Betta's Italian Oven

Now that we're back to being 4 weeks behind on the blog again, I figured it's time to play some more catching up. My next choice for pizza night was Betta's Italian Oven in Norwood. Betta's is a family run restaurant that does wood-fired oven pizzas. Since the pizzas only come in one size (10"), I decided to get three (and a few of their of their homemade desserts): Pepperoni, Margherita, and the Spicy Diavolo. Since they don't have a website or menu online, I went in to the restaurant and waited for the pizzas after I ordered them. It was a cute restaurant with plenty of seating and the pizzas were done in 15 minutes. Not only were they quick, they were also delicious:

(1-5 scale, 1=worst, 5=best)

Appearance (overall): 4.25
Aroma (overall): 4.50
Taste (overall): 4.17
Crust - 4.33
Cheese - 3.83
Toppings - 3.83
Sauce - 3.83
Pepperoni Pizza (overall): 4.00
Specialty Pizza & Menu Options: 4.17
X-factor: 4.13

Overall, Betta's was a hit. All Kevin had to say was that wood-fired pizza is cool. Nik and I both noted that the spicy sauce on the spicy diavolo is really spicy and better than the regular tomato sauce on the pepperoni pizza. The pepperoni's were the "pepperoni grease boats" that so many places around here seem to go for (I prefer large pepperoni's). Nik thought the crust for the pepperoni pizza was underdone and would have scored it a "5" if it had been cooked appropriately.

What about the desserts? Delicious! Definitely try them, especially their homemade tiramisu.

  1. Amaretto creme cake is delish and worth the trip. Pizza and pasta are a plus, but dessert is a MUST.
