Eat: Big House Pizza

Not Neapolitan pizza by any means, but Big House Pizza is about 10 notches up from the pizza chains that offer cardboard pizza (you know what I mean).

I came here on Wednesday night for dinner with a group of friends (one very important factor in getting over a breakup is to surround yourself people who care about YOU, and willing to eat junky food with you). Big House Pizza goes beyond the traditional pepperoni, deluxe, vegetarian, etc. by offering unique toppings and witty names, like Rob ‘The Jerk’ Ford (our infamous former mayor), Ain’t No Mis-Take Dinner and Hot Potato… Pass It On. I’m the type to look at the ingredients first as oppose to picking something based on puns, even if they are good.

I didn’t try the Shrimp’n Ain’t EZ, but the chicken pizza was really delicious and the toppings were mostly well distributed. However, I wished there were more bacon as there was not very much.
