If you're really trying to live it up while you're at college, you must know that living the quintessential university lifestyle requires eating a lot of pizza.
Predictably, Gainesville accommodates when it comes to pizza places, but how to decide? Do you go for the chain restaurant or the independent pizzeria? Thick crust or thin? Should you opt for the quick and cheap, or splurge on the specialty pie?
Don?t fret. We here at the Alligator, being the devoted, giving people we are, did all the hard work for you and personally tested eight of the most popular places in town to get a slice of cheese pizza.
The corresponding "pie charts" tell you on a scale of one to five what we thought of each place, based on the pie?s taste, how good the crust is, the experience we had ordering the pizza (such as how long it took to get it, the restaurant ambience, etc.), greasiness factor (a score of one being not greasy at all and five being that it will turn most paper products clear), price (one being cheap, five breaking the bank) and the pizza overall.
We know everyone has their personal preferences, but we know our pizza, so feel free to use this as a go-to guide the next time you?re craving a pie.
