Best Non-thin-crust Pizza

Blue Line

415 E. Campbell Ave., Campbell. Thin crust, Neapolitan-style pizzas are enjoying a wave of popularity but there are plenty of fans of Chicago-style thick-crust pizza. Campbell's Blue Line pizza, owned by Saratoga High grad Angela Yen, became an instant hit when it opened this winter.

A Slice of New York

1253 W. El Camino Real, Sunnyvale; 3443 Stevens Creek Blvd., San Jose. If thin-crust, Neapolitan-style pizza is the trend du jour, then A Slice of New York is decidedly untrendy. The generous application of cheese and sauce and thick supporting crust separate it from the rest.
