Wine and dine Wednesdays: Everyone in D.C. has the best pizza in D.C.

There aren't just passable pizza options in this city - there are also plenty of terrible ones. Maybe it tastes like cardboard and ketchup (Papa John's at the Verizon Center) or a large sponge smeared in sauce (Jumbo Slice). Maybe it's the only thing in your neighborhood and you still don't go (Al's Gourmet Pizza).

Or maybe once, while in college (which excuses this a little), you ordered a delivery of a pie from Manny & Olga's, a local chain with one satellite location in Sparks, Nevada (?). When the pie came with a cigarette butt baked into it, you were grossed out and appalled, so you called Manny & Olga's to yell at them. When they offered to send over another pizza, you accepted and ate the replacement. That entire pizza cost you $5.

Based on my personal experience and informal survey of people I know, Manny & Olga's is the clear winner of this non-award for the worst pizza in D.C.
