Does anyone besides me remember those Little Caesar's commercials? "Pizza pizza!"
Anyway, cincymoms.com has a highly readable thread on best non-chain, non-LaRosa's pizzas. Cassano's (Daly and Galbraith), AA Pizza (NKy), Dewey's and Italianette show up a lot. That thought process of great pizza spots inspired me to swing by Trotta's last night and give it a try. I grew up eating Trotta's on the West Side - we're talking pigging out at pizza parties in grade school (some things never change) - then all the chains closed, and only one location remains - Trotta's Drive Thru, 3501 Werk Road in Bridgetown. It's the only DRIVE-THRU pizza place I have ever heard of! But they do it up right. I'm a fan of the thick crust, Sicilian pizza. There's some spice on the crust - garlic, and maybe a bit of pepper, that makes you want to eat the crust first. It's just GOOD, and it tastes homemade. (And the picture shows what was left after I ate most of it on the drive home.)
What's more - you can get goetta pizza here. Go figure!
