“Good Thin Crust Pizza”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

True, traditional Chicago pizza is probably the deep dish, and Paul 's pizza is thin crust, but it is just excellent.

For a bargain, go there for the lunch all-you - can eat buffet. They also have meatballs, pasta and salad on the buffet.

I used to think that Marion's in Dayton Ohio could not be beat for thin crust pizza, but Paul's in Clearwater is a close rival and may actually be better (I really like the sausage Paul's uses).

It looks very plain and un inviting on the outside as it is in a typical shopping center along with a grocery and several other small businesses. But if you are searching for really good thin crust Pizza, I think you will be very pleased.

“Not sure why my pizza wasn't as good as the raves below....”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

I am a native Italian-descent Chicagoan, having lived there for over 20 years. And I love thin-crust pizza. In Chicago, at least on the North Side, pizza joints have a tendency to put olive oil on top of the pizza (or let the grease rise to the top...that's how it looks)...and it is DELICIOUS.

I got a thin crust pizza that had sausage on it. The sausage was more like mini-meatballs. Though, tasty, I don't want the sausage taking up more real estate in my mouth than the pizza itself. Strike 1. The sauce had virtually no flavor. Strike 2. And there was nothing Chicago-style about the pizza...it was like any other pizza that you could get from a chain. Strike 3.

Not unnoticed was a full display of pennants of Chicago sports teams (including the defunct Chicago Sting)....but not one item of the Blackhawks?!? This hockey fan disapproved.
