I Know Real Pizza 

Pin It
Maria Condor doesn’t know jack about real pizza [“Top Whatever,” Letters, Oct. 21, City Weekly]. The Pie is OK for what it is, but it doesn’t serve what we native Northeasterners would ever call real pizza. Pineapple and sourdough? No way!

Many Utah places claim to serve “New York style” pizza, but none do: The sauce, dough and cheese mix are wrong. It’s a real pizza desert out here, or so I thought until I tried Este.

My first time at Este, I warned the owner I wanted real pizza. When he served it, my experienced eyes and nose recognized the unique look and smell of real pizza. And the taste? I took a cautious bite, fearing yet another disappointment. The owner waited for the verdict ... bravo! I found the oasis— real pizza at last (of the Coney Island sub-variety). And, as my discriminating Northeastern friends agree, this is the only place in Utah with real pizza.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
