Here in the amazing U. S. of A. we are known for always wanting more. More money, more time, more options. Is it of any coincidence then that pizza is one of the most popular foods in our dear country? Pizza is quick, cheap, and there are thousands of different options of toppings and ways to eat a slice: the perfect combination for a college kid.
C-town must have caught on. Even in a little town like ours, it is still possible to find a great piece of pizza. No matter what your preference, one of these pizzerias is sure to satisfy your taste buds.
Not sure what kind of pizza you’re in the mood for tonight? Head over to Procolino’s Pizza, located on Washington Avenue in the same shopping center as Acme and Roses.’ Procolino’s has been in business for more than 30 years, and its pizza has the same great taste since the day it first opened its doors. They have the classic pizza options such as cheese, pepperoni, and mushroom, but they also offer some options that are a little more out of the ordinary. Take their baked ziti pizza, for example. This amazing piece of pizza starts with a perfect crust topped with ziti noodles, smothered in mozzarella cheese, covered in sauce and topped with Parmesan cheese. Torn between Italian and Mexican? Try out Procolino’s taco pizza; all of the taco mixings on top of crust. It’s like a fiesta in your mouth! This is the perfect place to stop for a quick piece of pizza, or to sit in the back room, which has more of a restaurant feel, with a group of friends or family!
Further up Washington Avenue, in the same shopping center as McDonald’s and Fresh & Green’s, is Luisa’s. If you sit in the restaurant part of Luisa’s, it’s fancier than your normal pizza place. The pizzas are a little more expensive, but they are so tasty. This is definitely a place to take your parents for good pizza, because they’ll pay! However, Luisa’s also offers a little area consisting of a few booths as soon as you walk in the front doors where you can order slices for cheap. If you’re not in the mood for traditional toppings, try their buffalo chicken pizza. It’s to die for! Luisa’s also has great service! They have friendly staff, and for the lazy college kids out there, you have the option of having someone wait on you instead of simply ordering your food at the counter, like at Proc’s.
If you’re looking for something a little fancier, try Red Brick Pizza. It is located next to Subway and Lewes on High Street. They are a chain, so they do not really have the traditional pizza feel, but they offer gourmet fire-roasted pizzas and personal pizzas. Their pizzas aren’t really made to order, but they are definitely fit for someone who is a little more adventurous! Try their Thai chicken pizza, or their bacon cheeseburger pizza! They are a little more expensive, so keep them in mind for when your parents come!
Across the bridge, down 213, and next to the big Royal Farms is Apo’s. They are your run-of-the-mill pizza parlor, with a more homemade feel than Domino’s and Pizza Hut. They are not as “Italian” as Proc’s and Luisa’s, however, because their cuisine leans more towards cheese steaks and fries. You order at a counter, but they do have seating available. Call and place an order for pick-up, or even better, call (410) 778-3737 for delivery.
If you’re just feeling a greasy, cheesy, fast food pizza, then of course you’re going to want Domino’s or Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut, located up 213 just past McDonalds, has amazing buttery crust and their pizza is so cheesy. Domino’s, however, has the advantage of being practically on-campus. And they deliver super late to satisfy your late-night weekend cravings.
And of course, if you feel as though you’ve had everything there is to offer in C-town and you’re itching for a road trip, head up 213 for about fifteen or twenty minutes until you run in to a town called Galena. The Galena Pizzeria is absolutely delicious. It has a friendly atmosphere and the portions are huge.
This fall weather is the perfect time to explore the town! Keep your eyes out for all of the amazing places I have talked about and keep reading the C-town Scoop to find out about all of the other great things C-town has to offer!
