Post Pizza Fairfield

bagelman01 | Oct 1, 2013 05:28 PM

This evening I took my youngest to her sign language class in Bridgeport and had to kill 90 minutes and eat supper.

I was in the mood for pizza. As most on this board know I am a New Haven native, love my Apizza, thin and charred, a Sally's fan and begrudgingly eat Pepe's. and of course mozzarella is an extra.

I cut across Villa Ave towards Fairfield supper and at the corner of Tunxis Hill Cutoff spotted Post Pizza (in the strip in front of Kohl's).

I said to myself, it looks Italian, not Greek or Mexican, how bad can it be.

I went it and sat down and peruised the menu. Open about 20 years and run by a family from Naples.

I ordered a small Margherita pie and a beer. I prayed that it wouldn't be thick dough.

The pie arrived, dinner plate sized (6 slices), a thin crisp, slightly charred crust with a flavorful sauce, just enough cheese and fresh basil.

It was perfect!!! I would almost call this Apizza except that it was made in a modern Baker's Pride or Blodgett oven.

I ate every morsel and was sorry it was over. I look forward to more visits on Tuesday nights-daughter has 8 more weeks of class. Great food in the middle of a dining wasteland.
