LOCATION: Pizza Town II (30th St and 7th avenue, NYC)
GUEST(S): Jarret Berenstein, John Frusciante, Kelly Buttermore, Jason Grossman, Christian Capozolli, Emmy Smith, Matt Shafeek
ORDER: 1 slice of cheese
PIZZA REPORT: Pizza Town II: not as good as the original. I don't know where the original Pizza Town is located but I can confidently say that the sequel is not as good. The crust was uneven and there was not enough sauce to overcome the mediocre cheese. The fact the dough was uneven (thicker in places in throughout the slice) is probably due to someone pushing the dough in random places to make it fit the pan better. This causes portions of the slice to not be able to fully support the toppings while other portions actually taste 'doughy'. Of course this means that it was not evenly cooked as well. I am being picky though as it was still a pretty decent slice of NY pizza. My favorite part was the convenience, speed, and portability of the slice. The lack of sauce actually keeps it neater when taking it on the go. Of course, I didn't take it 'on the go' so I was unable to enjoy that feature, but it was there. Also, the fact I wanted more sauce means I liked the taste of the sauce. Maybe the original Pizza Town spent too much on sauce and who knows? maybe Pizza Town III will be subtitled, "the return of the sauce".
