Fortune Favors The Cold

The temperature dropped to the low 20’s and snow was falling heavily but that did little to deter my sudden craving for pizza. A quick search revealed a place not too far from me called The Famous House of Pizza & Calzones so I bundled up and headed out. The walk there was less than fun but once I arrived I knew it hadn’t been in vain.

I tried two slices, their Margherita (which included prosciutto) and their deep dish. Both absolute beautiful examples of classic New York City style pizza.

But before we get any further can we just talk about the crust? Let’s talk about the crust. PERFECTION. I live for a perfectly charred, crunchy crust and they had it in spades.

But the crust was just the beginning. The Margherita was wonderful but the Deep Dish slice is what really stood out for me.

The sauce was perfectly sweetened and I’m not ashamed to say that more than once I took a few licks of just that. I should’ve have asked but if I had to guess I’d say they used basil in it. Anyways, when that sauce mixed with the crunchy, pocket filled crust and the mozzarella, my friend, you have yourself a little slice of pizza nirvana.

10/10 Would walk through a mini blizzard again for a slice.
