Q:You review pizza in the central PA area? This blog is extremely informative for me.
I haven’t for over a year now, unfortunately!
This is the “Hot Hot Hot” pizza from a place called Roberto’s in Middletown, PA. It is described as “hot peppers, jalapeños, green peppers, cheddar, and mozzarella cheese with hot sauce.” When I ordered it by phone I had to say it three times because they had no idea what I was talking about. This was very embarrassing because it is called “hot hot hot pizza.”
It was pretty good. It wasn’t as spicy as advertised, which is both a disappointment and probably a blessing. I wasn’t really in the mood for pizza (shocking) but my spouse wanted to order from here, so I picked this up.
I have not been neglecting this blog - I have been making a conscious effort not to eat too much crappy food, because I was finding myself kind of sluggish even when falling within my calories - a surefire sign that cheese has found its way into my bloodstream (see: medical literature). So chicken and broccoli for most meals it is!
We somehow never have been to this place even though it’s in our town - it’s the furthest of the three places from us - Roberto’s in Middletown, PA. One good thing about this place is how cheap it is. We really had salads for dinner this night, but we also picked up a couple slices and a “French bread pizza” appetizer to try. The pizza was passable - probably equivalent in quality to our other places. The French bread pizza was bready - I think it was actually half a sub roll? - and because I prefer my pizza somewhat crispy it was not for me.
Don’t be afraid to try something new. Reach for your dreams, etc, etc.
This is the grilled vegetable pizza from Cafe Fresco, which is one of our usual lunch haunts. It’s a brand new menu item AND a pizza, which is a pretty solid endorsement. I took a picture of the board so I could remember the description, but all I can make out is “NEW” and “$8.00.” So here it is - the new $8.00 pizza with a bunch of veggies on it! I don’t think it’ll replace any other go-tos but it seems like an ok thing if you’re in the mood for a bunch of veggies on your pizza?
This is a large hamburger and green peppers pizza from Tony’s in Highspire, PA. Hamburger and peppers sounded really good to my brain when I ordered this and obviously my brain was so wrong. Hamburger is not a very good pizza topping you guys. Still, it was good enough and I ate it all over three days.
This is the Italian Turkey Sausage pizza from The Pizza Grille in Camp Hill, PA. I went there to catch up with a friend, and after we caught up we talked about The Hobbit, Skyfall, and New Star Wars. Pizza!
The pizza is, per the menu, spicy Italian turkey sausage, roasted red peppers, tomato sauce, and mozzarella cheese. The sausage was all right. If the peppers hadn’t been on there the whole thing would be fairly insubstantial flavor-wise.
The pizza itself, the basic pizza, was good. I’d go back and get something different.
Pizza from Infinito’s Pizza Buffet. Top: “rosè” which tasted like cheese pizza despite there also being a cheese pizza? The bottom is chicken barbecue which has BBQ sauce and is as big a turd as it sounds. I’ve written about Infinito’s three times before (all from the same trip).
