I realize that good pizza is a matter of personal taste, but I must be misssing
something because I tried Delorenzo's Tomato pie twice so far and was not that
impressed. I recently tried Wildflowers Tomato pie for the first time and much
preferred it over Delorenzo's. My reasoning follows:
Delorenzo's Tomato Pie:
I found the sauce to be perfect one time and too salty the second time.
The crust along the oputer edge is just too crunchy for my liking and alone
it is rather bland hard and dry. They cut the slices in a haphazard manner
which only makes sharing it more diffuicult because the sliced are so unevenly
divided. The odd shapes also make it harder to eat. The biggest compalint is
that they don't even get the sauce close to the edge, leaving large portions
of tasteless hard crust. I had to throw out some of the leftover crust which
was so hard and dry it wasn't desirabe to eat.
Wildflower's Tomato Pie:
The crust was perfect. Crunchy and golden brown on the bottom
and very thin. The sauce was very close to Delorenzo's but I'd
need to do a side by side comparison to judge that more accurately.
I can't say which sauce was better, except that Delorenzo's was too
salty the second time I tried them. The topping went very close to
the edge and the crust along the edge was crunchy but still pliable
and not hard and dry like Delornzo's. The distribution of cheeze Vs
sauce seems about the same as Delorenzo's. The slices are cut into
nice evenly divided portions.
So in my opinion, WildFlower's Tomato pies win out over Delorenzo's
in every category I mentioned above. It just goes to show what power
advertising has. Delorenzo's has had a few rave reviews by the press
and you should see the madness at their pizza restaurant.
Delorenzo's doors open at 4pm and people are lined up about 15 to 20
deep when the doors open. By 4:20pm, the place is filled to capacity
and there is an hour wait to get a table and about 45 minutes wait to
order a pie to go. Amazing. And their Tomato pie isn't even that good
compared to WildFlowers.
Can someone please explain what it is that people love so much
about Delorenzo's. After having Wildflower's I feel like I'm missing
something something in my judgement of Tomato Pies.
If anyone here has tried both, I'd love to hear your take.
