Morgantown Edition: La Pizzeria

La PizzeriaA friend pointed out a new pizza place on Van Voorhis Road called La Pizzeria. I remembered this location vaguely from MiHaley's, though I think it was at the front of this building, and La Pizzeria is at the back/side.

La Pizzeria

Walking inside, you enter through a sort of dark, short hallway, which opens up into a small dining room. There were a few people behind the counter and in the kitchen talking casually, because I guess they weren't very busy.

La PizzeriaThe menu has pizza, calzones, wings, some subs and salads. I ordered a slice with mushrooms, and Tony got two pepperoni slices.

La PizzeriaOur pizza came out very, very quickly. I'm guessing they have some pizzas made to sell off in slices during lunch time. The first thing I noticed was the mushrooms were raw and just tossed on top. So, they weren't cooked with the pizza, which is kind of a bummer. Not the kind of texture you want. Beyond that, the pizza seemed fairly average. The pizza crust was a good flavor, but it wasn't crisp, and it got pretty greasy pretty quickly.

La PizzeriaOverall, fairly run of the mill, though I do like the flavor of the crust. Crisper, cooked mushrooms and a bit more spice to the sauce would win me over.
