Time Out Café, Wayne, NJ
The Classic and the San Francisco Pies.
The Classic: classic red sauce, mozzarella. The San Francisco: classic red sauce, artichokes, mozzarella, ricotta, chopped garlic.
Yes - this pizza came from a gas station...
My only issue: Although the Time Out Cafe advertises the use of imported Italian Caputo flour, ("the best in the world") the dough is pre-made. BUT - in spite of this, it was surprisingly good with no detectable pre-made flavor, in fact, the only giveaway was the dimpling on the bottom of the crust from sitting on a cooling grate at some dough factory. This for you pizza aficionado's is sacrilege, but when all other local pizza joints are charging upwards of 15 bucks for a large pie, this tasty beauty can be delivered to your doorstep for only $8.99 - that isn't a typo, it's really only $8.99 for the 18 inch plain pie. (Starting to forget about the dough aren't you...) And they are adamant about their "no tipping required" statement on the menu. (but who the hell doesn't tip?)
The sauce had a homemade flavor and was not overpowered by dry seasonings. The cheese I'm guessing was a low moisture mozzarella and it was laid on thick. The brick oven supplied a perfect crispness and the rest was history. A very (very) good pie for the money.
Next up was the specialty pie: I ordered a 10 inch San Francisco. With artichokes, ricotta and chopped garlic added to the classic pie, this was another winner. The flavor of all the toppings blended perfectly and at $6.99, it was another home run.
There you have it, two pizzas can be freshly cooked, delivered to your doorstep and enjoyed all for $17 and some odd change.
