Benny’s Pizzeria & Restaurant: Cheese Pie Edition

QUICK REVIEW!!!

Ok so last time I promised I would return to Benny’s to have a taste of their regular cheese slice.  I also promised my fiance at that time (now my wife as of January 7th!!) that we would pig out after the wedding on a whole pie of pizza together.  Today I fullfilled that promise.

First off being the fatties that we were we ordered it before we got there so it would be funky fresh as soon as we walked in – and it was.  And for one of the first times in a long time we didn’t panic and order a bunch of extra things like a side of spicy fries (mmmmm, spicy fries) or a falafel.  We just focused on the pizza this time.

The pie was pretty good (I had 3 4 slices), but not as good as Rosa’s in the city.

Let’s break it down:

Dough: Perfectly cooked, just barely crispy with a good dough-e flavor
Cheese: Worse part about it? It still tastes good just not as flavorful as it should be.  They may be using cheap or a low fat kind of cheese
Sauce:  Perfect tomato-e flavor, not sweet like some places like to do

So overall the pizza was better than say La pizzeria or Benjy’s but like I said not a Rosa’s.  Rosa’s has them beat with better cheese.

I think they might have messed up on the price because we got the pie and a bottle of Fresca for $14.50 which was an amazing deal! Was it mistake or a Wednesday night special? I’m not sure and we were too afraid to ask!

Heres a tip: get a side of their creamy caeser dressing (even though I think it was 98% mayonnaise) to dip the crust in – it’s delicious!

Def a top kosher pizza joint if you are ever looking to grab a quick slice!
