The eggplant parmigiana hero at Loretta’s Pizza is simple and satisfying, just the way Cheese Boy likes it. Peeled, sliced eggplant, coated with house-made breadcrumbs, is fried and layered in a hero roll. On top is a ladleful of garlicky, fresh-tasting tomato sauce and a generous covering of Parmesan. When you order, ask them to toast the bread. “It tastes so much better that way,” Cheese Boy observes.
