Summertime and the living's easy...and hot. Who wants to cook this time of year? Being on the run whenever we're not at work...or even at work...we want something to eat that's easy and has a lot of flavor. Something that could just feed one person or a whole family and can be made to order. What's my favorite go to when I want something fast and easy and oh so tasty? PIZZA!
I love pizza. When I was a kid, I ate at Sorrento's Pizza located on Williamsbridge Road in the Bronx. To me, there was nothing like Sorrento's Pizza and I loved the price - for two bucks, I could get a slice and an RC cola. For fifty cents more, I could get a Sicilian slice and an RC. Sicilian was as far as I pushed the label back then.
Then I got older and fell in love with Frank's Pizza. Located on East Tremont Avenue, these guys did everything right. They had great tasting pizza - I loved their pepperoni and their Sicilian was to die for. Working in Manhattan, I began to eat at pizzarias that liked to experiment - I started eating slices with spinach, broccoli and more.
Now, when I want some pizza, I head out to Fratelli's in Piscataway for regular slices, pepperoni slices, white slices and more. They have some great pizza, but for more variety, I head out to Dunellen to Guillo's where they really experiment with their pies. You can get broccoli white, eggplant parm, buffalo chicken, white, tortellini, honey mustard chicken, chicken parm, BLT, garden slices, Hawaiian, and more. You can get Sicilian out here, but there is nothing like Bronx Sicilian to be found anywhere around here, so I've given up trying.
So, what I want to know is where you guys go to get a great slice of pizza, what kind of pizza you like (deep dish, thin crust, regular) and what kind of toppings you like on your pizza?
In a couple of weeks, we will be posting an article about pizza at G-POP.net, including answers posted here using whatever name you would like us to use as your handle. Thanks in advance for your help!
