How to help others find the perfect slice ๐Ÿ•

Iโ€™m a native New Yorker, so I have a lot of feelings about pizza. But I know not everyone has the same preferences. Some people love a thick crust with a sauce thatโ€™s heavy on the herbs. Others would rather bite into a thin crust covered in a simple sauce. Then, there are the people who believe a Hawaiian slice is always the way to go.


My perfect slice might be your least favorite. The same goes for just about any dish. Thatโ€™s why itโ€™s so helpful to include specific details whenever you review a meal.


But today, Iโ€™m focused on pizza. Keep these tips in mind next time you review a slice.

Mention the style

Neapolitan. New York-style. Sicilian. Deep dish. These are just a few of the many different styles of pizza you can try.


Be descriptive about ingredientsโ€”and how it was baked  

Include details about the sauce, cheese, and any toppings you tried. Describe the crust. Was it crunchy or soft? How was the bake? Under, over, or somewhere in between? You may also want to mention the kind of ovenโ€”convection, brick, or deck, to name a fewโ€”used.

The pie has mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, and a few pieces of basil on it. (Local Guide Gianni Lupo)Don't just write that a pie or the place you ordered it from is โ€œgoodโ€ or โ€œbadโ€

Keep in mind that people reading your reviews donโ€™t know your preferences. Instead of writing that you thought a meal was โ€œgoodโ€ or โ€œbad,โ€ share specific details that explain why you liked or disliked it.


Describe the atmosphere

Some pizza places have a grab-and-go atmosphere while others feature large dining rooms. Add details about tables, crowds, music, and anything else that may be useful for others to know before they go.

Include helpful information for people with dietary restrictions

More and more restaurants are adding gluten-free or vegan options to their menus. Notice a place offers alternatives for people with restricted diets? Mention this in your review.

Thanks @AriMar Very nice pizza photos and a fun post. It's sure to make you hungry. Here's my contribution to the pizza post. The photo is of a 16" plain mozzarella cheese and tomato, no frills, thin crust, coal fired pizza, which is my favorite kind. The thinner the better. The restaurant is "Brooklyn's Coal-Burning Brick-Oven Pizzeria", although it is located in Hackensack, New Jersey. 

Regards, Koby


For those interested, here's the link to my review of the restaurant:

Thank you for sharing these tips, @AriMar!

I have made several pizza reviews and I mainly write about the type and how much cheese they have, among other things. I have never mentioned the atmosphere, so thank you for pointing that out to us โ˜บ๏ธ

IMG_20170707_205252.jpgThe RaptorIt is interesting you talk about "slice" in particular @AriMar in my travels around the world, it is usual to get an entire pizza which I've seen Americans refer to as "Pie". There are smaller vendors in Australia (such as Crust) who do sell by the slice but mostly you get the entire pizza unless you're buying from a food truck. Our toppings vary enormously. My favourite is one called the Raptor which has mozzarella, bocconcini, fresh tomato, tomato sauce, prawns, chinese sausage, hot salami, basil, red onion and of course hairy fish (anchovies). 

I generally like a bread crust pizza which is thick and soft. My partner Chris prefers a thin crust something like crisp bread. This means we rarely share a pizza but always get our own.


I also love pizza with fresh ingredients added after the cook such as tomato, basil, coriander (cilantro) and parsley.


Here are a few examples of other excellent pizza I've had.20131213_201019.jpgFat Tony's / San FranciscoIMG_20170313_134024.jpgPure South / MelbourneIMG_20161214_184727.jpgSantoni Pizza and Bar / Melbourne
