Food find: More subpar pizza

Alas, I tried again to get pizza outside of Chicago. I was out and about socializing on Fourth Avenue enjoying some celebrating with friends. But I was starving and someone suggested pizza, so we trekked over to Brooklyn Pizza Company, which is on Fourth Avenue between Fifth and Sixth streets.

It's a cute little shop with outdoor seating and an industrial feel to the interior. You can buy whole pizzas or by the slice and they deliver. I ordered a slice of cheese and slide into the stainless steel bar. I waited for a bit while I watched the busy pizza people toss up up giant pizza pies and got served up this cheese slice.

They get an A for effort -- the crust was pretty good. But overall, it tasted like something I could have made from frozen. I ate it because my tummy told me too, but my tastebuds weren't happy about it. It wasn't even true New York style because I couldn't fold over the slice.

So my search for decent non-Chicago pizza continues.

I don't know if Z's (or Zachary's) is still in business by the University, but I would be curious what a Chicago-raised palate thinks of it.

I'm originally from Milwaukee so I feel your pain. Luckily I found Rocco's http://www.roccoslittlechicago.com/

Have you tried it?
