Letter to the Editor: BHOP, Cappy’s not the only pizza joints in Boston

I don’t think I’ve seen anything more ridiculous than the All Hail about Boston pizza not being good (“Only Buffalo gets pizza right,” Feb. 8).

I’ll begin by agreeing that the pizza at BHOP and Cappy’s is crap. It’s nothing more than greased-up sub-shop fare. However, to use these two as supporting evidence is completely insane. How can you validate your argument when you’re using two places within steps of each other?

Filth and food aren’t limited to Buffalo. All you have to do is go to Little Steve’s House of Pizza on Boylston Street. The place draws crowds until their closing time of 3 a.m. It might have something to do with their food.

If you want great pizza in a sanitary environment, go to Pizzeria Regina in the North End. I don’t know how you can write something about Boston pizza without mentioning one of its oldest brick-oven institutions. Regina has been around since 1926 and is still going strong.

There are a lot more than these two. Try Upper Crust on Beacon Hill. It received the Improper Bostonian’s

“Best Pizza” award for a reason. The pizza is delicious. In addition, the place has a lot of different, funky combinations including a special slice of the day. You won’t be disappointed.

I’m not going to belabor my point, but some other good places include Bertucci’s, Crazy Dough’s, Il Mondo, Pizza Pie-er, T. Anthony’s and Halftime Pizza. Since you’re a freshman, it’s understandable that you don’t know any better. But next time you try to disrespect Boston, make sure you’ve traveled farther than Hunting-ton and Forsyth.
