As the North Shore is known for its roast beef, the South Shore is the land of bar pizza. This typically isn’t a style of pizza found in a standard parlor; as the name suggests, this is a specific pie often found in bars and restaurants throughout the southeastern part of the state. Thin, biscuit-like crust is baked in a well-oiled 10-inch pan, with sauce and cheese (mozzarella or cheddar) swimming up to the very edge like an infinity pool of pizza. The Lynwood Café in Randolph has been famous for their take on the style for nearly seventy years. You can get a “colloquial specialty” twofer if you indulge in their surprisingly tasty use of Boston baked beans as a topping.
