Alright, I have been living in Wakefield in the Greenwood area right near Melrose and Saugus for a year now. I have put up a great fight, but it seems that I have been defeated in trying to find good pizza, save for Papa Ginos in Melrose. I have never lived in a place where papa gino's is the best pizza around. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! Just so you can have an idea of the type of pizza i like: Sal's is the benchmark for me for takeout pizza. I also like Bertucci's style Neopolitan brick oven pizza (have eaten it in Naples a couple of times). But for average night pizza takeout- I like Sal's style or Papa Ginos. Here are the places i have tried:
baccis in Saugus: I have gotten the sicilian a few times. the crust is great, the cheese is nice and melty and the toppings are good. The sauce, however, taste like absolutely NOTHING. No flavor whatsoever, which in turn makes the pizza taste like NOTHING.
Greenwood house of pizza in Wakefield- Meh.
Mothers in Melrose- Meh greek style pizza.
Melrose House of Pizza- Nasty
Toody's- Meh. seems more like frozen pizza than fresh made.
Prince Pizza on Route 1- Nasty- dumbfounded at how this place is so popular!
