We have some great gourmet pizza shops in this area with gourmet toppings, flatbreads, and the like. But sometimes we just need good old-fashioned traditional take-out pizza. We’d tried a few spots – one was too greasy, one just kind of bland.
Then we tried Angelina’s, with several locations in MA (we tried the Salisbury location for take-out). Intrigued by something called the double-decker, I went ahead and ordered it without a question. I was impressed when my husband brought it home and I discovered it was essentially a pizza within a pizza! The lower crust is wrapped around the upper crust at the edges so that it all holds together beautifully. You may think it’s just two pieces of pizza on top of one another, but there’s something about the layers of flavor and the thickness of it, all baked together – it’s like pizza lasagne – repeated layers of tasty ingredients. Of course, eating one piece of a double-decker is like eating two standard pieces, so I filled up more quickly, but I think that at about $16 for a one-topping double-decker this also makes it a great value since it’s the equivalent of two large pizzas in one.
The traditional one-layer pizza at Angelina’s is also great. We went with eggplant and feta. The eggplant is lightly breaded for a bit of crunch. Their sauce is tasty, the cheese is good…it’s comfort food at its best. We’ll be trying the Angelina’s subs and other offerings soon, so stay tuned!
