|Jason considers a Cheese Slice|
We pulled up stools and waited--the kids' slice was done in about 10-12 minutes, my Supremo in about 17 minutes. Served with a smile both times. The single slice was huge and foldable--the way most folks rave about New York Style pizza. The cheese was a little greasy, very gooey and quite tasty. The tomato sauce is like sweet pureed tomatoes. I should thank the kids for letting me have one bite while they devoured the rest.

Pink's Supremo Pizza Blueprint:
pepperoni, Italian sausage,
Canadian bacon, onions,
black olives, bell peppers
& fresh mushrooms
This pizza had the same kind of thin crust I experienced at Pizaro's on Memorial--crunchy outside edge, chewy inside and in the center. However, their pizza is baked in a natural gas conveyor oven, not a wood-fired brick oven, so it takes longer than at Pizaro's. (Don't want to set unreasonable expectations, y'all!) The tomato sauce was also like sweet tomato puree. The sausage and pepperoni had a savoury, fennel and spicy pepper taste combined with sweet pork. The Canadian bacon was nice and chewy. The vegetable toppings were all fresh--slightly crunchy onions and peppers, mushy mushrooms. This is a fairly standard supreme pizza, and it works quite well as a whole pie. A real winner in my book.
Also so you know, you can pay $0.50 for pizza insurance with your order, which is invested in a number of charities. They donated some for Tsunami aid in Japan a while back. Right now they're collecting for planting trees in Memorial park after last year's drought disaster. Worthy causes and I sprung for it.
