    Seriously? You left out Alibi? I haven’t tried 3 of these places but I can say without a doubt that Alibi is better than Papa Romano’s (I do like Papa Romano’s but Alibi is fantastic). These lists are always dubious and yet I keep clicking on them.

  2. Larry Smola says:

    Please….Alibi Lounge has been the best pizza in Troy since it was a converted farmhouse….yes I’m THAT old :P All are very good, but cannot hold a candle to Alibi.
