Pizza in Charlotte

Recently I've had the opportunity to go to two Charlotte area Pizza shops. The first one was Fuel Pizza Cafe. I had read a lot about it and how it has won all these "best of" awards but I have to tell you that I was disappointed. I went there with a friend and we ordered a Jerk chicken Pizza. We both just ate one slice and that was it. I don't know if it was just that kind of pizza or what. The next time I go there, I'll try a more traditional pizza. We also ordered their buffalo wings. The wings themselves weren't that bad but the Blue cheese that came with it was terrible. I asked for a ranch dressing instead and it was just as bad. The other place I went to was called Ice Cream and Pizza Works. It's located in Lancaster Co. SC on 521 just across the NC border,which is only a few miles from Ballantyne. This place had some good pizza. Probably some of the best that I've had in a while. It's owned by some 19 year old pizza whiz kid(see the article link) and he does a really good job. The garlic bread was great, I nearly filled up on it and didn't have room for the pizza! But I have to say that the buffalo wings here were really bad. I scanned a copy of the menu if anyone wants to email me. But they serve typical items, pizza, subs, pasta's and calzones. Oh, and ice cream.
