Tasting Intown Pizza: Seven slices of heaven

heavenly sliceI remember the first time a classmate told me that they didn’t like pizza, I could hardly believe it. Everyone loves pizza! Despite being an incredibly picky eater as a child, I have always had a soft spot for the Italian classic. Thin crust or thick crust, sicilian or pan, it’s rare to come across a pizza I don’t like. Atlanta has a variety of beloved and respected neighborhood pizza joints, each with their own personality and following. In this series, I tasted and photographed pizzas from some of my favorite local spots.
