delicious Cambridge pizza crawl

Last night 2 friends and I did a pizza crawl to 4 spots in Cambridge that are known to serve good pizza. First up was Oggi in Harvard Square where we split a plain slice and a "green salad" slice which was basically a Greek Salad piled on a plain slice. The plain was very good, and the salad slice was amazing. It's a thick crust and was perfectly doughy - chewy where it counts and crispy where it counts. I prefer buying pizza by the slice because they re-heat it up for you and get the bottom of the crust extra crispy. Then we went to Veggie Planet and shared a Lunch For Henry. There was loads of goat cheese melting all over the place, and not too much squash. Not very pizza-like but very good and I'll go back to try other stuff. 3rd up was Stone Hearth Pizza in Porter where we split a small pizza, half Farm Fresh and half Bacon and Blue on wheat crust. The server took pity on us (not realizing we were in the middle of a crawl) and increased the size of our pizza and added some toppings I think. The farm fresh had too many olives for me, and I learned that I don't like pizza with bacon on it, so this stop was kinda a bust for me, but I'd go back and try other stuff. The crust was excellent. The root beer was also excellent. Last stop was Zing where we shared 2 odd shaped slices of Augustus Classicus and Blue October. Both tasted under-seasoned, especially the Classicus, and the Blue October was very blue-cheesy - too much for my friends but I love the stuff so I was happy.
I think we spent about $12 each including tips. My favorite was Oggi.

Our next crawl is going to be a sushi/chef's choice crawl, probably around Coolidge Corner to hit up Tsunami, Fugakyu and maybe Mr. Sushi.
