This is another topic for another day, but I think he nailed the last one on that list.

There was one additional thing on Portnoy's list that he considers to be great. Check out this video, which was posted to his Facebook page on Monday night, to see for yourself:

The last item on his list of greatness is the hangover cake from DeFazio's Pizza in Troy. For long-time followers of Portnoy, and his One Bite Pizza Review series, this declaration shouldn't come as a surprise.

That wasn't the only pizza that Portnoy sampled during his brief stop in Albany:

We'll keep an eye out for a possible pizza review video for Prima Pizzeria. Who knows, maybe Prima will be the next addition to his list of greatness.
