I love pizza as much as the next person. Maybe more. But others make much better pizza than I do, so I'll go out for pizza on National Pizza Pie Day, February 9th. We have three favorite pizza places nearby--Golden Crown Panaderia, Old Town Pizza Parlor, and Farina Pizzeria. They're all great but slightly different.
Golden Crown Panaderia makes a thick crust pizza with lots of topping options. While you can get a Hawaiian pizza with pineapple and Canadian bacon, you should also try the blue cornmeal crust pizza with green chile and sausage or pepperoni.
Old Town Pizza Parlor also makes a thicker crust pizza, and the dough is just a little sweeter, making for a different and interesting flavor. Build your own pizza by choosing among four different sauces and lots of topping ingredients. The lunch buffet is served daily from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., so you can sample a little of everything--salads, pasta, and different sauces as well as pizza by the slice. They now offer a gluten-free pizza as well.
Farina Pizzeria is European-style, very thin crust, baked at a very high temperature, with Italian toppings. My favorite is the pizza funghi with mushrooms, fontina, tallegio, mozzarella, thyme and shallot. Pair that pizza with a lovely salad and maybe even an appetizer of fabulous roasted olives, and you're all set!
Pizza for everyone!
I'm having fun--come on along!
