The chefs at the locally owned and operated All American Pizza bake up classic and specialty pies adorned with toppings to please many tastes. Meaty morsels include pepperoni, sausage, bacon, and beef, and pieces of colorful produce include green peppers, black olives, tomatoes, and pineapple. The alfredo-chicken specialty pizza transports sliceholders to Italy, and the hawaiian pizza ferries the salty-tangy combo of canadian bacon and pineapple to taste buds. Calzones keep their cheesy fillings and love of rom-coms hidden inside a golden-brown crust, which dunks gracefully into a side of marinara sauce.
Cooks at Italia Express bake specialty pizzas, calzones, and stromboli in their ovens, filling the kitchen with aromas of prosciutto, melting mozzarella cheese, and roasted garlic. The menu of Italian fare features 40 dishes including fresh pastas, the signature Express chicken with artichokes, garlic, and white-wine sauce, and New York–style cheesecake as rich and creamy as a bank vault filled with sticks of butter, colloquially known as butter bullion. The eatery has been preparing this roster of Italian delicacies since 1982.
Deli-meat missionary Danny Falcone emigrated from New York's Little Italy to bring Falcone-family favorites to Oklahoma City. A hot sandwich, such as the meatball parmigiana, makes an Italian classic accessible in the forkless wasteland that is lunchtime eating ($7.95). A slice of spinach pizza satisfies triangular cravings ($3), and an entire square Sicilian pie corners growling stomachs ($14.99). Try a Manhattan Special soda, which washes down deli delights in a sugary sarsaparilla bath, or tickles sugar tusks with vanilla bean-y bubbles ($2.50). For those who prefer to eat at home, where there’s a comfortable armchair and no unfamiliar ghosts, there are by-the-pound deli items, such as olives stuffed with prosciutto, garlic, jalapeño, and cheese ($9.50 per pound) and imported Italian artichokes ($12.99 per pound).
