Each of Milano's Pizza's thin-crust pies start with fresh dough and house-made sauce, but from there the rest is up to you. To build-your-own pizza, you'll need to somehow choose from a list of nearly 30 toppings, including unusual items such as steak, fontinella cheese, artichoke hearts, and even crabmeat. Of course, if that's too overwhelming, you can always opt for one of the eatery's 18 tried-and-true specialty pizzas, including a pierogi pizza topped with mashed potatoes, onions, bacon, and cheddar. And although pizza is the specialty at Milano's, there are plenty of non-pizza items on the menu, too, such as pasta, calzones, and hoagies. Whatever the main course, you'll want to save room for dessert, where you can go the traditional route and order a chocolate-dipped cannoli or go the untraditional route and order another pizza.
Hearth-baked pizzas earned Pizza Supreme the love, and votes, of Tribune-Review readers in the 2010 and 2011 Trib Readers' Choice awards, according to the staff. In addition to award-winning pizzas, Pizza Supreme—also known as Café Supreme—serves fresh salads, signature burgers, and italian specialty pastas.
You can top off Pizza Parma's pies with any of more than 30 uncommon gourmet toppings. That includes cheeses such as gouda and greek mountain cheese, meats such as crabmeat, gyros, and steak, and veggies such as artichoke hearts, eggplant, and broccoli. The pizzeria’s chefs can put the same rich ingredients in a steaming calzone or string them on a necklace for a loved one. Alternatively, there’s a wide selection of wraps and hoagies, which, depending on what part of the country you're in, are also known as "grinders", "heroes", or "denver omelets".
The cooks at Nobby's Pizzeria sprinkle hand-tossed crusts with tangy, homemade sauce and aromatic cheese made from a smoked provolone blend. In addition to classics such as pepperoni and sausage, they adorn seven signature pizzas with creative toppings ranging from ranch and buffalo sauce to capicola and olives. Their menu also includes other Italian-American staples, including meaty hoagies and ricotta-covered calzones.
The chefs at Pizzutti's Restaurant roll and slice delicate ribbons of spaghetti, and other pastas in the bustling kitchen. The housemade pastas, alongside other noodles imported from Italy, act as anchor for dishes that also feature housemade pesto. Classically prepared Prince Edward mussels with tomatoes and chives join the seasonally rotating menu, served indoors, on the patio, or next to a Leaning Tower of Pisa hologram.
Choices abound at Captain's Pizza & Subs, where customers build their own pies, pulling from ingredient options that include 5 different cheeses, 13 meats, 11 veggies, and a generous slathering of homemade tomato or garlic sauce. Creative types can start by sprinkling a disc of the shop's fresh, daily made dough with ricotta or sharp cheddar, adding on pepperoni, capicola, and gyro meat or lending a pop of color in the form of fresh chopped broccoli, artichoke hearts, and roasted red peppers. Those with indecisive appetites can let the cooks do their picking for them by opting for one of 17 gourmet pies that pile on pre-vetted flavor combinations such as steak, mushrooms, and ranch sauce or barbecue sauce, grilled chicken, and red onions. To round out the menu, the restaurant also offers a smattering of specialty pasta dishes, salads, and 8- or 16-inch hoagies, along with their famous Captain's Wings, which arrive tossed in one of four sauces that vary in both spiciness and drinkability.
