NY style Pizza in Portland

So who has the best pizza in Portland? Looking for everyone else's ideas, but here are mine. I am looking for NY style, thin crust, good taste. Please post the nouvelle, asparagas and feta posts to a different thread.

Tributes (used to be Richie B's.)
NW 23rd and the "J" street, forget the name
Not bad. The thin crust is usually pretty good, crust is well baked, and sauce has a good flavor. The problem is when you order it by the slice, sometimes it sits there for a long time before you order it. Just a little hole in the wall, but the people there are always pretty friendly.

NW 23rd and about Hoyt or so
Pizza is pretty good. In my opinion Tribute's is better when it is fresh, but this place seems to move more pizza, so it doesn't seem to sit as long. Crust is usually well baked, and sauce is good.
I don't really care for the staff there- there seems to be a right and wrong way to order pizza here (sort of like Soup Nazi on Seinfeld). I usually don't go there because of this problem.

(Burnside at 10th)
Rocco's is my least favorite of the three, primarily because of the thickness of the crust (I don't like thick, pastry kind of crust). The cheese is not of the quality of the other two places, and the sauce occasionally has a bitter taste to it. Still, not too bad.
