Many of you know that I am a Realtor(r).Today, I had the home inspector, heating & air inspector and the termite inspector all lined up to check out a super cool house I just sold in Forest Hills. As I got the house open for them, I realized that I was so hungry I felt woozy. Guess those bing cherries from this morning were rapidly waning. So, I got them started and then fled the scene in search of some quick sustenance. Just about 2 blocks down Forest Drive was The Pizza Joint.
I've been here before but I don't go often. Not for any particular reason, but I'm just not over there all that much. The waitress presented me with a menu and a lunch specials menu. I love a restaurant that actually has specials...you know, like a good deal, not just something that's not normally on the menu. I perused the list and decided on a simple, yet tried & true selection...a slice and a salad for a mere $5.25. That's a helluva price!
|Forgot to mention it came with a garlic knot|
The slice was about the size of my head. I think this is a funny pizza place phenomenon...the slice. Seems like it would be a slice from a regular large pizza, but it never is. It's essentially a medium pizza made into a triangle shape.
|Mama Mia! That's a big ol' slice|
The Pizza Joint makes good pizza though. Please don't misunderstand me. The sweetness of the sauce just isn't my most favorite, but from reading others' reviews, some people find that very appealing. As I've written before, pizza is like art. When that dough hits the pan, it's a blank canvas for the culinary artist in us all! This place has a cool, casual atmosphere and I was interested to note that their Happy Hour begins at 2:00. Hmmmm ;-0
