The pizza we ordered from Danny's was a work of art.
The aroma of fresh baked pizza lured us in; the scent wafted in through our open car windows on the sweet summer breeze. The pizza itself was a masterpiece; the sauce welled up through the cheese, as artfully arranged as a Jackson Pollock abstract. The taste was magnificent.
Danny's sauce is made fresh daily. It is rich and full bodied, thick and fragrant with Italian herbs and spices. It tastes like it cooked for hours.
The pizza dough is also made fresh daily, individually wrapped and refrigerated, and expertly hand tossed to order. The crust has just the right amount of chewiness with a wonderful fresh bread flavor.
We ordered a traditional hand tossed round pizza, with extra sauce and light cheese and the proportions were perfect for our taste. Danny's also offers a white pizza, and four specialty pizzas - Deluxe, Piasano Style (pepperoni, ham, capicolla, salami, sausage, bacon), Veggie, and Southern Steak (shredded sirloin steak, onions, mushroom's and hot peppers). Also on the menu are six varieties of oven-baked hoagies, four chicken breast hoagies, four fresh gardens salads and "old time favorites" like hamburgers, wings, Sicilian pizza bread and pizza bagels.
Calzones are new to Danny's menu and they offer four varieties - Sicilian, Garden, Italian Hot Sausage and Meatball. Calzones are available in two sizes - small for $7.99 or large for $9.99. I am also excited to see that Danny's has available "Big Super Slices" of New York Style Pizza for $1.75 per slice. Slices are available all day and are topped with their new tomato fillet pizza sauce. We'll definitely stop in soon to try a slice or two!
Danny's has a larger sister restaurant in on Route 88 in Bethel Park that has a more extensive menu than the small Whitehall shop, which includes some additional sides and a square pan pizza.
We have many pizzas to taste, but I know this - we'll go back to Danny's. Again and again.
