Great Pizza in North Raleigh

Tom from Raleigh | Nov 8, 200907:38 AM

Ordering pizza for delivery is a pretty rare occasion for my family. I've found an exceptional place in Wakefield that I have to post about.

Pittsburgh Pizza and Wing Factory is in a strip mall off of New Falls of Neuse. There's also a Food Lion and an above average sushi place in the same complex.

I'm no expert on what makes a Pittsburgh pizza distinctive, though I have to assume it has to do with the crust. Unlike a New York style pizza the crust is to substantial to fold, but it's not nearly as thick as a Chicago style pizza. If you've ever had the "hand tossed" crust at Pizza Hut, you're on the right track. The similarities between PPW and Pizza Hut end here.

My kids wanted pepperoni and sausage on their pizza. I also added a heretofore unknown and unique topping: kielbasa (smoked Polish sausage). The kielbasa stole the show. The pizza was great! Toothsome, chewy and flavorful crust married with some olive oil (instead of tomato sauce) and then the melted cheese mixed with flavor of the toppings made for a very memorable experience. The wings were good, too, but the pizza is much better than average.
