Before there ever was an Anthony's I would always order my pizza from La Villa. Since I moved to the South Slope I've been a loyal Anthony's fan. Their margherita pizza is divine: crunchy, blackened crust, great fresh mozzarella, a sweet, tangy sauce. Last night, I decided to try La Villa again and see if it was as good as I remembered. It wasn’t. The sauce was bland and the mozzarella wasn’t really cooked (it was barely melted). The dough was chewy and the crusts were left uneaten (something that never happens with Anthony’s). To be fair, I live on 18th Street and Seventh (Anthony’s is a lot closer but delivers by bike-usually in 20 minutes. La Villa is always a 45 minute wait and they deliver by car). Even if La Villa’s pizza stays in the box for a longer period that doesn’t justify the undercooked cheese and crust. Has anyone experienced the opposite of this? Bad Anthony’s and good La Villa?
