#97 Reginelli’s, New Orleans (Classic Combo)

New Orleans is known for its gumbo and po’boys, but in 1996 the city was introduced to a soon-to-be local favorite with the opening of Reginelli’s Pizzeria. Darryl Reginelli and Bruce Erhardt offer a varied menu that includes much more than pizza, but the pies are what keep people coming back. "The goal of Reginelli’s Pizzeria was to add some variety and sense of humor to the New Orleans 'eating out' experience," according to their website. Customers start with either a 14- or 10-inch pie and can build from scratch what they want for their ideal pizza. Reginelli’s offers nearly 35 toppings, among them: black olives, roasted garlic, artichokes, eggplant, goat cheese, gorgonzola, chicken, portobellos, and pancetta. If that’s too many for you to choose from, go with the Classic Combo (marinara sauce, pepperoni, mozzarella, white onion, mushrooms, green pepper, black olives, and Italian sausage).
