LOCATION: Angeloni's (6 Brookside Ave, Caldwell, NJ 07006)
GUEST(S): Robin Rothman, Terry Jinn, Alexis Saarela, Bea, Emi
ORDER: 1.5 slices of a large "Thinny-thin" cheese, 1.5 slices of "Thinny-thin" Grandma Irm's Sicilian (mozzarella, cooked sauce, parmigiana), 1 slice of small Michael's Specialty pie (Broccoli rabe, sausage, parmigiana and homemade mozzarella), 1/2 slice of small "Thinny-thin" cheese with pepperoni and sausage
Family pizza parlor. The family-friendly Angeloni's Restaurant and Pizzeria in Caldwell, New Jersey is proof that a pizzeria doesn’t need a bar to sell a bar pie. According to Slice Life, the crisp-yet-chewy thin "bar pie" crust style was created on the premise that less dough means more room for beer. At Angelino’s, use that extra room for extra pizza! Then menu refers to their signature ultra-thin crust as the “thinny-thin” and you should definitely order it. While the menu is loaded with specialty pies, I recommend sticking with the basic original “thinny-thin” cheese pie. Additional toppings threaten to challenge the architectural integrity of the ultra thin crust which itself is partially composed of excess caramelized fried cheese. Yes, a built-in treat at the end of each slice! If you live nearby, you can dine-in, carryout or even order it by the slice. Angeloni’s unique cheese blend and tangy tomato sauce combo will keep you coming back.

1. Emi loves pink and purple and seals.
2. Bea plays soccer, ice skates and loves playing 20 Questions: Animal edition.
3. I met Terry Jinn and Alexis Saarela in and around the improv comedy community and am thrilled they are both keeping up their performing pursuits. Alexis acts in several community theater productions and Terry plays guitar as part of School of Rock Montclair.
Sean Taylor4. Today was a "NEW JERSEY' day in more ways than one. Not only did we eat pizza in New Jersey but my softball team got new jersies for our fall league. We are the Crystal Lake GOATs.
5. After we got home, Robin Rothman cut my hair! It was something she started doing during lockdown and I think she's pretty good at it.
