Lazaro's Pizza Review [3]

Lazaro's is one of our favorite places to order takeout pizza. Only downside? They only take cash. Regardless, the slices are fresh and the dough is buttery and well-seasoned. So here's a hodgepodge of some recent takeout from South Street.

Medium White Spinach Pie ($12.75)
16'' pizza, ricotta, mozzarella, garlic, EVOO, spinach

What I love about Lazaro's is their gorgeously thin crust. Despite this, their dough stays buttery. The medium is a large 16 inches and the white spinach pie was on point - garlic notes, with well-seasoned spinach and creamy ricotta spooned throughout. Fresh and definitely gets the job done. Keep in mind, the more toppings you add, the floppier you should expect the pizza considering the relative thickness of the crust.

Large Combination Gourmet Pie ($17)
18'' pizza, pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green pepper 

Case in point - the large gourmet pie. This is a cornucopia of "the works," including a melange of meats, mushrooms, onions, and peppers. Despite the glut of toppings, the dough did a reasonable job of maintaining its crispness despite delivery. And at a standout 18 inches, this was one huge slice.

Chicken Cutlet Sub ($7.50)
Foot long, provolone, lettuce, tomato, mayo

The GF typically eschews pizza (likely because I eat so much of it). So she often goes with the sandwiches. The chicken cutlet sub was delicious - crisp, moist chicken cutlets surrounded by sharp provolone and a slab of mayo. The bread was fresh and crusty. 

Mega Fries ($5.50)
Fries, whiz, mozzarella, bacon

I can't not order the Mega Fries right? In addition to mozzarella melted on top, along with almost-too-crisp bacon, there was whiz provided on the side. Talk about overload. Unfortunately, the main component of the dish - the fries - were not crisp at all. More a starchy mush.

Onion Rings ($3.75)

Now I don't believe the onion rings are homemade, but they sure are crunchy and delicious. Nothing wrong here!

Overall, if you're looking for simple standard takeout, Lazaro's is a great bet if you're craving pizza. Just be sure to have cash on hand!
