SALT LAKE CITY — “Are you sick of pizza yet?”
If I had a dollar for every person who has asked me that about my Wasatch Front Pizza Tour, I’d have enough money to buy several pizzas.
Ten weeks and 10 pizzerias later, there are a few things I know for certain:
First, Utah has a plethora of pizzerias. Ten weeks really only allowed me to scratch the surface of even what Salt Lake City alone has to offer, let alone the rest of the Wasatch Front and Utah.
Second, Utahns are passionate about their pizza. I’ve written hundreds of articles about a variety of topics, but never have I received more reader feedback than with these pizza reviews.
Third, I enjoy pizza just as much as when I started.
So which of the 10 places is the winner?
If you are familiar with any two of the three, you know each of these six-slice restaurants is very different from the others.
Settebello focuses on authentic Neapolitan-style pizza and high-quality ingredients, and it shows. The Pie is consistently a local favorite and has a go big or go home style. Both should be added to any pizza lover’s must-visit list.
But in the end, Gabor Brothers — the eclectic gem tucked in a small building on Layton’s Main Street — is the pizza I can’t stop talking about and the winner of the Wasatch Front Pizza Tour. One bite of Gabors’ Main Street Combo was all it took for me to be sold on the restaurant
The crust — made from fresh dough, according to the waitress — was heavenly. The outer crust was light and airy on the inside but tougher on the outside, and the seasoning made it taste more like a breadstick than crust.
