Original Steve’s

June 20, 2012


I convinced a comical crowd (aka my family) to join me for dinner at restaurant #4. We piled into Original Steve’s, stared at the menu boards for a few minutes, and finally walked up to the counter. We only slightly confused the poor cashier by changing our minds partway through—multiple times—but our food arrived at the table within 15 minutes just as we had ordered.  



I had clipped a coupon for a free order of cheesy breadsticks with an extra-large pie, so we dug into those first. Coated in mozzarella cheese and sprinkled with Parmesan, we each grabbed a couple and dunked them into the marinara and ranch sauces. They quickly disappeared, but we didn’t wait long until the pizzas arrived.



Many pizza parlors rarely offer any cheese besides mozzarella and Parmesan, but my brother ordered a personal pie with both mozzarella and asiago. He reported that he could distinctly taste both cheeses, yet he finished his meal without offering us a taste.



Not that we needed one! We ordered an extra-large pizza for the rest of the table: half Steve’s combo, half Greek gourmet. I only tried the Greek—I’m really allergic to mushrooms—but boy did it taste good! Fresh spinach and tomato slices covered the top, complemented by a generous sprinkling of feta and pepperoncinis for an extra little kick. With a smattering of olives and onions as well, every bite was a heaping mouthful of flavor.



I failed to receive reviews from the two people that ate the Steve’s combo pizza due to full mouths and content stomachs, the sure sign of a delicious flavor combo. I did try the sausage on top, and its meaty yet subtly sweet flavor tasted delicious with a bite of my own cheesy Greek slice.


Now if I may, I’d like to take a moment (or more) to describe the crust. You see, I am fairly critical of pizza crusts. I love them thicker and bready, ones where the cooks throw in a generous scoop of yeast and let the dough rise completely before covering it with sauce and cheese. No thin crust or deep dish pizzas for me, thank you! Steve must have read my mind because their crust was almost perfect. Almost. I would have enjoyed a slightly thicker edge around the rim of the pie, but other than that… Yum. Yum yum yum.


As Mary Poppins once said, “Practically perfect in every way.” Original Steve’s is my new favorite pizza place in town, and I’m already plotting excuses to go back again soon.
