"For my adult life I have always appreciated (I hated pizza as a kid until I turned 12 - crazy) all styles of pizza "

I really liked the Ledo's Pizza when I lived in Maryland, with six kinds of meat on top. Delicious. Type of a place you'd go into on Thanksgiving and see a whole extended family playing Pinochle at a table. "Ledo's Pizza is square, because Ledo's never cuts corners." That was their tag line.
World's going to hell, they have a web site now. ledopizza.com
