My Big Fat Greek Pizza (JP/Forest Hills)

Was very much looking forward to the opening of My Big Fat Greek Pizza, on Walk Hill Ave in JP. A long-vacant storefront turned into a slice shop? Sounded good to me.

Tried it out yesterday afternoon - bought just a slice of cheese pizza. Short answer: very disappointing. "Tastes like school cafeteria pizza" my friend commented. I thought it worse than a decent frozen pizza.

Crust: standard greek-style pizza place. In between thin and thick. Texture was fine. Flavor was nothing special. As a vehicle for good sauce and cheese, it would have been fine I suppose.

Sauce: there was hardly any. And it didn't have much flavor. Perhaps on the slightly sweet side, but really hard to evaluate.

Cheese: very bland. A little greasy. Tasted low-quality.

I'll go back to try a sandwich and a Greek salad, but I don't have high hopes.

I went from hoping this would be a good pizza/sandwich place to hoping that it will fail quickly, so that someone else can take advantage of the pretty nice renovation that has happened on the space. Keeping my fingers crossed for a Thai or Vietnamese neighborhood place down there...
