They made a mistake in not adding square pizza in independence and as far as I’m concerned Waldo pizza has gone so far down hill that it shouldn’t be included in the top 25. Damn shame too

Waldo pizza is a little salty for me, their sauce isn't that good either. Haven't had the others except Minsky's I think it's the best out of the ones I've had.

The pizza at Helen's JAD bar is better than Minsky's and Waldo. Have not tried the others.
