Crush of the Month: We're Going Zany for 'Za!

Yum


While Lisa and I never met a pizza we didn’t like, and while we like artisanal pizza (thin-crust, eclectic toppings and fired in 60 seconds), there’s nothing we love more than old school pizza. Yeah, you heard us right. We’re talking flavorful crust that hovers between medium-thick and is dotted with pillowy air pockets, a layer of sweet ‘n savory tomato sauce, topped with loads of melted mozzarella and finished with classic toppings such as mushrooms, pepperoni and peppers.
