Nola's Pizza

 There are a few food items that I have a hard time matching here in FL to that of the same items in NY. Chinese food (or any Asian foods), pizza, bagels, etc. don't taste the same...and FYI, putting 'NY style' on your sign doesn't help the quality of the food. But I continue to try and make little mental notes about particular places and what I ordered there, and sometimes try to give a place the benefit of the doubt and order different items.

Awhile back I went to this pizza place called Nola's Pizza, they let you order by the slice or the whole pie (or pizza if you aren't from NY). It's not the cheapest option and if you really don't care about it being NY style, just go somewhere else like a Pizza Hut where it's probably almost half the price. But as they say, curiosity killed the cat, and I placed an order for an X-Large pepperoni, cheese, and fresh garlic pizza. An X-Large comes with 12 slices and normally you wouldn't think this was a problem, but when the pizza came the slices were very uneven in terms of how they were sliced, some were large (normal size) and some were 1/3 of a normal slice. The garlic was okay but honestly you would probably (actually I know) be more satisfied making the drive to a local Grimaldi's and ordering there, their fresh garlic and fresh cheese is FRESH and they don't skimp on the garlic.

But taking into consideration my laziness that day I went with the easier option. On a scale of 1-10, I would probably give it a 6.7-7 which isn't too bad. I could fold the slices, at least some of them, and there was a little grease to it, and the sauce had decent flavor. Once the price came into it and if you are a real pizza snob, you may want to order elsewhere. But give it a try, I can't say I was disappointed, just not super happy.


  1. I see the search continues to find the perfect NY pizza in South FL....will you ever find a decent slice!

    1. We shall see. It wasn't that bad but still not entirely happy. Have to try to keep the faith. :-)
