Famous Ray Bono Pizza: "...And I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."

You wanna know one of the recipes to make me complain? Take something I dislike already and combine it with something else that I think sucks. "Famous Ray" + "Bono" = F this whole endeavor. And it's not poor Ray's fault that his last name is the same as the first name of the smuggest fucking guy on the planet, but it is unfortunately all I could think of approaching this place. And skiing accidents.

This slice was a fucking mess. The dough was flat and dense like kosher pizza. The overly sweet sauce was more than plentiful, rendering it a total Pizza In A Cup. Phoebe said the sauce reminded her of Domino's. She also said she was hopeful that the slice was good, "because they've been around for awhile."
"Yeah," Greta chimed in, "and look at the ceiling!" And pointed up at the beautiful wood ceiling that's probably been on that building since the 1800s. Sadly the pizza is totally bunk.

This entry is short and sweet, and should've been here yesterday, but I've spent the last 30 hours working tirelessly on the damn issue 1 of Slice Harvester, the zine and couldn't slow my roll to update Slice Harvester, the blog. I've just gotta finish up the front cover and then we're DONE! It'll probably be out by the end of the month, but obviously, I'll keep the internet posted.


  1. "....first name of the smuggest fucking guy on the planet, "
    It might be STING, Bono is a close second.

  2. The other day I was at Vinnie's and I got a plain slice and it was pretty good so I decided to get another one but the second slice came from a new pizza so they didn't put it back in the oven before giving it to me. The second slice was about half as good as the first one and the experience reminded me of something I read on here about fresh slices lacking crisp. The moral of the story is that from now on I will always ask for a lil reheat on dat shit.

  3. This is all true, but the pizza man here looks more like Danny Aiello than any other pizza man I've ever seen and that's gotta count for something, right?
