    I'm sure everyone will agree and there will be no argument whatsoever.

    If it is authentic Italian, I bet it is. Haven't tried it yet, though. I'm sure it is the same with others, but really depends on what you're in the mood for.

    Have eaten there several times when in Ames. Unique woodfired pizza. My wife and I have enjoyed it every time. Price is right too.

    I heard some people were there just eating pizza and minding their own business when a volcano erupted and buried their whole town in super-hot volcanic ash.

    Re: Vesuvius pizza= best pizza in Ames?

    Never had it - headed out there in a couple weeks, might have to give it a try.
    Black Market is pretty good if you don't mind a wait, Casey's hits the spot, but when we were students - Jeff's Pizza usually won because it was close and we had coupons.

    Tried Great Plains our freshman year based on all the raves and actually didn't like it at al :-\

    Great Plains is good, but its so f'n doughy. I wish they would make a deep dish there, I feel like they could have a good Gino's type of pizza.

    Re: Vesuvius pizza= best pizza in Ames?

    Vesuvius is ok, but i prefer Great Plains and Jeff's to them. But i'm not a huge fan of vesuvius's style of pizza, so its kind of a what kind of pizza do you prefer thing.
