Tale of the Pie: Paradise Pizza

Full disclosure: Before it became this blog, The Pizza Project was just an Excel spreadsheet printed out and stashed away in one of our kitchen drawers. In all honesty, we ate this Paradise pie a few weeks ago, so the experience isn't super-fresh in my mind, but I remember it was tasty and have a few spreadsheet notes to share.

We had tried Paradise Pizza a few times when we first moved into our house - most memorably when we invited my dad, sister and two very good friends over to help us paint half the house ... in one day. Yes, clearly we were homeowner virgins and this was our first time planning a painting project of this magnitude. After 12 continuous hours of painting, we figured we should feed them something and ordered from Paradise, as it was the closest spot to our new house.

I remember it being good, very good in fact. But we didn't continue to order their pizzas because they don't deliver. Yes, this may sound extremely lazy, given that it is only a five-minute drive from our house. But the truth is, when you're already sitting on the couch in your PJs or velour sweatsuit watching TV with a total winetooth, the last thing you want to do is bundle up and head outside to pick up your food.

But I digress. On to our recent experience with Paradise. We ordered a large pie with extra sauce, pepperoni and half green peppers. It was, once again, very good. Not knock-your-socks-off-this-is-the-only-pie-for-me good, but very good and we will definitely get it again. The crust was just right - thin and not too doughy. The sauce was both flavorful and ample, so much so that we wouldn't need to order extra next time. Toppings were fresh and the side of mozz sticks was decent.

But another drawback to the lack of delivery service: we do not own a pizza-warmer bag. So by the time we get the pie home, set the table and get the nibble into his highchair with a piece sufficiently cut up for him, my first bite is not as warm as I would prefer.

All-in-all, I give Paradise four slices for overall tastiness and look forward to trying it again.

Pros: Nice thin crust and ample, flavorful sauce
Cons: No delivery service
