Went to Pizza-A-Go-Go last night. On Scanlon and Ivanhoe. From 44 east get off at Jaimison and go straight thru the intersection one block to Ivanhoe. Go left about a block to Scanlon.
A good pizza. Made by some old guy with a Sicilian? accent. He said he had a place on Grand where he made pizza for 35 years. He throws them in the air. They only have pizza and soda. No salad or wines or beer. I have a friend who goes there who brings her own salad and wine. It’s a pretty inexpensive meal. Pizza is good too. Not too much sauce or cheese. They have thick and thin. The thin is still fairly thick
Which is ok too. Not a cracker crust. Nothing too fancy. Usual list of ingredients. We had bacon and sausage. Bacon was very thinly cut and perfectly crispy. Not greasy at all. Worth trying. Definitely not Imo’s. Not too big a place. About 10 tables. A large pizza is $13-. No tipping. Order at the counter. They bring it to the table. Pay at the counter when you’re done.
Another thing worth noting is the girl working in the open kitchen. Probably early 20s. Very attractive. Beautiful eyes. Tight t-shirts and jeans with a body that is about 9 on a 10 scale. Maybe the owners granddaughter?

Another place worth mentioning is Uptown Pizza in Clayton on Meremac at Carondolet. They have a special for $8.99. A pizza and salad. You get a gormet or regular pizza and a great salad. I always get the Caesar. Very good, nice crispy lettuce. I usually get the Bianca pizza. Gorgonzola, roasted garlic, walnuts and spinach. The pizza is big enough for my wife and I to split. She gets a side caesar. They have a house salad that’s excellent too. Our whole meal with a tip is under $20-. It’s a small place. Only about 10 tables. I don’t think too many people know about it because it’s never crowded at night. Usually only one or two tables are taken. I think they do a big lunch business. At night parking is never a problem. Anyone I’ve ever taken here goes back on a regular basis.
