Truth be told… I’ve had a hell of a time finding good pizza in Southwest Florida. Either the pizza dough is horrendous, there’s barely any sauce, the crust is absolutely flaccid, it’s not cooked enough, or they skimp on cheese.
I recently had Tony Sacco’s Coal Oven Pizza, based on recommendations, and it wasn’t bad for a chain. The ingredients were good, flavors were solid, but damn it, why are all of these pizzas so freakin floppy!
I had several pizzas, and they all were the same. As soon as you picked a slice up from the box, it would flop down and all of the toppings would fall off. These pizzas tasted better than most I’ve had while in SWFL, but I couldn’t get past the fact that I had to eat all of the toppings off of my plate with a fork.
The Margarita pizza was ok. The mozzarella was very bland. BBQ chicken pizza was topped with sauce but still had a dry feeling to it, due to the chicken being over cooked. The meat pizza was the best out of them all, but being so limp, it was eaten as a pile with a fork.
If anyone has a surefire spot for NY/NJ/PHILLY style pizza in Southwest Florida, PLEASE leave it in the comments or DM me.
