Bakery-style pizza in the south suburbs

Mugs | Jul 21, 200303:33 PM

Imagine the novelty of finding bakery a/k/a sheet pizza about 160 blocks south of Taylor St. Imagine the delight of finding it tastes good. Scumaci's is on the southwestern end of Orland Park, the rural part, not the traffic-congested mall part, in a three- or four-store strip mall yards west of the intersection of Wolf Rd. and US Rt. 6 / Southwest Highway. Scumaci's offers thin-crust pizza, strudels, and bakery-style pizza. (No stuffed/deep dish/pan! Allright!) The bakery-style comes as a half tray or full tray. I carried out a half tray; it must've numbered 20 square pieces. The rolled crust had a slightly sweet, wholesome taste. The sauce was good, and the Italian sausage was plentiful and had flavor. The chopped garlic we'd requested was real and fresh and put the pizza into another dimension.

Scumaci's menu also lists subs, sandwiches, salads, pasta, Italian ice, and gelato.

Scumaci's is near Mokena, Frankfort, and New Lenox. I live 17 miles away in Joliet, but I'm going to find reasons to get back to Scumaci's.
