Sam's Pizza is close to my house (the one on Charles Street near East High School). To continue our testing of the various locally owned pizza places in Rockford, a call was placed and 30 minutes later piping hot pizza was delivered.
The sauce was good, the sausage large and full of Italian fennel flavor. I always eat one piece with the crust, than I denude three additional pieces to eat the toppings and save the carbs. This is one pizza where the crust was not worth the extra calories.
I am starting to suspect that pizzas are like boyfriends. You find one that you really, REALLY like - A LOT! But you keep looking around and going on pizza dates. Trying to see if there is something better out there. Usually, this is a futile search. When you have found the ONE stick with them.
Deli Italia downtown holds the #1 pizza spot in my heart. If I were not writing about various pizza's in Rockford, I would not be cheating on you - I swear. I will be back - you are my pizza soul mate.
