Flaming Pizza
« on: August 24, 2011, 01:07:07 PM »
Does anyone remember a pizza place on E. Walton (Chicago's Gold Coast) that served flaming pizza...began with an "A"?  This would have been in the early to mid-1980's.  The pizza was wonderful...once they brought it to your table they would drizzle a shot of brandy over it and light it  :o sort of like saganaki in Greektown.  Anyway the Greek theme this month reminded me of that, and wondered if anyone else had been there.  Now that I've brought this up....I may have to try it myself.   ::)

I don't know about that place, but Papa's Cafe in Bali has an interesting take on the flaming pizza - or "volcano pizza" as they call it.

Really?! A flaming or volcano pizza. I've never heard that one before! I've only heard of a Flaming Sambuca.  :-D
