Roc-A-Fellas Pizza

Well, it looks like pizza night is on hold one more week. But, I'll tell you about Roc-a-fella's Pizza, the last pizza night we had before this brief hiatus. Nik headed out to Sharonville to pick us up a Pepperoni pizza and a Sausage, Spinach, and Ricotta pizza. Unfortunately, they burnt one of the pizzas. They offered the burnt one for free, or Nik could wait for them to make another. Nik chose to wait for another, but that meant that the one pizza that was already done and not burnt sat there while they re-did the burnt pizza. Apparently the people working there were nice about the situation, but it still made it a little difficult to judge fairly since the pizza(s) was not very warm. In any case, here's how they scored:

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

Appearance (overall): 3.83
Aroma (overall): 3.75
Taste (overall): 3.92
Crust - 4.00
Cheese - 3.83
Toppings - 3.83
Sauce - 3.33
Pepperoni Pizza (overall): 3.83
Specialty Pizza & Menu Options: 3.50
X-factor: 3.50

And here's what they looked like:

Kevin and I both noted how good the crust was since they brush a garlic butter sauce on the edge, so Kevin liked the wide edge to the crust. However, the really sweet sauce is holding the pizza back. I usually like a sweet sauce, but this was way too sweet. I was also disappointed in the spinach because it seemed to be frozen, not fresh. Roc-A-Fellas Pizza is a solid NY style pizza, but I'd have to say that I've had better NY style pizza in the Cincinnati area.

  1. Impressive and intense run-down, though agreed that evaluation would have been easier with two super-fresh pizzas delivered together. Thanks for continuing the quest + happy spooning! Cheers, Christine {at} urbanspoon {dot} com
