The basic pizza needs no introduction, but Pompeii's menu discloses the secrets of even the most elusive species of pie. Order a large E's Special with barbecue sauce, chicken, pineapple, bacon, jalapeños, and extra cheese (16", $17.95), or go for the large Big Round (chicken, bacon, pepperoni, and extra cheese with a side of ranch, $17.95). Pizza heretics can rejoice with a stromboli (pepperoni, ham, Genoa salami, and cheese inside a doughy cocoon, $7.95), Philly cheesesteak ($7.95), or a huge order of 20 Buffalo wings ($16.95, also available in barbecue flavor). You can also order small, not exactly small, and bigger-than-your-head pies with any of 19 toppings, including black or green olives, anchovies, and shrimp (one-topping 8", $4.50; 12", $9.95; and 16", $13.45; additional charge for premium-topping chicken or shrimp). Wash any solid foods down with a half-liter bottle of Coca-Cola or Dr. Pepper soft drinks ($1.25).
