Valozzi’s- Pittsburgh

20140214-123601.jpg

So glad to have stopped into this Italian joint on the edge of market square. We sat at the fresh mozzarella & charcuterie bar area and sampled many small plates. Nothing was made in house, but our cheese expert explained that the cheese was shipped in from Italy and picked up directly from the PITT airport.

Pasquarelli’s Pizza House- Mc Kees Rocks, PA

Meat Pizza

I’ve been working in Pittsburgh, PA on an Oracle implementation and have met some fun people on the client side. Dee was excited to learn about my blog and actually compiled a list of pizza places to try while I’m in PA. This was our first adventure to check out all the best pizza near town. She brought in pizza from her local pizzeria that she’s been eating at forever. One meat pizza, one veggie pizza, one romano cheese pizza, and some awesomely spiced breadsticks.

Fat Tommy’s-Pittsburgh

I enjoyed having a few slices at the classic Fat Tommy’s in Market Square, Pittsburgh. This place has been around for a while and listening to Fat Tommy’s husky voice adds to the ambiance of this part counter-service /part carryout pizzeria. We sat at the bar for lunch. I had the pepperoni slice and the white pizza (no sauce with sliced tomatoes). I enjoyed both of the slices and this place was packed when I arrived. I also got a taste of the Fontanini sausage on a slice as well! Love Fontanini. It’s funny because I rarely go to slice shops, but both slices were cooked through with real-tasting cheese. None of that crappy stuff. The only greasy part of the ZA was because of the pepperoni, so I was alright with that. The thin crust was very NYC and I was able to fold the pizza over and chow down. Will be back here for a quick bite soon.

We had a meat & cheese platter that was decked with plenty of prosciutto, […]
