Anyone who's ever met a native New Yorker knows how passionate they are about their pizza. While Chicago boasts a deep dish-styled crust, the Big Apple produces a thin crust take on the Italian delicacy. Either way, bring up pizza and you're sure to have a heated discussion on which city, restaurant and style is the best.

While Anthrax's Scott Ian and Charlie Benante were at Noisecreep's Los Angeles studios last month, we asked the thrash pioneers about their favorite pizza joints. Since Ian is from Queens and Benante the Bronx (now a Chicago resident), we knew they would have plenty to say about the subject. As you'll see below, we were right.
