan of the Sammy's in Eau Claire.

My personal #1 is Wells Brothers in Racine, which is a bit underrated in the area all things considered. Bill's in Stevens Point is also pretty good.

If I am watching a Brewers game you can't go wrong with a good Pizza Ranch buffet!

Haven't had Ted's since I went to school in Menom, but I do recall it being good.

Another one I just remembered:

Borner Farm Project, Prescott. They're only open 1 night/week, during warmer weather months. General idea is they grow/raise all the ingredients, and cook one night a week on wood fire. People buy their pizzas and picnic on the farm. Only went once, and it was kind of silly in a way, as it sort of had a rock concert vibe to it if that makes sense. The pizza was ridiculously good though.

There's a Lou Malnati's opening in Brookfield this year. I know deep dish isn't everyone's cup of tea but their thin crust is really good.

I used to love MamaMia's on Burleigh but they closed. Their garlic bread was ridiculous.

Sluggo's in Brookfield has great pizza too for a bar. Pizza Man is solid as well.

Heine's Pizza in Minnesota Junction is pretty awesome. They have limited hours and are usually packed for being in the middle of nowhere.

Edit: Forgot about Chances in Burnett. They only have 2 pizza ovens, so if you go in there you usually have to wait it out with a few cold ones. Haven't had it in awhile since they dont have a softball tournament any longer.

Especially the Steve's in the 70's and 80's. I dream of that pizza!

Is Buck's pizza the same as Buck's Bar?

Growing up my favorite spot was Guido G's on the southside in Milwaukee, which closed years ago.

Favorite spots now, Maria's Pizza, Pizza Shuttle, Balistreri's
