    It's sweet, and I think it's the kind of pizza you have to grow up with to like. And they have such a loyal following that introducing something different always comes with risk.

    In truth, I'd rather go to Deweys than LaRosas (Trying to get this thread back on track). I've been making my own pizza for over 25 years and I'd rank Dewey's as about the best in Cincinnati.

    I would second this. It is by far the best pizza I've ever had. The crust is fabulous. And they'll split the pizza down the middle if one of you want one kind and the other another, including half red sauce, half oil or white sauce. Their salads are great too. Yum.

    LaRosa's is bad. The first time I had it was at the ball park a few years ago. I couldn't finish the piece that I bought. The next year, we were driving around looking for a place to eat and came across an actual LaRosa's restaurant. Thinking maybe it was just a bad experience at the ball park, we went ahead and gave it another chance. What a waste.

    I always felt like the sauce tasted like Ketchup.

    Lots of people do love it though.
