Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza (Wayne) - Traditional Pizza

Appears a small 9" round diameter pie (lunch sized) with deep brown edges and a golden underside yielding several dark char spots.  The top layer is layered with evenly melted cheese and blotches of extra sauce nearing the center. - 4.5

The crust is thin, crispy, and nicely charred from the high heat.  The outer crust is crispy and crusty on the outside with a light and mildly chewy center. - 4.5

The sauce is really delicious.  It's of freshly crushed roma tomatoes, free of most of the residual acidity, and gently sweet.  Very nice and pleasant! - 4.5

The cheese retains it's chewiness and creamy flavors despite being cooked at the high oven temperatures. - 4

Overall, this is such a pleasant surprise to have this level of pizza being served locally.  If you're a fan of real NY style pizza with the thin, crispy, semi-charred crust and underside, you really need to get out to try this pizza.  It really satisfies the cravings when you're looking something similar to that trip to Grimaldi's, Lombardi's, or Patsy's - all legendary pies for similar reasons...coal fired pizza. - 4

Total Score: 4.3/5

We can't forget the beer!  Anthony's has a small selection of beers, including some local favorites like Victory Hop Devil IPA, which I've accompanied with my pizza in the picture above.

As a side note, Anthony's makes really good wings too.  As a wing lover(and rater), I couldn't bring myself to rate these, as they are not the hot wings that I compare on the site.  They are oven roasted with onions, herbs and oil.  Please try those, as well.  Very tasty stuff.
