Letizia's

666 Main Ave., Norwalk, CT - (203) 847-6022
Letizia’s pizza is Neapolitan style, meaning thin-crusted, but not too thin. Around the edge, it rises in a crisp ring of dough thick enough to deliver a good, bready crunch; in the center, depending on the weight of the toppings, it ranges from firm to slippery-soft. The pizzaioli at Letizia’s make this dough every day, then top it with a choice of ingredients that range from anchovies and broccoli to sausage and sliced tomatoes.

A whole garbage pizza:  a grand meal for at least two appetites.

Say cheese! Three kinds of cheese melt together atop the super-thin, brittle crust, forming a textural wonderland that varies from soft-as-brie goopy to chewy and crusty.

Pepperoni pizza -- note how the discs of pepperoni are cooked almost crisp.

This is a shot of Letizia's
"This is a shot of Letizia's "garbage pizza," with a good view of the semi-crunchy crust at the edge."

Wall space near the cash register is divided between pennants of New York teams and pictures of the family's restaurant in early days ... plus, of course, a map of Italy.

Letizia's does not look like one of the solar system's greatest pizza parlors.  But it is!
