Growing up in Brooklyn, I remember great pizza. Even when we moved to Westchester in 1985, there were some class spots. Sal's in Mamaroneck, S&J in Scarsdale and the place up by WCC in Valhalla were all great, but even the average places were good. Then it all went downhill.
I tried a slice from Villa Maria in Larchmont today. One caramelized onion slice and Snapple. It looked good and I was told it also had gorgonzola in it. I was psyched. I go to pay and it was $6.20 for a slice that took about eight bites to finish. There was no gorgonzola and aside from the sweetness of the onions, it was absolutely flavorless. I don't eat pizza out often, because it is so bad across the board, but any thoughts? And don't tell me Pepe's. I'm saddened that frozen supermarket pizza usually exceeds in flavor and is generally a lot cheaper.
