Alabama Pizza Culture

Jenn Sit | Jun 16, 2009 06:55 PM

I'm writing a piece on pizza in Alabama and am looking for any opinions or information on the matter.

I know of Frank Stitt's Bottega Favorita cafe and have learned of a few other artisinal pizzerias that already exist (like Bettola) or are opening in Birmingham, but I'm also very interested in the "neighborhood slice guy"--if that even exists.

Are there regional preferences or local toppings (thick crust vs. thin, BBQ or other local seasonal toppings?) Are there places worth mentioning beyond the Papa Johns and Pizza Huts? Thanks!
