Kevin was in charge of the pizza selection for our second week of our quest for the best pizza in Cincinnati. Kevin chose Chi-natti's since they do the "classic, thin crust" as well as a Chicago-style deep dish. The pepperoni was in the classic, thin crust style to make for fair judging. For the specialty pizza, Kevin opted for the Chicago style "meat freak" pizza. This time around, we began judging the pepperoni pizza overall and actually remembered to take pictures (the pepperoni pizza should look familiar...)

The overall, average ratings ended up being:

(1-5 scale, 1=worst, 5=best)
Appearance (overall): 4.17
Aroma (overall): 3.75
Taste (overall): 3.67
Crust - 3.5
Cheese - 3.83
Toppings - 3.5
Sauce - 4
Pepperoni Pizza (overall): 3.33
Specialty Pizza & Menu Options: 4.33
X-factor: 4

As you'll notice in the picture, the pepperoni we small, making "pepperoni grease boats" (a phrase coined by Nik). We all noticed that the crust on the deep dish was better than the thin crust - it had more flavor and was buttery and flaky whereas the thin crust wasn't anything special.
