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.
