South Pas Pizza Battle Royale: Mamma vs. Nonna

southpasgourmand | Oct 6, 2007 10:09 PM

2 couples. 2 pizzas. 2 orders of garlic knots. 4 South Pasadena residents decided to settle the score once and for all. Where can you find the best local pizza? First taste test: the knots. Mamma's: crispy exterior, great garlic flavor, excellent chunky sauce. Nonna's: larger knots, doughy, strong garlic taste yet overwhelmingly greasy, watery sauce (Ragu?). The ultimate taste test: the pepperoni pizza from each. Nonna's: First bite doughy and chewy, good flavor, but slim ratio of ingredients to crust. Crust had slight chlorine flavor. Mamma's: More toppings, crispier, excellent flavor, high quality cheese and meat, great ratio of crust to toppings. The gourmand 4 has ordered frequently from both...and have settled the score. Mamma's is the winner!
