This was the last pizzeria we visited. In a matter of a few hours we tried pizzas from 4 pizzerias. I didnít see a website for Drexel Hill Style Pizza, but this is their menu.http://www.allmenus.com/pa/marple/288977-drexel-hill-style-pizza/menu/
This was one kind of Greek style pizza Steve remembered from long ago, but Steve said it wasnít his favorite. He told me he didnít think the cheese and sauce were applied to the edges like Greek Styles here on the forum, but we would wait and see when we got there. Drexel Hill Style Pizza is owned by Greeks and first opened in 1968.
The pizzas were already sitting in the steel pan with sauce and cheeses already applied. Steve was right that the sauce and cheese werenít applied to the edges like here on the forum.
Steve and I were getting perturbed that it was taking so long to bake the pizza. We both thought that the pizza would be too dry from the long bake. We didnít time the bake, but it was long for a 10Ē pizza. It can be seen in the picture of the ovens (to the left of the ovens), the stack of pizzas piled up waiting to be baked. I wonder how the dough doesnít proof too much sitting at room temperatures.
I think Steve and I could taste the cheddar in the cheeses, and this pie was good, but would have been a lot better if it wasnít baked as long. The young gal tending to the pizzas and oven sure didnít seem like she checked them very often and seemed to just go back in the room.
Maybe Steve will post on how he remembered these pizzas from years ago. Steve remembered that the building that Drexel Hill Style Pizza is in was a firehouse at one time. There were pictures on the wall of the firehouse.
