Terita's Pizza (3905 Cleveland Ave. Columbus,OH)

Hype: Our friend Jason says that this is favorite pizza place in Columbus next to Dante's. Jason has excellent taste in pizza, so we highly anticipated hitting this place up.

Scene: Its carry out only, but it had all the hallmarks of a family owned pizza shop. There were some old black and white photos on the wall of old Italian guys having fun in the '50s and Italian flags adorning the windows as curtains. It was nice to see that the cooler was stocked with orange crush soda and 40 oz. bottles of malt liquor.

The Pie:

Crust: Soft, firm, but not as crispy as I would have liked. Not extremely flavorful, but not bad by any means. Maybe a little too doughy.

Sauce: Tangy and delicious. May I say refreshing? Many thin crust pies skimp on the sauce in favor of cheese, but not these guys. Just the right amount.

Cheese: Cooked well and clung to the slices without sliding off. Good stuff.

Peps: Cupped, crispy and greasy. Quite tasty. A good amount without being overwhelming.

Overall: The sign says they've been in business since 1959 and you can see why. The pizza has a unique flavor not quite like any other pie in Columbus. A strong 4 out of 5 pies. Also, all of the ingredients were equally distributed which is hard to find in a pie these days. Plus, they have the coolest mascot, the Pizza Man!
