Longboard Legends Pizza The Best Pizza Restaurant In Kona Hawaii
Pizza is a dish of Neapolitan origin and cuisine, made with an oven-baked, flat, generally round bread that is often covered with tomatoes or a tomato-based sauce and mozzarella cheese. Other toppings are added according to region, culture, or personal preference.
I started wondering, is my taste in pizza completely skewed especially after trying Longboard Legends Pizza restaurant in Kailua Kona, Hawaii?? My preference is probably closest to a NY-style pizza from the pizza restaurants, a crispy charred but softly pliable crust, not too much sauce, more emphasis on cheese, cheese that drips off the sides of the slice, where it makes a stretchy mess as you pull your slice away from the pie, so much that you have to ravel it up. An outer crust that is crispy but still bread-like and bubbly, that I don’t mind finishing off with them. (I hate being left with hard crackers at the end).
It’s the kind of pizza that I would get late night at college, or at the cool teenage hang out after school, usually a pizza restaurant that doesn’t have much decor, but the charm of fluorescent lights, a TV with the game on, and Italian guys loudly busting on each other behind the counter. I’ve usually been able to get this type of pizza at any nearby pizza restaurant.
A lot of the pizza restaurant recommendations I’ve gotten were places with super thin crusts, a restrained scattering of cheese, and skinny slices. Is this what’s considered “good”? I saw a lot of reviews that complained about overly oily, overly cheesy pizza, which to me, is part of the nostalgia of eating pizza. So out of curiosity, what is it that makes a good pizza to you? A clean simple sauce or super garlicky sauce? More sauce than cheese, or more cheese than sauce? Cracker-thin crusts or crusts with some air bubbles? Floppy fold-able slices or perky and straight?
