OK, I’ll admit it. When it comes to what I like in pizza, I’m a caveman.
I don’t want goat’s cheese and morrocan lamb. I don’t want a papadam. I don’t even want BBQ sauce. I do not want a bunch of dried up ingredients balanced on top of a dry crust.
I want a thinnish base, still slightly slick on the top, with a thick tomato paste, a crispy layer of cheese, and a small number of toppings.
I can eat your new age pizzas no problem, enjoy them even. But when I want pizza I yearn for the simpler days of my childhood.
Which is pretty much what “That Pizza Place” on London Circuit is offering.
At $4.50 a slice I went for two pieces of the “Times Square” which is basically an old school pepperoni.
Really I’d have been fine with a sub $5 lunch review. One slice was plenty.
On walking into the store one is confronted by a row of very large pizzas already made. Decide which one you want and a slice gets put onto a toaster oven conveyer belt, when it comes out the other end it goes on a paper plate and into a paper bag.
It’s quick, hot, tasty, old school pizza.
