Only once in my life have I had a real NYC pizza. It was in New York and honestly I didn’t really like it. Sorry all you New Yorkers out there. I was in the city on business for 2 weeks and visited a lot of places and had some fabulous food, but the pizza was not fabulous. So long story short, we move now to Este.
I grew up in the Southwest. I am from extreme Southern CA, UT and AZ and have spent an equal amount of time in each state. About 12 or 13 years. I have only had Western Pizza from the low of the low (Peter Piper) to the best of the best (hmmmmmm?). Este ranks at the top, but it is it the best? How the heck would I know???? Apparently, from the noise others make, I wouldn’t since I am from the Southwest. What I do know is that I love Este.
The pizza here is fabulous! I didn’t know it was a crime to order pineapple until I came here… The crust is thin, but not soggy or too crisp and the toppings are fresh and flavorful. I love all that I have tried so far.
Often times I try to take a full day off from selling Real Estate. Yes, a full day with my phone off. It doesn’t always happen. Anyway, when I do I go to Este for Pizza and beer at lunch. I love it and it is a traddition for me. My wife doesn’t like pizza (shudder). So I do the bachelor thing and it is great!
Who am I to judge a pizza though? I am from CaliUtAz….
