I know, I know...it can't be. Driving down Fullerton yesterday I noticed a new restuarant in the corner strip mall on Fullerton & Cicero (same strip mall as Subway). $.99 Pizza slice advertised in the window. Why not? Even at $.99 I retained my veto power if I saw the pizza and it looked like it should cost $.99.
But it tasted pretty good. A little on the small size--at least as far as by-the-slice goes. But not tiny. Great value. The pizza had a little better than average sauce, pretty darn good tasting cheese and a good, firm while not crisp (like I like) and good tasting crust. A tad bit greasy (and not oily in a good olive oil kind of way) but not TOO bad. I had no problems driving my stick shift and eating the pizza as I drove. I just got the cheese but there were a lot of other options. Anyway, it's not something to go out of your way for (although it's better than a lot of slices I've had that cost a lot more) but if you happen to drive by don't be scared off by look of the place or the fact that it's only $.99.
Also, I was on Harlem around Belmont and went into a Bakery on the east side of the street. Palermo's? Can't remember. Anyway, they had an amazing amount of stuff in there, including sheet pizza, gelato and huge amount of cookies and other baked goods. Everything looked so good. Waited awhile, but nobody ever came out from the back and I wasn't THAT hungry (just curious) so I left. I wasn't too hungry because I'd just eaten a sandwich expertly prepared at Riviera across the street. WOW. Thank you to whoever mentioned this place.
