The dough is hand spun, the sauce house made and biting into a piece hot from the oven the yeasty crust crackled with a pleasantly crisp bottom. The crust is not too thin, not too thick, but just right.
There is a nice balance of crust, sauce, cheese and toppings. The mushrooms and Italian sausage topping is generous. Mini sizes were available. The mini size was enough for two and at $6.50 for two toppings, a deal.
It is generic old style pizza at its best. I was only going to have ONE slice, but that crust was addictive. The crust loses its crispiness in the fridge, but is still tasty.
They also bake their own bread, the huge loaves sitting on the counter. If you want to order a loaf, you have to call the day before.
I think Ive stumbled across a way to get free samples. I kept going on and on about how great the bread looked, and finally the owner cut me a slice to eat while I was waiting for the pie. It is unique and a nice Italian style bread.
Standard Italian food is also available like lasagna, chicken, veal, mostaccioli and spaghetti and meatballs (including a parmesan/ butter based white spaghetti).
The business has been in Crockett for 25 years. When the original owner died a few years ago, the two cooks who worked for her almost that long, bought the place and continued running it as usual. Not fancy, but a pleasant restaurant that has sunny windows overlooking 2nd Avenue.
Its not NY, Chicago, California or New Haven style Pizza. It is just pizza and it is good.
