E. M. Pizzeria - Brentwood
This review is a testament to the fact that advertising does work! We must have driven by the E. M. Pizzeria thousands of times but never really noticed it. This past week, we found a menu tucked into our copy of the either the South Hills Record or the Pennysaver ... and it looked pretty good! We tried it last night and are glad we did.
The pizza had a very tasty thick and chewy hand tossed crust. The fresh sauce was thick and flecked with herbs, and the pizza was just the way we like it - extra sauce and light cheese. (We asked for light cheese on our pizza which is why it looks thin in the photo.) I read another review that said the sauce is bland - that is not at all how we feel! We liked the sauce very much, and although it is mild, it is also very flavorful.
E.M. Pizzeria has a very extensive menu with many varieties and combinations of pizza, salads, calzones, wedgies, pasta, specialty pasta, oven-baked hoagies, gourmet hoagies, gyros, wings, appretizers and desserts! We love the sound of the Chicken Spinach Gourmet Hoagie, the Gyro Hoagie and the Chicken Ranchero sounds awesome - chicken breast, ranch sauce, french fries and provolone. I can imagine myself stopping back very soon for a yummy Chicken Gyro Platter, Greek Pizza or a Tuscan Chicken Pizza (grilled chicken, tomato sauce, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers and mozzarella).
We'll be back!
