The crust lining the bottom of this undercooked pizza, $11.65, was too thin. As a result, each slice was far too flimsy, and the cheese and pepperoni tended to slide off easily. The pizza could have used a couple more minutes in the oven.
Here are some tips for ordering and reheating your Super Bowl pizza:
Some restaurant / carryouts such as Gil's Pizza on Belair Road offer half-baked pizzas. You pick them up, take them home and finish baking them in your own oven. That makes for maximum freshness, said Gil's co-owner Frank Secret.
If your favorite pizza joint normally takes 15 to 20 minutes to make and bake your order, allow for twice that time on Big Game Sunday, said Mauro Coppola, owner of Pasticcio Italian Kitchen on Boston Street.
To warm up a pizza before serving, preheat your oven to 350 degrees, take the pizza out of the box and put it in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes. Once the cheese starts to bubble, you know it's ready, said Stephanie Sadler, manager of Pap Pap's Pizza and Subs in Eldersburg.
