Petrillo's Pizza off menu --- Thin Crust

Like-Go-Eat? | May 23, 200601:11 PM

Last Night I went to Petrillo's on Valley Blvd. in San Gabriel. After 40 years of going there and being very happy with the crust, sauce, cheese, peperoni and sausage (IMO the best I have had in L.A. if not the U.S.A.) I thought I would make a special request for something not on the menu -- "Thin Crust." My server said, "Ya. Sure." I asked could it be maybe 1/4" thick like I recently had in Boston? Again, "Sure. I will tell the cook."

This was the best pizza I have ever had. The crust had more of the crispy edge and yet still had that taste and chew that I have always craved from Petrillo's. A thin crust does not leave you with a feeling of being -- overfull? I took home the leftover pizza and ate some for breakfast as I always do with Petrillo's and the thin crust is even better cold than their regular crust. It still has a crispy edge.

Finally, I had had so many thin crust pizzas recently while looking to replace that great one I had in Boston that I forgot what a good pizza looks like. Petrillo's filled the top with peperoni and sausage. After eating 1/3 of it there we walked out the door with a box of pizza that weighed more than two of some of the other places I have been to in L.A.
