Day 30, 2018: Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza (Orlando, FL)



DAY 30: OCTOBER 30th, 2018

LOCATION: Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza (8031 Turkey Lake Rd, Sand Lake, FL 32819)

GUEST(S): Robin Rothman

ORDER: 2 slices of 8" Margherita, 2 slices of white pie with pepperoni

NYC comes to suburbia. Thanks to Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza, you don't have to book a trip to the Big Apple to get a good taste of New York. As soon as you walk into the dining area, expect to be surrounded by photos of Yankee greats, the rat pack and a myriad of other New York City icons. Don't be surprised to hear the likes of Frank Sinatra or Billy Joel singing in the background. If you weren't already in a New York state of mind, close your eyes and take a whiff. That's coal-fired pizza baking in the oven. Cooking at over 800 degrees, it won't be long before the high quality ingredients like fresh mozzarella cheese and imported Pecorino Romano are melting in your mouth. Owner Anthony Bruno and partner Dan Marino (of the Miami Dolphins) appeal to all the senses in an effort to teleport patrons to a classic early 20th century pizzeria. There are only a handful of originals like Lombardi's, Patsy's, Totonno's and John's but with over 70 locations, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza homage has clearly struck a chord, a few taste buds and a whole lot of nostalgia. If you love the characteristic charring of the crust and understand that great pizza should not require loads of toppings, you're ready for Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza. But, I warn you, after eating pizza from a chain that tastes this good, you might never be able to go back to the likes of Pizza Hut or Domino's ever again.

1. Robin Rothman and I closed out our Florida pizza adventure today. The weather in Florida is beautiful at the end of October. Now we're back in New York City already missing the palm trees and the beach.
