Boston Style Pizza (North Wales) - Traditional Pan Pizza

Appears a large, 16" round pie with a thick, outer crust and blended cheese colors of white, orange, and yellow laying atop a layer of sauce. - 4

The crust is a sourdough crust, which is always a nice find.  It adds a little extra flavor and hits more of the taste buds.  It also seems to have a butter crust like they rubbed the pan with butter before laying the stretched dough on top.  It's got a nice, crispy, flaky biscuit underside and an airy, semi-crunchy outer crust. - 4.5

The sauce is vibrant, fresh, a tad sweet, and delicious.  This is a decent sauce on a pie that has already surprised me. - 4

The cheese is a blend of mozzarella, and cheddar, leaving the top more gooey, creamy, with a touch of salty sharpness that is fairly unique, and addictive. - 4.5

Overall, I stopped here on a whim because I was in the area and I have passed by a few times wondering what "Boston Style" pizza even was.  I was more than shocked when I couldn't wait to get into the next slice.  Apparently, Boston Style is a reference to the pan pizzas that were created in the Greek section of Boston during the 1950's.  Pretty damn good and not something you get a chance to try every day. - 4

Total Score: 4.2/5
