Published: July 22, 2010 at 9:42 PMI voted for slices, bit I think it would depend on the pie. A really good pizza can only be eaten by the slice.
Published: July 23, 2010 at 1:48 AMI voted for the individual pie, but considering the quality of most amusement park pizza.....that's like standing in Wal-Mart and choosing between CDs by Justin Bieber and Hannah Montana.
Although if that's a picture of the actual pie you got, Robert, and I assume it is, it looks decent.
Everyone raves about Cesari's pizza at Knoebels, but it did nothing for me.
I may be be wrong, but I believe there used to be a Pizza Hut in a park I visited (maybe Dorney?) years ago.
Published: July 23, 2010 at 5:16 AMI went with the pie since I really haven't seen a slice being sold at a theme park. If anybody could point out if there is a theme park that does that, I would stand corrected.
On another thought, the pizza at SFGA is probably the best food/value there.
Published: July 23, 2010 at 5:19 AMI agree with Rick- a good pizza can only be eaten by the slice. I have never found the type of pizza I like as an individual pie. Mike's cd choice analagy is spot-on, though- considering all the pizza I've seen for sale at parks, it's really just the lesser of two evils.(Ok, I admit it, I'm a bit of a pizza snob...)
Published: July 23, 2010 at 6:18 AMI say slice, but like Mark, why get pizza at a theme park anyway.
Published: July 23, 2010 at 6:22 AMIndividual pie. More crust.
Published: July 23, 2010 at 7:08 AMKings Island still serves pizza by the slice. They use the LaRosa's Recipe which is a Cincinnati original.
For whatever reason, to me those really small individual pizzas don't taste as good as pieces from a big pie (regardless whether they are triangles or squares). Maybe a mental thing...
Published: July 23, 2010 at 7:41 AMI think it's a crust-to-cheese ratio thing. There's too much crust handle on an individual pie.
FWIW, I had a Giordano's stuffed spinach last night, so I've got pizza on the brain now.
Published: July 23, 2010 at 8:07 AMI voted for slices (based solely on Kringle's Cafe at Holiday World), but I'd prefer it if we didn't have to make a choice. Why can't a park offer both options? Have one location that sells by the slice and a different location that serves the individual pies...
Published: July 23, 2010 at 8:10 AMUniversal IOA sells pizza by the slice, It's actually quite good, but I must admit I love Universal parks so maybe it's just me.
Published: July 23, 2010 at 11:36 AMI'm definitly a pizza snob. If it isn't from the NY Metro Area then forget it. Only way I go that route is if a transplanted local from NY will attest to the quality of the pizza, other than that, I'm not traveling several hundred miles to eat something I can get at my local Chuck E. Cheese. Oh and I chose a slice in the poll :)
Published: July 23, 2010 at 10:15 AMI voted for individual pies as I understand the speed and supply needs for a Theme Park are different than a regular hole in the wall restaurant. By the slice usually isn't that much better... like Pizza Port in Tomorrowland.
However, I agree that NY Style Pizza is the best! I've only found two places in San Diego that have NY quality Pizza in NY Style... Bronx Pizza and Pizzeria Luigi's. Anything else is just not good enough. But I'm not against Pizza & Beer places like Pizza Port in Carlsbad/ Solana Beach, etc. Chicago Style isn't bad either.
Published: July 23, 2010 at 10:53 AMI voted slice mostly because they are likely to have more topping compared to crust than a little pie
Published: July 23, 2010 at 12:01 PMSFGAM used to have great pizza by the slice at Firehouse pizza, before they brought in the crappy pizza from Papa Johns. At a theme park it is very hard to find decent pizza, and at a park I perfer single slice pizza as the pies have way too much crust and very little cheese.
Published: July 23, 2010 at 2:43 PMagree with the comment about King's Island pizza. It was really good the time i was there. Kings Dominion also used to have good pizza and they sold it by the slice.
Published: July 24, 2010 at 6:43 AMAll theme park pizza I've had is simply awful. They could make it in the shape of Glenn Beck making out with Rosie O'Donnel as long as it tastes good.
Published: July 24, 2010 at 9:34 AMby the freakin' slice of course!!!
Pizza by the slice from a theme park conjures up mammoth, cheesy, foot-long, dripping over a soaky crust-- NEW YORK big pizza. You don't get that much goodness in a personal pizza.
Published: July 26, 2010 at 4:55 AMwow its actually gone 50/50
