Pizza in Minneapolis? Let's get serious....

James Lileks is a terrific writer, but when he writes a paragraph like this, you know he has spent too much of his life in the Middle West.

Disagree? Have any pizza recommendations worth driving across town to try? Want to defend that peculiar substance the New Yorkers call pizza, or get into a bitter slapping match over the merits of corn-based crust? Here you go.

James, sorry, if you want to talk pizza, start with Naples, not Minneapolis or even New York. But failing that, start with Nancy Silverton. And if you don’t know who she is – you’re disqualified from culinary discussion.
