Police Station Pizza in Ambridge, PA

Anyone ever have pizza from this place?  Everything was unique.  The crust was crunchy and airy.  The sauce was very fresh and the pepperoni was excellent.  Pepperoni was put on cold after cheese was melted and then it went straight into the box.

I never heard of them. I'll have to try when I get out that way.

Another place in Pgh put the toppings on after baked if u order the exrtra cheese. I rather all cheese melted.

Your photos are making me very hungry. Thanks for the posting. When I am back home in Youngstown, Ohio, I visit Wedgewood Pizzeria. They have a very similar Sicilian Style pizza. However, they cook the peperoni on the pizza. Thanks again for sharing the photos.

Pepperoni appears to be the same.  Smaller then norm and really tastes good.  Not Ezzo pepperoni is it?

Here is a photo of a Wedgewood Pizza. I grew up on this pizza and still love it. I have gone as far as to have family bring a few half cooked pizzas on the plane with them.

Oh yes, I've had it before. It's considered "Ohio Valley Style Pizza". The Sicilian type crust is baked with sauce only and then topped with mozzarella after it comes out of the oven. Any additional toppings are put on & the pizza is put back in the oven for a short time to heat the extra toppings through. It is similar to DeCarlo's pizza in the Pittsburgh area, same style. If you want your toppings fully baked on the pie from the start, you need to let them know when you order it.

Police Station used to have a store in Zelienople for a short while but couldn't seem to make a go of it.

The crust and pepperoni at this place is very special.
