A couple of weeks ago I read the letter sent from Favilla’s Pizza regarding a blind taste test involving them and the winners of the Best of WNC [“To Be the Best, You Must Compete With the Best,” Oct. 17]. I have had Favilla’s and they are good. However, my favorite pie in the Asheville area is hands-down Papa’s Pizza on New Leicester Highway.
The crust is incredible, offering the perfect mix of doughy softness and crunchy goodness. The cheese is like a warm blanket of Oh Yeah! They also have excellent specialty pizzas, such as the Mediterranean Chicken and the Philly Cheesesteak.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to drum up another local debate in the letters. All I ask is that if you decide to conduct a taste test as was previously mentioned you must include Papas'!
