This year I will try a little better with new restaurants. I think one of the things my husband and I really want to do is try out all the pizza places we can find. Granted there are a lot, but Andy and I are up for the challenge. :)
We stumbled onto Venzo's Pizza by accident. We were planning on going to this other Mexican place, but didn't know that they weren't opened on Sundays. Venzo's Pizza caught our attention with the sign near the street that said two slices and a drink for $3.99. To me that didn't seemed bad because most places charge $3.99 for one slice of pizza.
The place itself wasn't heavily decorated nor did it have really bright lighting. I really didn't mind it because I prefer places that are more casual and laid back.
Andy and I decided each to get 2 slices and a drink. We were hoping that it was enough food because we were both starving from a small lunch that day. The slices were just plain cheese and each additional topping was $0.50. We both decided to get pineapple and ham.
While we waited, we watched the two guys at work and perused the menu they had at the counter. One was getting the phone calls and throwing the pizza dough while the other was putting the toppings on. The menu consisted of a lot of things. There was specialty pizzas, salads, and calzones. After 5 minutes or so, one of the guys brought out our pizzas and said that our second slices will come out a little bit later.
I was shocked when they brought the first slices out because they were huge! They had to use two paper plates for the slices. The pizza was delicious. I had ham and pineapple in each bit with plenty of cheese and a delicious crust.
Venzo's was great. I definitely want to come back and try their specialty pizzas and their specials again. Next time, I will stick to one slice only.
