Pete & Elda's Bar and Carmen's Pizzeria
While my friends and I planned our attack we started off with some refreshments, an ice cold pitcher of Miller Lite and two glasses of the house pinot noir. I know what your thinking and yes, wine goes very well with pizza! We shared an order of the fried zucchini sticks, a plate of the golden crispy calamari and a large antipasto. The appetizers were perfectly prepared and more than enough for the four of us to share. The fried zucchini were my favorite! The zucchini was thinly sliced and breaded just enough that you could enjoy the crisp crust but still savor the tender veggie inside. And the tangy horseradish sauce really complimented the crunchy salty treat. Since the pizza is made so thin you can eat more than the average so we decided to get two large pizzas with an assortment of toppings. I am usually a veggie topping lover on my pizza, however there is something so crispy and delicate about P&E pizza that I did not want to spoil it with any additions. Just plain was perfect for me! The simplicity of P&E pizza is what has kept patrons coming back for years.
Next time your in the area give P&E a shot. Whether your favorite sports team is playing or you just want some GREAT pizza head on over to Pete & Elda's. And if your feeling really daring take the pizza challenge...Eat a WHOLE pie and get a free Pete & Elda's T-shirt! After one visit you'll see where their great reputation comes from!
