Noli's Pizza's pizza

CMC | Jul 14, 2003 12:48 PM

Last night I finally tried a pizza from Noli's. I also ordered a meat byrek and I can't decide which I like better, the cheese or the meat. But the pizza...

Ordered a large cheese thin crust. They advertize as NY style and they don't dissapoint in that regard. Right on the money, cheese/sauce/crust-wise. The firmness of the crust was done PERFECTLY. Not so hard that you could hold the pizza from one end and not have it bend, but not undercooked or too soft and slimey like a lot of places do (here and NY). The taste of the crust was pretty good too.

I liked the sauce but it could have been a little more vibrant and maybe a little more of it. Slightest hint of olive oil, could have used more. The sauce didn't jump out taste-wise on it's own, but it was a good compliment to the cheese and crust. The cheese was good enough.

My overall impressions of Noli's pizza is pretty good.
I admit I'm a sucker for any place that can do thin-crust crust well and they did it perfectly. At $12 it's a great deal. I would rate it just below Cafe Luigi's and Gigios, but above Renaldi's on Broadway, for NY style pizza in Chicago. I can't vouch for the slices, though. They might fall a little lower because I don't know how much walk-by traffic Noli's does and it's possible the ready-made pizzas for slices sit a long time.
