Tosco's Pizza (Eagleville) - Pizza


Appears a large, 16" round pie with a cooked, crimson sauce layered with melted mozzarella cheese, and dark brown edges of crust, nearing black at some parts. - 4

The crust is golden brown underneath and well cooked towards the outside of the pie. There are some char marks, which is a nice sight. The edges of the crust are light, crispy, and airy like a hearth baked wafer. The middle of the pie droops slightly due to the weight of the cheese but overall, it's decent enough. - 4

The sauce is good. It's a very light scattering of crushed tomatoes blended with a bit of paste and thinned out around the crust. Italian seasoning is utilized in there. A mildly sweet, tangy flavor. - 3.5

The cheese is the Grande cheese, mentioned in this previous post. It's light, tasty, and springy for a little bit of texture. - 4

Overall, this is a nice pie. I like that it's near charred along the some of the crust. I liked the flavor. I went back for a few more slices. All good things. Tosco's uses a brick oven. This particular brick oven is fired by gas(I believe)& not by wood, or coal though. They are also a BYOB, so feel free to run across the street at D&J Deli to pick up a few beers, or bring in a nice bottle of red for a slice, or a bottle of white for linguini with olive oil and garlic. With all of the favorable revues on Urbanspoon, I figured I would check them out. I'm glad I did. - 4

Total Score: 3.9/5
