Sicilia's Pizza (22 E. Frambes Rd. Cols.,OH)

Hype:Jim and I were sitting around craving some pie late last week and we saw an ad for this new place called Jimmy's on Oakland Park. We called Jimmy, but the line rang busy for like 20 mins. When the phone actually starting ringing Jimmy wouldn't pick up, so we scanned the saver for some campus dogshit pizza and found this new place Sicilia's. Expectations were low considering this was the former location of some pretty awful pies,(the Funky Monkey, Shankoty's, etc.), but since the price was only $6.99 for a large 14" pie, we thought we'd take our chances.

Scene: We were drunk and it was late so we weren't driving anywhere and got delivery. Being located in the heart of campus you can pretty much guess what the scene was like.

The Pie:
As I previously noted, we ordered a 14" pie. Look at the photo above and notice how much smaller the pizza is then the 12" Living Color picture sleeve. We could have easily slid this pie into the record sleeve and had plenty of room to spare. Talk about shady, false advertising.
Crust: Alright actually. Although flimsy, it had a nice texture and was slightly crispy and a bit doughy. Prob. the pie's best feature.
Sauce: Pretty much non-existent. I did catch some hint of oregano, but there wasn't enough of it on the pie to judge. weak.
Cheese: Way too much. Gooey, stringy and overwhelming. If they had eased off on the cheese a little it would have been way better as it had a decent garlicy substance to it.
Peps: whoa. Don't know if you can tell by the picture, but they were strewn haphazardly about all over the pie. They were literally stacked together in some spots. Very poor distribution. Not much flavor either, just grease.
Overall: Although, this pie had some extremely weak points, it wasn't quite as bad as we expected. It tasted better with each successive slice and if it hadn't been 3-4 inches smaller than the size we ordered, it might have scored a low 3. Due to this fact, it scores a pretty solid 2. This pizza recommended for partying only.

Wasn't Shankoty pizza the place where you got a free pizza if you bought 2 bongs?

I did the same thing involving the Saver a week ago. I thought going by the name and the ads it would be a nice Italian pie, but I was wrong :( The pie was hot when it left the shop and obviously had been sliding around in the driver's car -- the cheese and pepperoni were all sloshed over to one side. This pizza made me sad. Shoulda called Gattos.
