A friend of mine will be in town and claims to be a "pizza snob"?!?!? I need suggestions from others who might share his err....fetish.
-Definitely NOT deep dish...cutlery is forbidden
-Crust must not require folding but also be thin. Edges should be puffy with bonus points for air poufs.
-Crust and sauce is more important than the cheese which should not be goopy and greasy
-Extra bonus points if bottles of Bud are available
He's from the East Coast if that helps.
Forgot to add....must still be tasty eaten cold the next morning (:

Hmmm, I wouldn't go with 2 amy's. It doesn't sound like what you're looking for. The pizzas at 2 amy's are good... but the center of the pizzas are wet (which tends to happen with Neopolitan pizzas). I can't pick them up and have to use a fork and knife. Haven't found pizza in DC that would be worthy of a pizza snob you are describing.

Menomale in Brookland is the best pizza I have had in DC. Authentic italian ingredients make it well worth your time. http://menomale.us/

2 Amy's has a great rep. My personal current favorite is Haven in Bethesda. Wonderful New Haven style. Definitely no utensils.

Not 2amys. It is good but not what your friend is looking for as kk noted. Pete's might work qualify.

I would say maybe Pete's for what you're looking for, or possibly Vace in Cleveland Park. Vace is take out only, so you could pick up a pizza and take it home to enjoy with some bottles of Bud.

H & Pizza meets all of those qualifications regarding the pizza. They do not have Budweiser, but they do have a few other beers that are all under $5.

sounds like a difficult house guest - you might want to take them to the bus station......

Pete's or Vace should fit the bill. (Personally, I consider Menomale the best, but it's not what your friend wants.) While he's here, please work on him about his taste in beer. That's far more in need of snobbery than his pizza preferences.

As a pizza snob from NY, in my opinion you have two options. The best pizza is at Valentino's which is out in Shirlington. If you have a car it is worth the ride out there. If you want to stay in town then Pete's is the way to go for sure.

as also someone else from the east coast who knows that type of pizza your friend is looking for (hopefully), i would go to pete's.

Ive been in DC for 5 years. it is quite well known in DC that the pizza SUCKS. Just like florida (FL has has shitty bagels, bread and pastries) the water quality and agriculture is to blame. Same as DC, the forumla of the doughs are just not as sexy compared to New York Pies, Italy or Chicago...etc pizza regions. Water and food quality is to blame.
The most decent kinda good places in DC are:
1. Petes Pizza 2. 2Amys 3. Moroni
If you like super thin crust: Flippin Pizza or Vace
Semi-Decent Pizza: Mama Lucias, Ellas Wood Fire Pizza, Coppis Organic, Graffiato, Vapiano, Sorriso
If you want your friend to take one bite of pizza in disgust and never come back to visit you, take him to: Bolis, Italian Pizza Kitchen, Manny and Olgas, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Jumbo Slice, Matchbox, Ledo, Comet Ping Pong, Pi Truck, Pizzeria Paradiso, Kavanaghs Pizza Pub, Duccini's, New Citipizza, Besta Pizza, DC Slices, Pizzolis
