Last night Kevin and I were contemplating dinner options. We could eat left over pea pesto (which is what was planned), throw something together from random things in the fridge and freezer, or go out to eat. We decided on a classic for us: Anthony’s in Thornton Park. Since I had just returned from working out and was still a hot, smelly mess and in gym clothes, we ordered it to go (you’re welcome, fellow diners).
A favorite of ours off their menu is the Sicilian pizza. It has a thick, doughy crust with a ton of flavor. We ordered half pepperoni for Kevin and half veggies for me. The veggies were piled on. I got green peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms and tomatoes in every bite. We also now have pizza for a week.
The best part is the melted mozzarella on top of the thick crust. It’s like eating really cheesy breadsticks.
Getting take-out from Anthony’s is nice because you don’t have to deal with their parking lot, which can sometimes be a pain. I don’t think there’s anything actually wrong with the parking lot, but it seems like their patrons like to park their cars in the middle of the lot while they pick up their food, so I’m always ended up blocked in for a little while.
I also love the Anthony’s Special calzone, which has sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, mozzarella, ricotta, mushrooms, green peppers and onions. Yes, it’s a lot of food. And a small size is plenty.
I definitely recommend you try Anthony’s for a great neighborhood slice.
We’ve made it halfway through the week! I’m excited because my workouts have gotten exponentially better due to Kevin buying me new earbuds for my iPhone. My old ones broke, so I had been using the standard ones that come with the phone, but they always fall out of my ears. Maybe my ears are abnormally small? I got a pair of New Balance over the ear, behind the head buds, and they’ve been working fantastically. Now I can focus on running instead of poking my ears every 30 seconds.
What is your favorite pizza topping? I usually prefer sausage, but with a thick crust, I like some veggies.
