I will be comparing apples to apples; all the pizza challenge pies will be sausage and pepperoni. (Though when eating alone I adore an all vegetable pizza!!)
I like the mild fennel flavor of the sausage in a Deli pizza, plus the smaller crumble which makes for an easier bite.
The cheese tastes like a marriage of mozzarella and Parmesan- maybe some Romano.
The entire combination is just, for me, a perfect combination of savory, spicy, crispy pizza.
Bonus!? The wonderful family that operates Deli Italia. They don't know my name, nor I theirs. But every time we go there we are greeted with the familiarity of known faces sharing great Italian food.
Would you like to recommend a local pizza place for the Friday challenge? Make your suggestion in the comments!
