Did you go to Mama's on Wentworth, or Phil and Dom's on Conway St.? Had a pie from Phil and Dom's last night after our trip home from the Northwoods and it was excellent. I've had bad luck with Mama's in the past. It all has to do with the huge feud within the family.
I went to Villa Roma many years ago, and I remember it as excellent.
Anne's is on the "go to" list
Tomasso's in Cedarburg, real good they make their pizza kind of upside down with the sauce on top if I remember correctly.
Also care to share that recipe for the sausage?
Right after the split, phil & doms was better!
But that changed and the original location was better around 2004 until about a year ago.
Neither place is what DeMarini's used to be.
When I got a pizza from DeMarini's, you could not see the cheese through the sausage, mushrooms or onions, now you can barely find any sausage on the thing.
So I started ordering double and triple sausage only to find less than what a regular pizza used to be,
Then Mama's changed it around and started doing them the way they always were, but a year ago it went to crap again.
it is a 4.5 hour drive for me to get down there, it is not worth it only to be disappointed, or to wonder if our pizza will be crap again.
Yes, we would drive down just for pizza, and to stop at Glorioso's deli and sciortinos bakery.
One time before Dom died, my brother and I went to his place on Lake Denoon, Dom remembered us from the original location, and we asked for a pizza the way they used to be made, Dominic made the pizza himself, and the waitress brought it out to us and said "What the heck is that?" and she had a hard time believing that is what a true Demarini's pizza used to be until Dom, My brother, and myself explained it to her better.
My DeMarinis Sausage clone;
I don't know about sharing, but I can tell you what gives it that special tang, use a little bit of chianti for flavor, on top of a typical fennel sausage recipe
I tried to attach a picture of a pizza from the original location the first and last time I ordered double sausage! it is not showing in the preview, so I do not know if it will be in this post or not>
If you were to order double sausage now, at either place, I bet there would be peices of sausage no closer than 3 inches from each other.
