People toss around the phrase “hidden jewel” probably too often. This little place may well be just that. The make all of their own crust and bread as well as cheesecakes and gelato. This time around we didn’t have room for desert but there is always another time.

We noticed this place some time back when we went to “Some Guys Pizza”; which is about one block away.Its proximatey to “Some Guys” may be the reason it isn’t that well know. It has been around since 1999 and Pat and I have never heard of it. It isn’t a “sexy” joint with a wood or coal-fired oven. It doesn’t offer duck confit or organic kale toppings. It is just a little Pizza joint that offers a good pie at a good price.

Naturally when you go to a Pizza place you need to overload on carbs so we ordered some garlic bread for $5.00. It comes with your choice of 2 sauces. We opted for red sauce and garlic & butter.

The bread had a good flavor and a nice chew to it. The red sauce was very good with a touch of sweet. The fingers don’t come with it.

Pat’s critique of the crust was correct. I don’t think olive oil before hand would have necessarily fixed the issue. However a brushing with some would have given it a sheen and an extra luscious mouth feel. My personal pie was the same way. I,however like the slight char. As long as the crust stays soft. This crust was soft and stayed soft sitting in Pat’s car and on my kitchen counter for about 5 hours,in a go box.

My pie was a two topping one. Black olives and anchovy. I really like that combo. Both pies were under 8 bucks. A single $7.20 and a double for $7.90. The crusts we got are called their original thin crust. They also have a really thin crust if that is your taste; as well as a deep dish.

I am with Pat about the calzone. I am going to get one, maybe to go. That way I can try some cheese cake and gelato.

  1. I’d like some calzones more if the crust were softer. Our Cugino’s makes great calzones. When it comes to pizza, I prefer the thin and crispy, even slightly charred πŸ™‚

    • This crust,as thick as it was was nice and soft. Not Wonder bread mushy just soft with a bit of resistance. I like thin and crisp sometimes and thick other times I would imagine their calzones will be good because of the dough. Also they cover them with more sauce and cheese. Gawd I am getting hungry now.

  2. The garlic bread does look nice and chewy! So black olives and anchovies, huh? Can’t say I’ve ever had those two together. And under $10, a steal. I’m a music person, so bad (or no) music can ruin my restaurant experience. Having oldies playing in the background would have gone a long way toward making my brain happy as well as my mouth! Do you like the pizza leftovers cold the next morning?

    • I love cold pizza. When I lived in Vegas I used to order pizza delivery from Tropicana Pizza. Buy 1 get 1. Had dinner,breakfast and sometimes lunch.I know anchovy and olive sounds strange but consider it as tapenade with a crust. I am all in on your music note. No music makes me want to leave as soon as I finish eating. Bad music makes me want to not even order.
