Paddock in Somerville -- good pizza, but Armando's it ain't

finlero | Oct 6, 2006 01:22 AM

Finally got to try a pizza from the Paddock in Somerville tonight. Whenever I try someplace new, I make it a point to give a nod to the scientific method and start with a plain cheese.

The pie was definitely quite good, but as far as this thin crust style is concerned, I felt like it was a poor cousin to Cambridge's superb Armando's in every way.

Cheese: good, but not quite salty enough.
Sauce: good, not quite as fresh-tasting or spicy.
Crust: good, but slightly too dry.

HOWEVER-- as mentioned earlier today on this board, they do deliver! Armando's will remain my reigning champion of thin crust in the area, but I'm very pleased to pop Paddock into my speed dial.
